1999 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Review
Truely: A-class! (a160) — A great concept, actually. Very spacious. Everything fits inside this what first appears to be a small city cruiser. Very nice. Mercedes building quality of course, highlighted through a super braking system and a fantastic gear shift. Probably the best I've had in a car yet. The engine doesn't dissapoint either. The car is very agile. I'd even call it fast!
Pros: Spacious, Agile, Practical, Building Quality, Low MPG, Brakes
Cons: Not a Man's Sweetheart, Hard Suspension
