Mercedes-Benz A-Class (W176)

mercedes-benz-a-class-w176 body

5 Pros

  1. The Mercedes Benz A Class looks like an expensive hoodie – people will think you are young and loaded
  2. The interior is terrific with an awesome iPhone friendly screen and the engines are very fuel efficient
  3. Standard safety equipment is extensive: it has 9 airbags; it warns you if you are about to have an accident, it warns you if you are about to fall asleep; it parks itself; it has a rear view camera and it will stop you rolling down a hill. Mercedes have clearly decided that you cannot look after yourself
  4. It feels sporty and drives that way
  5. Made in Germany – although because demand has been so high, some are being made in Finland – check with your dealer

5 Cons

  1. The small windows can make the rear seats a bit claustrophobic
  2. The boot is shallow and difficult to use
  3. Rearward visibility is not great and the run flat tyres can cause a bit of a rough ride
  4. The turning circle is quite large
  5. Standard 7 speed automatic gearbox is generally considered not best in class

Concluding personality type: Tom Cruise: Talented and good looking but not quite flawless
