RITS LOVE AN A-Class. Last year 43,000 of them found homes in the UK, continuing a pattern going back several years. Naturally some of those earlier buyers will be looking to replace their A-Class soon, and the new, significantly more upmarket A-Class would be an obvious place to start. You’d of course look at a VW Golf too, it being the eternal benchmark for classy hatches. And what else would you look at? How about a Volvo XC40?
