The Mercedes-Benz A-Class is a prestigious and popular hatchback car. Since its launch in 1997, it has experienced some impressive design improvements. Since 2018, the A-Class has been available as a hatchback and sedan, so there is even more choice when considering trim levels. Both the A-Class hatchback and saloon have been widely praised for their design and technology-rich offering.
The A-Class is sometimes referred to by fans as the ‘Baby Benz’, although Mercedes have been known to use this moniker for their first compact executive car, the Mercedes 190.
Practicality and style of the car
The high-end hatchback and small saloon market has some impressive contenders, and the A-Class arguably leads the way. Its stunningly designed interior provides occupants with all the creature comforts they may need while the driver has access to all the functional technology at the tip of their fingers.
The exterior offers a perfect balance of aerodynamics, sleek stylish curves, and a touch of sporty aggression, all wrapped together with the level of refinement, grace and distinction that would be expected from this well-established premium brand.
With Mercedes-Benz synonymous with luxury and opulence, you might expect the A-Class to carry a hefty price tag. However, an A-Class is available for a surprisingly low price compared with other cars of its size – and if you are looking to buy used, then there is plenty of opportunity to own a truly impressive car.
German premium car brands have been long known for their high build quality and excellent engineering, but this mantle has slowly been taken up by their competitors from the east. That said, Mercedes-Benz, along with its German counterparts, continue to innovate and manufacture cars that have a reputation for being reliable.
How a used Mercedes-Benz A-Class drives
As you will see in the table below, the A-Class has been produced with over 11 engines, each bringing its own character to the A-Class. Each model offers a unique performance, so whether you’re opting for a standard model or going for the sports-tuned AMG, the performance of the A-Class won’t disappoint.
The most popular engine is currently the A180d, a 1.5-litre engine that provides the car with 116hp. Although not the most powerful of engines, the size and weight of the car means it is ideal for zipping around town, but carries enough power to give it a lively feel.
The turbocharged options provide an additional 20hp to the 1.4-litre engine or a further 47hp. For drivers that want to go all in on performance, the renowned team in the AMG division have created a two-litre turbocharged engine that produces 224hp or 306hp and reaches 0-62mph in 4.7 seconds – a very quick hatchback indeed!
The A-Class is available in a variety of engine sizes and fuel options. Unsurprisingly, as with many newer models, the A-Class is available as a fuel-efficient, environmentally conscious plug-in hybrid. When it comes to petrol, the A-Class models have a fuel economy of between 33mpg and 55mpg. The entry-level model is the A160, with the powerful AMG A45 at the other end of the scale. For diesel A-Class cars, the range is between 52mpg and 80mpg. Below is a breakdown of the official Mercedes-Benz fuel efficiency numbers by each model, available from 2005 to 2020 and beyond.

Trims available on the Mercedes-Benz A-Class
The A-Class is available in petrol, diesel or as a plug-in hybrid – all the fuel types you have come to expect from a modern premium car manufacturer. The A-Class comes in a wide range of trim levels, offering a variety of options that meet and exceed the expectations of most buyers:
The SE is the entry-level trim level of the A-Class. However, that doesn’t mean that it is a barebones option, far from it. Although not as opulent as some of the higher trim levels, the A-Class SE comes equipped with a level of functional technology that you would expect from the premium Mercedes-Benz brand. With 16-inch alloy wheels and an iconic diamond radiator grille, even the SE oozes curb appeal. The 7-inch media display provides access to the map pilot navigation system, along with reversing camera with dynamic guide and media access with mp3 connectivity. This is complete with a leather multifunction steering wheel and air conditioning.
With the larger 17-inch alloy wheels that come with the Sport, the step up from the SE is immediately noticeable. The additional rain-sensing windscreen wipers provide the driver with another feature that isn’t available on the SE, while the twin stainless steel tailpipes afford the car its sporty look and increased curb appeal. As with the wheels, the digital display is also larger on the Sport with the tablet-style 8-inch panel that provides the driver with access to the same functionality as the SE, as well as Mercedes’ own ‘Thermotronic’ automatic climate control. The interior is fitted with reading lights and a rear roof lining light.
The AMG, Mercedes-Benz‘ top-level trim, comes in two flavours: the AMG Line, which incorporates the AMG styling, and the full-fat AMG, which includes AMG styling and the famous AMG performance. So, beginning with the wheels, the AMG comes with 18-inch alloy wheels as well as the AMG body styling. With this being the performance division of Mercedes-Benz, the AMG badge often brings with it the sportier features.
The AMG trim available on the A-Class provides branded front calipers and perforated front brake discs that are visible through the alloy spokes. The lowered suspension, with a drop of 20mm at the front and 15mm on the rear, means AMG’s styling really helps portray the sense of performance and comfort. The AMG-specific Sports Direct-Steer system provides the driver with what Mercedes Benz describes as “far sharper handling for scintillating cornering” – so you can see why the AMG has the reputation of being a real performance choice. This carries through to the interior with sport seats, leather steering wheel with perforated grip and striking red contrasted stitching, carbon-fibre-look trim and stainless-steel sports pedals.
