The Mercedes-Benz A Class is a city car and hatchback rolled into one. The latest Mercedes-Benz A Class is safer, greener and more attractive. It is available in a three door and a five door version. It is deceptively spacious with a luxurious interior packed with safety features, innovations and equipments levels expected from Mercedes-Benz.
The interior has been upgraded with larger stowage compartments and new fabrics. The rear seats can tumble forwards to extend luggage space and there are neat storage areas around the cabin.
There are two petrol options, the A160 with a 1.5 litre 95bhp unit and the A180 with its 1.7 litre producing 116bhp. Performance is as modest as those power ratings suggest with the A160 taking 12.6 seconds to reach 62mph from a standing start and the A180 capable of 10.9 seconds from 0 to 62mph. The diesel options include the Mercedes-Benz A160 CDI 2.0 litre and the A180 CDI which has 109bhp.
