I own a Honda Civic and a Maruti Swift, and am looking at getting a Mercedes A-class. My daily running is up to about 35km. I am confused about which version to get, the petrol or the diesel. I am disappointed that the diesel version doesn’t have a sunroof and certain other bits. Please suggest which one I should choose.

AAA Yes, you are right, the A-class is under-equipped for the price and segment. However, the diesel A-class is still the one we would choose as the high-end petrol is over priced, has mediocre performance and won’t fetch you a good resale value in the long run.
