I bought a Mercedes a180 second hand last may, from the dealership it was a 2015 plate, this year I have required about part exchanging it for something else and have learnt that my 2015 registered a class is actually a spec back from 2013 and basically has the same valuation of a 2013 car. Would this have been something that the dealership should have informed me when buying the vehicle? I can’t seem to get over the fact that my 2015 car is valued the same as a car 2 years older?!

Hi Joanne. It’s perfectly normal for a model to maintain its specification for a number of years, but its value will depend on age (from date of first registration), mileage, condition, etc.
Unless there is a particular difference between your 2013-spec A-Class and an equivalent 2015-spec A-Class (and there’s nothing significantly different about the model itself), then a 2015 version will be worth more than a 2013 version.
