A Minus - A Car With a Star (Update #4 Final)

AdvantagesCompact, Stylish, Mercedes

DisadvantagesHard Ride, Ruinous Servicing Costs, Depreciation

"...only slightly. (ii) labour rates at Mercedes UK dealers are vast. (iii) unexpected costs are high and happen too early in the life of the car. (iv) depreciation - always a killer (and not included in the £2000 above). We have been offered 33% of the new price after only 3 years. Reason - the semi-auto ACS clutch. Not popular in the trade. Even MB dealers would not touch it !!!!!!! Fuel Economy -------------------- has only ever been average ..." Read review

Mercedes A160 - All things, for all men

AdvantagesInterior Space, Visibility, Excellent engine & transmission

DisadvantagesLooks a bit like Camilla Parker-Bowles, head on.

"...premium badge on the front. Mercedes Benz must be congratulated for having the male genitalia to design, and more importantly, develop a car for a niche that had not yet been carved from a market of euro-boxes and small hatchbacks. People know this is a Mercedes Benz, and they certainly know the price premium that the badge requests. What people don't know, however, is that a used A-Class can be picked up for little more than Renault Scenic money. == ..." Read review

A160 Elegance 2000 W

AdvantagesCompact Size, Higher than average ride, Flexiable

DisadvantagesExpensive oils (fully synthetic) recommended in servicing

"Confortable car with a reasonable smooth ride and fair economy, I return between 34 and 39 mpg and I am not a light footed driver. I serviced recently myself and when I found all the parts in the car it only took 2 hours for filters, plugs and oil change. Being able to remove all the seats bar the drivers gives a good space for carrying loads on the odd occasion. Boot space isn't bad for a smallish car. Overall I rate this car highly, it is fun ..."

Quick review of Mercedes A 160

"The car is great to have to get around, its fast and stylish. If you are looking for a car for a few years, then this one is great, but if you want a car for longer, then this is not the car. I have had this car for a long time now, and recently, I have been spending £1000's fixing it and getting it back to working order.

Mercedes A160 Avantgarde 53 plate

AdvantagesVersatile

DisadvantagesEconomy

"...even more space! Typically with a mercedes they have thought everything out. All the gadgets in the car have been worked out to be practical and easy to use. The dashboard controls and simple to use and informative. All buttons are easy to reach and logically laid out. The speakers in the car are well laid out. As with previous cars I expected to have to wire in decent speakers but I found this wasn't necessary. As with all Mercs the MPG ..." Read review

Top of the class

Advantageseverything but

Disadvantagesinterior colour scheme

"...the surprising thing about the Mercedes A class is that is so nearly succeds. The exhaust on the 160 version has a sporty note and the accelertion is brisk and whilst motorway cruising it is easy to pass the legal limit without realising. The accomodation provided within the high sided body is spacious in the front though legroom is a little limited in the rear. No one could complain about the head room and if they try to the front seats are height ..." Read review
