★ Introduction ★ This review is based on my experience of owning and using a Mercedes A Class Classic 140 over the past 5 years. This review may not be lacking a little in terms of technical specs, since I do not really know much more about cars than being able to open the bonnet...

Proit's small

Contrait's small!

The car is distinctive with it's mini-MPV looks, the only other car in its class is the Audi A2 which in my view is perhaps the more solid car. Having considered this car in my recent quest for a new car, I have run my eyes over the car and played around with the various twiddly bits for a...

This is obviously a vehicle that cannot make up its mind as to what it's supposed to do or be. Is it a car, a very small truck, or an MPV that's been concertina'd in a crash? Many people have asked why Mercedes built this thing but, as (unexpectedly) many drivers have bought one, something about...

ProIt's a mercedes! Easy to drive and park

ContraSmall boot, service costs.

It may seem a strange time to write a review about the original Mercedes A Class considering that the revised model is now available. However, I guess there's still a good second hand market for the original A Class, so if you're thinking of buying one now, this is for you. I'd always wanted an A...

I purchased my Merc A140 from Mercedes Direct in August 2004, it was a green one and had 17k on the clock, on an Avantgarde trim. Recently though I've sold it and now feel its appropriate to list the pros and cons of this particular model Size & Space For a start, I bought the long-wheel base...

published 11/03/2003

ProVery Universal, great for carrying loads

ContraUnpredictable traction control, Merc service costs

Since passing my driving test 2 years ago, I have been cruising around in my parents A class, and my mk3 Fiesta. The first thing to stike you when driving an A Class is how refined it is. Sure its the size of a fiesta, and in some cases its cheaper, but you can really appreciate the quality...

This is my first review, and had never planned to do one until the Mercede Benz A-Class moved me to writing about it. I purchased a A140 Avangarde in December of last year. I have to say I am completely bowled over by what a complete car it is. It may be as short as a Ford KA, but there is space...

I bought this car after having my third child. It was to be our family second car so that I could transport three children about safely when my husband was at work. Our main car is an Alfa Romeo 156 however the baby merc has taken over. We use it all the time as a family car. All the children fit...

Purchased from a Mercedes Dealership in France and personally imported, the buying experience lived up to the name A Class. Using the French luxury option, a leather interior and sunroof were added above the UK elegance spec, at a competitive price. The chrome accents fit well with the silver...

After driving one of these beauties - Mercedes A-140 for just over two weeks, I thought I'd best share my experience. THe Car is a very good looking small people carrier which benefits from an excellent quality finish, all the panels and bits are screwed down properly and i never heard a squeek...

Contranone

What a car. It has a list price of around £14000 but it is readily available at car supermarkets for just £12,000. What a bargain. For the same price as a Ford Focus you can have a MERCEDES. Not only does the A class combine style, space and value it also offers a great drive. The 1.4 litre...

ContraSmall, no boot space, hard suspension

I was issued with a Mercedes A140 whilst my Ford Focus 2.0 Estate was being mended after some little vandals tried to steal it ... that's another story... and I'm afraid I wasn't too impressed. The most impressive feature for me was the keyring where the key flips inside the key ring. Tiny things...

ContraSuspension, Minor Inconveniences

The A140 is a great car to drive, the clutch is not too heavy, and generally has a laid back feel to it. The steering wheel is quite responsive making three point turns quite a doddle :) Boot space is great, however only when the rear seats are up or taken out, Then you have a really big boot...

ContraMercedes dealerships.

We have had our A class now for over 7 years and it is getting a little long in the tooth now. The main problems we have had are that the "A" pillars are so thick they make for a scary blind spot, which has caused a few sphincter clenching moments over the years. The anti-roll bar drop link...
