Mercedes-Benz A-Class A140 Classic 5d (01) (2004/53) - Owner Review

Very spacious especially if you removed the back seats, which are easy to move forward and fold etc. Easy to park as it's got a pretty much flat front.

Fast enough, gets up to speed quickly and is very comfortable at 70mph +. High up driving position gives you a good view.

When I bought it the rear shock absorber need replacing along with both front brake hoses, which led to an expensive MOT.
