Read the full review here: www.carbuyer.co.uk Hi. I know lots of you have asked for a review of the new Mercedes A-Class so we thought we'd do a special extended video - it's over nine minutes! Hope you like it. We will return to the usual length videos for our next review. Until now, Mercedes hasn't offered a rival to premium hatchbacks like the BMW 1 Series, Audi A3 or VW Golf. The handsome new A-Class changes that, aiming to attract younger buyers to the brand. Featuring a much lower roofline and detailed creases on its side, the car looks much sportier. It's available with a range of engines, including a diesel that emits less than 100g/km -- the first Mercedes to do so. A hot 208bhp 2.0-litre turbo A250 is also planned. Prices are competitive with the car's A3 and 1 Series rivals.
