Very practical and solid for a small car, but not powerful enough

Bought this car as a cheap second car in time for the arrival of baby no. 1.
On the plus side, it is a very solid and spacious little car, and the raised driving position is nice, makes getting a baby in and out easier. Avantgarde trim adds some nice touches including parallel park assist.
The car has been pretty reliable over the couple of years we've owned it.
The aircon doesn't blow cold anymore and the key died on one occasion having to be replaced. Otherwise everything works.
Its not the nicest car to drive and lacks power, certainly the A150 in any case. Best for nipping around in town rather than fast roads. Fuel economy often < 40 mpg but will do mid 40s under the right conditions.
I'd recommend if you want the cheapest slowest Mercedes there is! Its a practical choice.
