We recently brought you details of the significantly upgraded 2015 Mercedes A-Class. It comes with revised engines and a new look – for full details, click here.

It will be heading to customers in September, but if you can’t wait until then there are some good discounts available online for the outgoing model in our recommended specification.

We’ve previously said the A-Class is hard to recommend over its rivals, but this discount makes it a more tempting prospect for buyers.

For

The 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine produces 121bhp and is smooth flexible and, paired with this manual gearbox in SE trim, is our pick of the range. It’s a stylish car inside and out, and its resale values are strong, too.

Against

The A-Class crashes over bumps and doesn’t ride well on roads that aren’t perfectly smooth, even with the Comfort suspension setting, and the boot space isn’t as generous as rivals such as the Volkswagen Golf.

Should I add any options?

The A-Class comes with generous standard equipment, including alloy wheels, Bluetooth and air-con.

A reversing camera costs an additional Β£300, and you’ll pay the same for heated front seats. If you’re after some extra safety features, rear side airbags will set you back Β£390.
