Big Motoring World Reviews Mercedes A-Class Facelift


The Mercedes A Class has had a facelift to bring it in line with the rest of the Mercedes range classification. As the Mercedes has always been a handsome car, so Big Motoring World reviews the latest model.

New Features

Mercedes claim there’s an extra £1,100-worth of technology, but the price of the car is only £350 more than the previous model. Additionally to the tech, there is also a new feel around the cabin.
The well-finished interior is comfortable and has more of a firm style across the model. New features in the standard model include a fresh media Interface, 16-inch alloys, a reversing camera, Artico upholstery and other items to make them feel premium.


Running costs should be impressive, though, as even the automatic-only A220 d sits in Band B for VED, amounting to £20 a year. It’s a 2.1-litre 4cyl turbodiesel engine which produces 175bhp and 350Nm torque. It goes from 0-62mph in 7.2 seconds, with a top speed of 140mph. The optional ‘Comfort mode’ enables an even better drive in soaking up road imperfections, so it feels like a smooth surface before other occupants even notice.


Whilst in appears similar visually to the former model, this refined A Class includes some important tweaks. Perhaps the biggest news is the option of adaptive damping for the first time – plus the fitment of Dynamic Select variable drive modes across the majority of the range. Starting at just over £28,000, the A220 d is a similar price to its competitors but feels much more high-quality.
