The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

You’re unlikely to have much difficulty getting comfortable behind the wheel of the A-Class Saloon. The driver’s seat adjusts manually on all trim levels (electric seats are available as part of the Premium Plus package) but supports you in all the right places. There’s plenty of steering wheel adjustment, too.

The sports seats in the range-topping AMG Line models are designed to hold you in place better through corners and have integrated head restraints. They're supremely supportive, to the extent that we didn't even miss the lack of standard lumbar support adjustment: a feature that you gain only with the electric seat option.

Visibility, parking sensors and cameras

The A-Class Saloon provides a decent view out when looking straight ahead and, thanks to its relatively thin front pillars, when dealing with junctions. The side windows are bigger than those of the Mercedes CLA, providing a better view out and allowing more light in.

A rear-view camera is standard to help with parking, but you’ll need to add the Executive Package if you want front and rear parking sensors. Every model gives you bright LED headlights.
