Mercedes A-Class Kenya: Reviews, Price, Specifications, Import

The Mercedes Benz A-Class is a luxury subcompact that has been in production for four generations since 1997. In the first two generations that lasted from 1997 to 2013, it was a tall, boxy car that many people compared to a delivery van. This changed in 2013 when Mercedes redesigned it entirely and came up with a masterpiece that is now firmly on top of its class.

This is where the A-Class stands out. Far from the van-like looks of its predecessors, the new design is sporty and sophisticated. It has a long bonnet which makes it look big and the LED headlights with daytime running lights add a touch of class.

Mercedes A-Class Reliability

When it comes to Mercedes Benz, proper maintenance is critical to its long term reliability and longevity. If well maintained, the A-Class can run for years without problems but if you skimp on maintenance, things can get nasty. The A-Class is an advanced car with lots of electronics and sensors that control pretty much everything from simple tasks such as turning on wipers to complex tasks such as monitoring lane activity and blind spots. If something goes wrong with these sensors and this usually happens if the car is poorly maintained, the consequences can be serious and costly.
