Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2008's identity crisis is partly solved, but as this is a mild update rather than ground-up rebuild, it was never going to be the CX-3 killer product planners dream about. With the new engine and transmission, though, the range is more appealing and easier to make sense of.
It retains what made the car so original at launch, with the polarising i-Cockpit, clever-on-a-budget interior detailing and, as it turns out, it's a tough customer loved by rural folk.
All of this won't rocket the Frenchie to market leadership, but it puts it in the mix where it was previously too confusing an idea for many buyers.

Pros
New engine and trans combo
Interior still cool
CarPlay across the range

Cons
Tight rear seats
Grumbly engine at low revs
Some cheap plastics

Previously overlooked small SUV gets a dose of credible performance from its new drivetrain.One of the legacy products from PSA (Peugeot and Citroen), the 2008 has been hamstrung since its local launch in 2013 by a poor selection of drivetrains. That is now resolved with the introduction of a facelifted model powered by the sparkling 1.2-litre turbo three-cylinder, driving through a six-speed automatic transmission. A reversing camera and new connectivity technology further enhance the 2008 package, all for no more than $1000 extra at entry level.
In the 2008 the new engine is quieter still than it was in the light hatch. The engine rarely made its presence felt in the SUV unless it was under load, accelerating up hill, for instance – when its distinctive three-cylinder warble could be clearly heard.

The new-look 2017 Peugeot 2008 has arrived,with the more muscled looking mini SUV axing its diesel engine offering and adding new safety and technology equipment.
The new model range is a petrol only affair, with the brand’s 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbo engine and six-speed automatic transmission aimed at appealing squarely at the majority of front-wheel-drive SUV buyers.
Styling wise, the revised 2008 sees the adoption of the brand’s family look, with a more pronounced grille, more angular bumper and revised headlights and tail-lights. The GT-Line model stands out from the other models with extra body cladding, black exterior highlights and more.

The A-class sedan may be the smallest Mercedes-Benz sold in the United States, but it boasts high-tech features and a roomy cabin—more interior passenger space, in fact, than the longer the longer Mercedes-Benz CLA-class. The A-class also has subtle exterior styling that nicely incorporates Mercedes-Benz's new front-end design and focuses on aerodynamic efficiency. Unfortunately, its quest to maximize cabin space and the resulting stubby proportions compromise the overall aesthetic.

Pros
Roomy cabin,
overachieving powertrain,
sporty chassis.

Cons
Bland exterior styling,
ergonomics need work,
signature technology still in beta.

Mercedes takes a second aim at an entry-level sedan with the A-Class, and this time hits closer to the mark.

Pros
Roomy interior for the size
Value pricing
Lots of safety tech
Cutting-edge control interface
Conservative good looks

Cons
Front-drive Mercedes still seems wrong
Safety adds significantly to cost
Just one model and powertrain

The A-Class is an all-new model.Part of the first A-Class generation (for the U.S.) introduced for 2019.In golfing terms, you could say the new 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class is a mulligan. Mercedes' previous entry-level sedan, the CLA, was a hook into the rough because of its middling driving experience, mediocre comfort and uninspiring build quality.

Pros
Excellent blend of comfort and performance
Classy interior design and high-quality cabin
MBUX infotainment system works great

Cons
Noticeable amount of wind noise
Some advanced safety features are oversensitive
