Talking Merc Benz A160 CDI Classic SE Vs Astra

Hi,
I am new to this site.
I own a Vauxhall Astra 1.6 hatchback 99 reg (petrol) car. It's not that expensive to maintain. Having said that, I had to do an engine overhaul as the water pump died. Enough of that.
Now to the point. I have seen above mentioned car for £7000 which has done only 20k miles. It's a 2005 reg. I have heard that Benz is expensive to maintain. But having reviewed a few comments I have noticed that there is not much difference here. I may totally be wrong. This is where I need your help. If any car experts here, could you please give me some advice? I'd love to own this Merc. But I am worried that I might have surprises in terms of maintenance/repairs etc. I donít do much mileage. 5000 miles a year will be the maximum.
Sorry if I sound too ignorant!
Please kindly let me know your views.
Many Thanks in advance.
