Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Mercedes' cars have a reputation for being quite pricey, but line an A-Class up against its biggest competitors and it actually looks like rather good value. What’s more, when you compare each version like-for-like, the Merc tends to be more efficient than either the Audi or the BMW. And while you’ll find it more expensive to service, maintain and repair, the amount of money you’ll recoup when selling it on more than makes up for that. In short, you should find the A-Class is cheaper to own and run than either of its arch-rivals.
