There’s pretty generous leg, head and shoulder room in the front of the current Mercedes-Benz A-Class, with enough space for someone well over six feet tall to get comfortable. In the back, there’s sufficient space for a couple of average-size adults to sit behind someone of similar height.
The A-Class hatchback has 370 litres of boot space, which is a touch less than in most other mid-size hatchbacks but still enough room for half a dozen large ‘bags for life’ or a couple of big suitcases. The A-Class saloon has a slightly bigger boot with 405 litres of space, but the smaller opening makes it harder to load in big things. Note that plug-in hybrid models lose some boot space to their batteries.
Older versions of the A-Class aren’t quite as spacious or as practical. Boot space is similar but back-seat space is quite tight and the small rear-door openings aren’t especially family-friendly.
