Our team of second-hand car experts have deliberated over more than 750 secondhand cars, reducing that number down to just 50 of the very best used motors on the market today. Here we announce the ultimate guide to cars that buyers simply cannot miss in the 2019 DieselCar & EcoCar Used Car Top 50. As we begin counting down the top ten, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class (2012 to 2018) is in tenth position.
“Relaunched as an A3 and 1 Series rival, rather than a quirky small MPV, the A-Class’ premium style and dashing interior helped it to sell spectacularly well. That’s despite a rather firm ride in early cars, mostly rectified by retuned suspension that arrived during a mid-life facelift in the summer of 2015. A comprehensive diesel line-up includes the 1.5- and 1.8-litre A 180 d and 2.1-litre A 200 d and A 220 d with 4Matic four-wheel drive also available, and claimed fuel efficiency of over 70mpg for some powerplants.”
