Introduction

What Car? says...

Here’s a conundrum for you: what has huge presence but is relatively small, and prolific yet far from banal? Okay, this is the Mercedes A-Class review, so it’s a good shout that we’re referring to the smallest car with a three-pointed star. And before anyone writes in to tell us that the Smart Fortwo EQ is the smallest Mercedes of all, technically you’re right, but it doesn’t wear that famous badge.

Few would argue that the A-Class doesn't cut more of a dash on the road than many other family cars, from the Ford Focus to the Skoda Octavia. And despite selling in inordinately big numbers, the A-Class retains its lofty air of prestige panache that makes so many potential buyers think: “I want one.”
