Mercedes-Benz A-Class (05-12)

Value

3 out of 5

£17,750, a lot of kit for your money but cant help feeling I'd have paid £3-4k less for equivalent Ford/Vauxhall etc.

Costs

5 out of 5

Very good, got servicing built into finance and diesel plant returning between 40-45 mpg.

Driving

4 out of 5

Very good. Only gripe is that steering is a little too light.

Performance

4 out of 5

Quick for a diesel (0-60 10ish seconds), although I wish I had gone for A200 now.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Tops. Never failed me and nothing has gone wrong (done 4,000 miles).

Good, Merc badge but proper a Merc, not like the previous model.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Quality, leathered trimmed seats, like being sat in an arm chair, especially in the passenger seat.
