    Hi All
    I am thinking of replacing my current 2010 W169 A Class with a 2016 1500cc diesel A class.
    I am looking for opinions or advice before I part with my money.
    I have already found out that the engine is made by Renault not sure if that is good or bad.
    I have test driven one and it seems a really nice car but I really like some advice from the experts

    Hi, we have a 2016, 200d A class. It drives well, quite nippy if needed, is comfy enough and room for two adults in the back. It returns 45mpg mostly around town journeys. Has been no trouble in the two years. Okay on long 300 mile journeys too. £20 road tax as well. Quite happy with it.
    Bit of room in the boot too.
    My only problem is that I always seem to bump my head getting in. I am not tall, 5’10 and normally (can I say that these days ???) built.
    No idea what the 1500 would be like, just less go I imagine.

    Just driving it....watching the mileage go up and up and up. Going to try and book it in for service A on the 21st. It's already 600 miles over due :shock:
