The Interior Mercedes-Benz A-Class 130

The Standard kit is reasonable, with climate control, a reversing camera and Bluetooth all included.

Build quality in the cabin is the first-rate, but some of the plastics do feel rather hard, especially those for the window switches and infotainment controls, although a bank of metal buttons below the multimedia controls gives a slightly classier feel.

Secondly, the rear legroom is tighter, too, while the small windows and black materials used throughout the cabin make it feel claustrophobic.

There’s plenty of seat and wheel adjustment to help you get comfortable, and while the view out the back is restricted by the small windows and thick C-pillars, a reversing camera is included on most models as standard.

My last take on this Ugandan Car

To sum it up,if you are looking for the feel of a Mercedes in practical hatchback body shape then the A-Class delivers thanks to its smart looks and stylish interior. Its diesel engines are cheap to run and the car is easy to drive.

This car is also safe and offered with durable equipment.
