My QQ is due to be changed in abouit a year & as the +2 is no longer an option (for boot space not seats) am considering alternatives. My 1st thought was the X Trail but currently the lack of engine choice puts me off. I went back to cars I had considered last time such as the Ford C Max and the Merc B Class, still good alternatives for my needs but I have recently come across 2 others, the new Jeep Renegade but I think the boot will be titchy< & the Merc GLA. I think both these are meant as Juke competitors although the GLA does cross into QQ territory has a boot 51 litres bigger than the current QQ. 2 specs, Sport & AMG line & the only two thing I wouldnt have compared to the current QQ are glass roof (no biggy as I've rarely used it on the QQs I've had & wouldnt order it if a went QQ again) and sat nav, again no biggy but the the car is wired up for an optional plug in module should I want it but I have a Tom tom & also offline nav on my phone which works as well as my current connect does.
Still a year  to go as I say & Nissan may pull their finger out with the choice of X Trail engines which would put that top of my list again, we will wait & see.

Yeah I think so, its based on the Merc A class so I thought it would be small but compared to the QQ but comparing dimensions its more or less the same, in fact slightly longer than the QQ.

That's just appeared on the Motability list along with the Renegade - I agree that the Jeep is too small but looking at the GLA it might be a goer - and the prices don't seem too bad for a Merc.

I'll take a look on my way home from work tomorrow.

My thoughts entirelyThumbs Up. Didnt have time to actually go into dealer the other day but had a quick look round the outside of one in the compound, very impressed so far. Be intresting to see how realistic the quoted mpg (63mpg for a 2.1L deisel) are.

The original A class was a joke.  Looked rubbish and was too narrow/high, so much so that some testers flipped it at corners.

The second generation one is Cool.
