I see on here that many people are still waiting for their's to be delivered ... This may explain why I've yet to see another A-Class on the road as yet.. and I have been looking v.hard!!

Has anybody else seen many around? I'm in London and still notice heads turning everywhere I drive :)..

I absolutely love it! Like you, if I'm not in it, I'm sneaking a glance out of the window to look at it!

Loving learning all the new gadgets and features.

Terrible fuel economy at the moment but to be expected when everything is brand new and tight

Are these Engineered or AMG Sports? With petrol? 17mph isn't very good. Still it may improve as you drive them? If not, I wont be going far, ha, ha.Supposed to be about 55 extra-urban, 33 urban and 44 combined for the engineered, perhaps the 18ins tyres are reducing it a bit, but 17 is a joke. Or is it the 'fast' driving?

yep it is a petrol engineered but can't say I'm being very economical at the moment. That is just around London with stop start off and in sport mode
..

plus that is just over the 245 miles covered so far & not been on a long run as yet

Aberdeen is a car park during the week at commuting times so I'll just need to be patient. But thanks for the heads up on what to expect. Just have to be the petrol station's best friend for a while.

Wonder what fuel type is recommended?

Mikel, when did you order yours? - and was it from Mercedes-Benz Chester?

I ordered an A180 Sport with Night package in January, but won't see it 'til mid May.

Just saw a South Sea Blue AMG Sport in Liverpool. Looked absolutely stunning - and I'm not usually a fan of cars in primary colors (except supercars).

I reckon the one I saw had just been picked up, as there is a MB dealer very close by and this one was gleaming - even in the horrible slush and snow.

Today, I saw a South Sea Blue A Class, absolute standard base model, no packs or options, standard 16inch alloys, halogen headlights, and it looked brilliant!


Only just over 3 weeks til I pick mine up now. Considering I was impressed with the base model with no options, I know I'll be over the moon with my Sport with night package! :)

I am driving the A200CDI and these are my results so far.

I have done some longer runs now Brussels to Amsterdam got 5.8 liter/100km
And Brussels to Luxemburg city average was 6.3 liter/100km did go up to 190 km/h in Germany.
Overal now at 6.2 liter /100 km

Sorry for the metric figures calculating time perhaps ..
