What alternatives should I consider to a used Mercedes-Benz A-Class hatchback?

The Audi A3 is one of our very favourite cars. It comes with a range of punchy yet economical engines, a high-quality interior with an excellent infotainment system and above all it’s great to drive.

The BMW 1 Series gives you all the equipment you could want, never mind need, and it’s also surprisingly cheap to run. It’s not the largest car inside, but it’s good to drive and comes with an excellent infotainment system.

Verdict

The Mercedes-Benz A-Class certainly looks the part, but its hard ride and disappointing refinement count against it

  • Sharp styling
  • Well finished interior
  • Frugal engines
  • Terrible ride
  • Much noisier than rivals
  • Cramped inside
