This car is shocking when it comes to the wet season. Dreadful when it rains. The steering wheel and pedals shake. Looks nice but I can tell you this, you will regret it! Worse I've spent £28k! Also the lane assistant is so sharp, I'm surprised there isn't a scandal about it causing any accidents. The city braking function is also dangerous because when you go past a parked car with its lights on, the car will try and stop suddenly! If you have leaves blowing in front, the car will try and stop! Also my airbag keeps telling me it's turned off now and then. The space in the car is pretty good. Interior sold me the car. Not recommended.

It's a great all-rounder. It gives excellent performance from its 160bhp, 1.3-litre engine, it's smooth and quiet on the roads and handles like a dream. Beautifully styled and functional interior which makes for a great driving experience.

Top spec car with rare full leather interior, night pack, ambient lighting pack, amg pack, storage pack, all driving assist packs, smartphone integration, premium plus etc. It drives really nicely and smoothly with plenty of punch and great handling. Brakes are costly to replace, but perform great. Alloys corroded after 3 months of ownership, annoying as these are the same alloys fitted to the A45, however Merc replacing them for free.
