Mercedes-Benz A-Class details:
The second generation Mercedes Mercedes-Benz A-class has a sportier stance than its predecessor especially the 3-door version. It has a pair of sweeping headlights up front, a bolder grille and flowing lines along the side. The edges of the back display flow into the sides of the taillights, which in turn drops to form a low boot sill, which makes loading luggage easy. We tested the Elegance model, the second in a range of three, which adds 16-inch alloy wheels, body coloured door handles and wing mirrors, front fog lamps and bits of chrome over the entry-level Classic model.
The Mercedes-Benz A-class provides a saloon car-sized cab in a Supermini-cum-mpv-sized suite. Shoulder, head and leg space in both front and back is impressive. Its boot capacity of 395 litres is 21 per cent more than the previous model. Loading luggage is simple with a low boot sill, although a lower boot floor can make loading bulky objects tricky. The back seatings can be folded to produce a flat loading space, which creates 1340, litres of room. Mercedes’ Easy-vario system enables the removal of the back and front passenger backrests, increasing luggage volume to a class-leading 1955, litres.
Despite the Mercedes-Benz A-class' high starting price tag, general models are poorly equipped the entry-level Classic does without air-con and alloys. Our Elegance test vehicle is the second model in the range and adds electric back windows (five door only), air-con, alloys, a cooled glovebox, a 12v socket in the back, automatic headlights and wipers and a bulb failure indicator. You'll need to update to the Avantgarde to receive brighter projection headlights and Artico (a man-made leather) upholstery.
