What used Mercedes GLA-Class hatchback will I get for my budget?
Just under £11,000 is the current starting point for a GLA, this for a 2014 car that has done plenty of miles. We'd suggest spending £12,000 or more for something with an average mileage for the year and a full service history, bought from an independent dealer, from 2014 or 2015. Up the dosh to between £13,000 and £15,000 and you draw in 2016 cars with the same criteria as above, while £16,000 to £20,000 will get you a 2018 or 2019 car, or for not much more one of the last 2020 cars, bought from an independent dealer.

Road tax will depend upon how much CO2 your GLA officially emits if it was registered before 1 April 2017, but you'll need to pay the current flat-rate fee for anything registered after this point. This currently stands at £150 a year. Find out more about the current road tax costs here.
Insurance costs are on the high side, with groups ranging from 21 up to 42 for AMG GLA 45. Servicing costs can be expensive, as can replacement parts. For example, if you were to pay up front for two services, it would cost you £816 or £45.33 per month over 18 months. The same number of services for an equivalent Audi Q3 will cost a mere £480 or £26.67 per month in comparison.
