Ten Second Review
Mercedes-Benz A Class Lease Review - We love it when we come across a car that thoroughly impresses us with its performance and, yes, overall class. There is no denying that the Mercedes Benz A-Class (no pun intended) has that in droves.
Those who are used to the original A-Class’ conventional (read: tall and boxy) hatchback body will delight in its newer look, which is sleeker and definitely far more stylish, lending it a sporty and premium look.
The interior offers generous space up front. The same could not be said for the back seats, however, which can be quite cramped, especially for taller passengers. They are also likely to have a problem getting in and out of the back seat, no thanks to the shape of the doors which, for lack of a better term, could only be described as awkward.
But there is an upside to it: the rear seats can be folded up, freeing more storage space and effectively turning what would have, at first glance, been dismissed as not “family-friendly” at all. It retains that “sandwich floor” design, a feature that has already been identified with the original Mercedes Benz A-Class. The dashboard looks great, but not as user-friendly as we would want it to be, what with too many buttons to familiarize yourself with.
The Mercedes Benz A-Class comes in three diesel engine choices and four petrol engine choices, which means that it can cater to a broad clientele, with different needs in their car engines. It also comes with a “Comfort option”, and the controls are light enough to turn it into a fun drive.
When it comes to fuel economy, the A-Class holds its own, although it is not as efficient as similar models in its class. Despite the slightly steep price tag attached to it, there is no denying that the Mercedes Benz A-Class is a car worth spending your money on.
For a while the A-class was the car in Mercedes range that was a bit of a "nearly" model. By this we mean the car that should have been a big success but somehow fell short of the mark. This has all changed with the latest generation as the German based manufacturer has solidified the offering and stuck to the pure value that they're known for providing.
This is definitely a small car with class, style, durability and quality throughout. Not only do you get a car that has the luxury interior of a business vehicle but it drives smoothly giving you a real sense of control and security with every journey. Top that with some seriously sharp looks on the external bodywork and you've got a clear winner.
If you're in the market for a quality small car and decide not to consider the A-Class you've got some serious thinking to do.
