Mercedes A-Class

The new A-Class sits on a revised platform with a new interior, tech and engines. The sleek exterior moves the old car’s aerodynamics into a new dimension. Although it’s a similar size to the likes of the Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra, the Mercedes A-Class an alternative to more ‘premium’ models, such as the Audi A3 and BMW 1 Series.

There’s no doubt the Mercedes A-Class interior looks like nothing else. It’s dominated by the two free-standing digital screens that sit on top of the dashboard. Upgrade the A-Class from SE to Sport or AMG Line, and you smarten up the cabin with some extra chrome and some higher-quality trim, but the optional Executive equipment Pack includes the 10.25-inch media display, heated front seats and Active Parking Assist with PARKTRONIC.

The A180d is a 1.5 diesel with 114 bhp that can reach 62 mph in 10.5 seconds and return a claimed 67.3 mpg. The 1.33 litre turbo charged petrol engined A200 has 161bhp and can hit 62mph in 8 seconds and return a claimed 53.3 miles per gallon. Both engines are paired to a 7 speed dual clutch automatic.

Quote from Matt Watson of Carwow  ‘Lord knows, car reviewers are prone to over-exaggerate, but there really is no other word to describe the A-Class’s cabin. It’s stunning’
