New Mercedes A-Class or Scirocco?

New Mercedes A-Class or Scirocco?

Postby andrej » Thu Mar 29, 2012 11:17 am

I'm dreaming about owning a Scirocco already about 2 years and I'm planning to buy one finally the next year. However, I have seen the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class that was revealed on the Geneva motor show and I'm now not sure if I shouldn't buy the new A-class rather than a Scirocco. The price will be almost the same and Mercedes is a Mercedes. I also like its interior more than the Scirocco's interior. However, as for the exterior, I'm not sure.

Here are some images of the new Mercedes A:

If you were to buy a Scirocco the next year, would you still buy it or would you prefer the new Mercedes A-class? If you would still buy a Scirocco, I'd like to know why. Tell me why Scirocco would be a better choice (if it would).

I personaly would go for the Merc now. Simply because I need the 5 doors and possible boot. But if I didn't have my little man I'd go for the Scirocco hands down every time. The Roc' will still be rare compaired to the large numbers of lesser A classes. Plus the Roc' build quailty will prob be better and you won't get fobbed off by the dealer with all the horror stories people keep saying about merc dealers.

There's no prices for the merc yet but the first models out will be the higher end specs and thus more expensive. I don't think it'll be cheap by any means.

I guess it depends on whether you want something a bit bigger with better rear seat access all the time with the merc or something a bit more sporty in the scirocco.

In the following article they say that the starting price will be about £20,000, so that's similar to the Scirocco's price:

When I first saw the 3 door concept I hated it but they are now starting to grow on me.The interior is the same as the new B Class so for a laugh I configure a Sport version and was suprised how relativly "cheap" they were . Not that I would ever want a B class but just to get an idea of prices and standard equipment that we could see on the A.

Hmm...difficult one... the Merc looks nice, but IMO I would rather go for a Scirocco
