“'A' big car inside 'A' small one!”

Written on: 04/10/2011 by John Thompson (38 reviews written)

I have driven and owned lots of Mercedes over thirty years, and the A Class (2005 on) is a proper Benz in every way, although the original model never impressed me like the current one! Despite the size, it's really spacious, and has that hewn from rock feel about it. My A160 CDi Avantgarde is a 2.0 litre 5 door, which is tuned down for economy, and while a heavily built Mercedes will never match a wafer thin Fiat 500 for outright economy, it's respectable enough at 40-45mpg overall, but… Read Full Review

One year on! The little Benz still offers snag free motoring, an average fuel consumption of around 45mpg (52 on a run though) and has passed 8500 miles with no defects whatsoever.

It remains placid, comfortable and practical, if a little unexciting, and I love it.

Past cars include a 2001 Lexus LS430, 2006 Mazda RX8 and 2009 Porsche 911, but the Mercedes simply does what a car should, it covers all my realistic requirements for my realistic motoring. It has the cache of a Mercedes badge, and the running costs of a Ford!

“napoletani99 has hit the nail on the head. All I can...”

Written on: 03/02/2008 by pathdoc (1 review written)

napoletani99 has hit the nail on the head. All I can add is to confirm that the new (post 2005) A-class corners like a go-cart with the added benefit of it being almost impossible to lose traction due to the traction control which comes as standard, which for those who don't know that is a good thing :o) It's because the wheel-base to car-length ratio is nearly 1.

The easy vario option is great, I'm about 5 foot 10" and I can lie down (diagonally) in the back without taking any seats out - which… Read Full Review

“Outstanding value for the right to be a Mercedes owner...”

Written on: 12/06/2006 by napoletani99 (1 review written)

Outstanding value for the right to be a Mercedes owner and enjoy the style, great economy, smooth ride and performance of this A Class A 160 CDI. It is just the right size for a small family commuting in a city, as well as making extended road trips. Other 2006 diesel 5-door models I considered prior to purchasing the A160 CDI were: Toyota Yaris, VW Polo, Renault Clio, Citroen C3, Honda Civic and RAV4. The Civic and RAV4 were too expensive, though, like the Mercedes, were much more car than… Read Full Review

Excellent review. Did you re-chip the on-board computer to that of an A 200 CDI? What were the benefits and/or problems? Thanks for your help on this.
