Used Mercedes A-Class for sale

The Mercedes A-Class is the most popular premium hatchback available today – which is no mean feat in a hugely competitive class that includes the BMW 1 Series and Audi A3. It may be Mercedes’ entry-level model but many of the A-Class’s features are anything but. One of the most tech-heavy cars in any segment with immense badge appeal to boot, it’s no wonder that the A-Class is not only Mercedes’ best-selling model but also one of the top-selling cars in the UK last year.

At Jardine Motors, you’ll find a huge range of used Mercedes A-Class models from which to choose, with options ranging from lower-priced third generation (2012-2018) Mercedes A-Class used cars to notable savings on nearly new models. Browse our full online range above, or visit your nearest Jardine Motors Mercedes-Benz dealerships today.

A bit about the Mercedes A-Class

The Mercedes A-Class has come a long way in its 25-year history. Originally released as an MPV-style five-door hatchback in 1997, the A-Class initially sported a boxy, people-carrier look that’s a far cry from the sleek, sporty design of today’s models. The A-Class retained that boxier aesthetic through its first two generations of production until the release of the Mk3 model in 2012.

The reimagination of the A-Class into a sharply styled yet elegant premium hatchback has created one of the nation’s favourite vehicles of the last 10 years. A standout choice for buyers looking for an affordable high-end hatchback with largely unrivalled badge appeal, the A-Class’s emphasis on style and technology has seen it outpace similar rivals from the likes of BMW, Audi and Volkswagen to become the fourth best-selling car in the UK in 2021.

The A-Class remains the smallest model in the current Mercedes range – but arguably also the most important one to the brand. With the latest generation (2018-onwards) A-Class driving home the model’s tech-heavy credentials, it remains a hugely desirable choice for some time in both the new and second-hand markets.

Why buy a used Mercedes A-Class?

As a best-seller, a used Mercedes A-Class represents a solid investment from a value-retention standpoint, but most buyers won’t be acquiring one with a future sale in mind. Instead, you’ll want to focus on the abundance of technology – with the latest generation A-Class models boasting an infotainment and navigation system that is not only class-leading but generally one of the best out there – the exceptional exterior and interior styling and, of course, the prestige that comes with the three-pointed star emblazoned on the front grille.

There is extremely stiff competition for the A-Class in the premium hatchback segment in the form of the BMW 1 Series, Audi A3 and Volkswagen Golf. For buyers who value kerb appeal, comfort and features above all else, an approved used A-Class stands above the rest.

Which used Mercedes A-Class should I buy?

Since the release of the A-Class, trim levels have stayed largely the same, with a few differences in iterations between the third- and fourth-generation models. Additionally, to the various trim options, there are several engine choices available as well as the performance editions of the A-Class – the Mercedes-AMG A-Class A35 and A45.

That means that there are plenty of potential combinations to consider among our used Mercedes A-Class offers, but here are four of the most noteworthy model choices out there:

  • Used Mercedes A-Class SE: The original entry-level trim for the A-Class, the SE trim – which is available on third-generation and earlier fourth-generation models – includes 16” alloy wheels, a 7” tablet-style central media display, a map pilot navigation system and several driver-safety assists among a variety of other features.
  • Used Mercedes A-Class Sport: Originally the mid-level trim for the A-Class but the entry-level option in the current A-Class catalogue, the Sport trim incorporates 17” alloys as well as LED high-performance headlamps and thermotronic luxury automatic climate control. The most recent mid-level trim for the A-Class, Sport Executive, features 18” inch alloy wheels, a parking package and a 10.25” touchscreen media display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
  • Used Mercedes A-Class AMG Line: The top-line trim for the A-Class family, the AMG Line trim incorporates a number of AMG cosmetic touches, headlined by 18” AMG alloys. There are two further editions of the AMG Line in the modern A-Class line-up – the AMG Line Premium Edition (which includes ambient lighting and ‘Keyless-Go’ technology) and the AMG Line Premium Plus Edition (which includes multibeam LED headlamps with adaptive high-beam assist and a panoramic glass sunroof).
  • Used Mercedes-AMG A-Class: Moving away from trim levels, the Mercedes-AMG A-Class represents the entry point into Mercedes performance motoring range, with two tuned-up models – the 300bhp+ A35 and the 400bhp+ A45. Both run on a 2.0 litre, four-cylinder engine with all-wheel drive – making them two of the highest-performance hot hatches on the market.
