Alternatives

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

The Audi A3 is one of our very favourite family cars. It has a range of punchy yet economical engines, a high-quality interior and an excellent infotainment system, but 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 surprisingly cheap to run. It’s not the roomiest family car, but it’s good to drive and comes with a class-leading infotainment system.

Overview

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
