Mercedes-Benz A-Class Hatchback A180 CDI SE auto 5dr Data and specs

For Officially, the 1.5-litre A180CDI will average 74.3 mpg, and with a CO2 output of just 98g/km, it’s sure to win big brownie points from company car drivers.

Against The engine is distinctly clattery at tickover and at low speeds, and a good deal of vibration can be felt through the pedals. Even the comfort suspension is very firm.

What Car? says

2 out of 5 stars

The engine is not particularly cultured, but once you get it singing along it’s relatively hushed, providing decent pulling power and a fair turn of speed. CO2 and fuel economy is extremely impressive, too.
