The big selling point of the latest version of the A Class is the new infotainment system. It certainly looks the part and is relatively straightforward to use as it can be controlled by touchscreen or touchpad or even voice control. Indeed, the interior in general is extremely impressive and arguably the best in its class. There is an improvement in interior space too with plenty of head and leg room for occupants. Indeed, there is also more space in the boot with 370 litres now at your disposal or even more with the seats folded flat. There is a good level of standard equipment that includes heated seats, a leather steering wheel, a reversing camera and a dual-screen infotainment system. Engine choice is limited to a 1.5 litre diesel or 1.3 litre petrol available in 109 - 163 bhp. They are all mated to a seven speed automatic gearbox which provides seamless power and torque. The suspension is also tawt, nimble and well suited to Irish roads.
