Mercedes-Benz A-Class (13-18)


4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I don't know ,other than I like a sporty styled car without the performance of the top performance specs--which you cannot really use in any case. The cars looks have caused others to comment positively.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Everyone has commented favourable-it is an eye catching car in Northern Lights Violet.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Possibly , but I think , I might stretch to the CLA or CLA shooting brake in order to gain more luggage space.

What are you likely to buy next?
No idea really, but probably a Mercedes CLA as I said to get the extra luggage space.

Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Didn't buy from a dealer

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
March 2015

Did you get a good deal and why?
I would say yes. Got a very good trade in price for old car. Got a good discount over list price for the spec. Also 3 years free servicing.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I simply thought it looked great and enjoyed the test drive. I was looking for a slightly smaller car and probably the car's looks both internal and external were the main factors along with fuel consumption figures.

What was the dealer like?
Excellent. Could not have been more helpful or attentive.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
I was concerned that it would be underpowered compared to previous car but it feels adequate and climbs a steep hill well. Yes it parks easy. You do notice the auto gear changes and sometimes there is ,I think, a little turbo lag. I enjoy driving this car but a wee bit extra power would be great.

What's it like to park?
I find parking it easy , despite a small back window. Having said this my last car was not so easy to park.

Living with it

Have you had any problems with the car?
No -car is absolutely terrific -I love it, apart from the small boot space. It feels great in the drivers seat , looks very sporty . Performance is adequate not stunning and economy excellent.

What's most practical about your car?
I do not do I high mileage, or many long journeys , so overall the car is a great blend of style ,size and quality.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
I have fitted Becker pilot which is great. Also like the auto lights and rain sensing wipers. I also like the transmission options. The only accessory I would want , that is missing, is parking sensors.
