The A-Class is packed with the latest technology and features. It comes standard with a digital instrument cluster, a touchscreen infotainment system, and a variety of driver assistance features such as autonomous braking and lane assist. It also benefits from being one of the safest cars on the road, with top marks from the NCAP (New Car Assessment Programme).
A used Mercedes A-Class is a fun-to-drive car with responsive handling and a well-balanced ride. It is also a very economical car, depending on the model that you go for. Many A-Class models offer fuel economy ratings that are well above the average for their class.
The A-Class is one of the most luxurious hatchbacks on the market, but it also has one of the largest price tags for a car in this class. Its main challengers are the fellow German giants with the Volkswagen Golf and the BMW 1 Series keeping them honest. Other brands do better in the sales charts such as Ford with their Focus and Fiesta models that are extremely popular in the UK. There are also Korean brands that offer fantastic quality and spec for a fraction of the price with the likes of the KIA Ceed or the Hyundai i30.
