Check out real-world situations relating to the Mercedes-Benz A 250 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Mercedes-Benz three year free GPS updates

    Good for you and thanks for the news. I agree updates should be free, even if car makers argue they have to pay for the data and uploading.

  • Which hatch for retirement?

    The Golf is great but questionable beyond the warranty, which rules it out for you. The A3 is a Golf under the skin, so that makes the Mazda3 the safe choice but you should also crunch the numbers on an A-Class and test drive to see if it makes you feel more special than the Mazda for your retirement.

  • Luxury replacement for a Mazda 3

    Your choices both get The Tick, but the Benz A250 might be too sporty for a retirement car and the A3 is an upscale Volkswagen Golf. A good mate has just bought an Accord Euro and, even though it goes out of production soon, he loves it. You should test-drive all three.
