In the event you scroll all the way in which down within the on-line configurator of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, you’ll find my final check object. I requested the 220 d with everlasting all-wheel drive and 7-speed double clutch for the rendezvous.
The Stuttgart firm is asking out 37,500 euros for probably the most highly effective diesel with 4MATIC in Germany. Quite a lot of coal. We’re nonetheless speaking a couple of Golf-class automobile, thoughts you. And you may think about that my check automotive with its extras goes a step additional.
Navigation system, leather-based, AMG bundle (+ € 2,934), LED headlights (€ +1,098) and plenty of different choices drive the value to a hefty € 49,171. However let’s briefly set the value apart and deal with the smallest Benz with out prejudice.
What satisfied me after a two-week check? Let’s begin with the LED headlights. They illuminate the road completely homogeneously, pleasantly broad and much. For my part, they outdo even the just lately examined matrix LED headlights of the Opel Astra.
The double clutch transmission was additionally convincing. It shifts its seven gears exactly up and down. Most likely one of many the reason why the check consumption didn’t need to exceed 6.5 liters. The engine, nevertheless, was unnecessarily loud
The passage of the 177 hp diesel engine is more likely to look fuller. As well as the intrusive nailing. The 250 petrol engine within the 2015 CLA Capturing Brake was clearly the higher alternative. The four-wheel drive helps grip with out finish.
Talking of CLA: The chassis of the A-Class doesn’t appear to be designed fairly as arduous. For individuals who need it variable, the facelift is now additionally an adaptive chassis – for an additional € 1,302. Nevertheless, this was simply as little put in within the check automotive as a keyless go system (690 euros surcharge).
whereas the house obtainable within the first row and within the trunk (341-1,157 l) is completely superb, passengers within the second row need to squeeze themselves right into a cruel tightness. Because of the design, the overview is just not the very best. The ‘rear view digicam’ possibility subsequently seems as a wise further.
Conclusion: The smallest of all Benz drives completely. All-wheel drive, computerized, chassis, the whole lot nice. The Stuttgart-based firm has some good alternate options to the uncultivated diesel. The checklist of surcharges scares once more. I might have an interest within the take fee for the person choices – for bought, not leased autos.
