      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      This Merecedes A-Class is a very good car for the price. It is small (easy to park) but has a very good engine (1.9-litre). This is not only powerful but is also very economical and it delivers around 40 miles per gallon. Inside the car, you will notice that there is quite a lot of room for a car that seems too small to be in production. The A-class ranges from just £13,500 to nearly £19,000. The 1.9-litre A-Class has a 0-60 time of 8.8 seconds and is very quick and nippy on the road. All of these features came with my car: Adjustable steering rake Alarm Alloy Wheels Anti-lock brakes Central Locking Driver's airbag Electric mirrors Electric rear windows Electric sunroof Heated mirrors Immobiliser Leather seats Locking wheel nuts Passenger airbag Power steering Radio Remote central locking Seat height adjust. Seatbelt pretensioners Side airbags Side impact bars Split-fold rear seats Traction control The leather seats are an excellent addition to my car and I think they are extremely comfortable. Insurance costs are low as well and this car is only Insurance Group 8! Now everybody can own a Mercedes......The merc is a very good car, handles well, looks good, is easy to park, is easy to park, is very good to look at, is extremely cheap, for the less affleunt pocket (people who can't afford 'proper' Mercedes). It drives like a dream, and is great for all you stingy cheapskates out there!

        I think the Mercedes-Benz A-class is a cracking wee car. However, I do think it is a bit onthe small side. So I'm relieved to tell you that they have just brought a new longer A-class out. This new longer A-class sticks to the clever packaging of the original but it now has seven inches extra. You may be thinking whats the big deal its only seven inches. However, this now gies the car so much more leg room in the back that it has more leg room than the S-class saloon. All you diesel buyers that the A170 CDI common rail engine has been uprated from 90 to 95 bhp, improving the acceleration yet keeping the high economy. Petrol engines have remaied as before. To cope with the old problems the car had when it kept toppiling over they have improved the electronic stability programme, ESP, has been linked up with the Brake assist system to optimize braking force in emergency situations. Safety has become a big aspect of the A-class as well as the engine which will fold and slide under the seats in the event of a front impact. As well as this driver and front passengers are also protected by front and side airbags and window airbags are an option. The air conditioning has also been improved, it now has a dew point sensor. What's that I hear you cry. Well its a thing you switch on when humidity reaches a certain level. Sorry thats all I know about that but you get the idea. Minor changes have have also beenmade to the exterior of the A-class. Contoured Bumpers, protective strips,and clear lamp covers . Inside they have used softer materials on the re-designed dashboard. All in all the A-class is a great little car from those great, big dealers Mercedes.
