Mercedes-Benz A-Class AMG A45 5d 4Matic (2015/15) - Owner Review

5 Door and ISOFIX. Reasonable Boot. Insurance reasonable for such a performance car. Only managed max 33mpg when driving sensibly in Comfort mode - not the claimed 42mpg!

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Most people think I have a boring A Class ... until I fire up the engine and the performance exhaust rumbles into play....

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Love the noise.... I hope!

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes - great value for package.

What are you likely to buy next?
Maybe another M Car, perhaps a new M2 or used M4.

Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Franchised

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£35,000

When did you buy the car?
October 2015

Did you get a good deal and why?
Good deal paid £35k for a car only 6 months old and 6k on clock - RRP £42k so 'lost' over £1k a month since new.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Wanted experience an AMG.

What was the dealer like?
Mixed. Gave me a demonstrator for a day. Fair trade in and overall good deal. However, other issues included only 1 key on collection, no manual and let me drive off without road tax in place!

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
AWD is excellent as is the seamless DCT gearbox. The pure acceleration beats my previous 991 991 S hands down. The ride is very hard as are the Recaro sport seats.

What's it like to park?
Mine has optional reversing camera which is great.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
No not yet - but only had it 4 weeks.

What's most practical about your car?
5 Door and ISOFIX. Reasonable Boot. Insurance reasonable for such a performance car. Only managed max 33mpg when driving sensibly in Comfort mode - not the claimed 42mpg!

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Car fitted with some great options: Becker Sat Nav Module, AMG Performance Exhaust, Black 19 inch AMG alloys, reversing camera... standard Recaro seats. Optional AMG Performance exhaust is amazing in Sport mode.... the neighbours know when I'm coming home. The optional panoramic roof is a great addition too.
