Review

Classy, good to drive and packed with technology, the Mercedes A Class stands among the best premium-badged options in the family car class. Although the entry-level diesel (A180d) makes the most sense for the majority of A Class buyers, don't discount the A200 petrol and the more powerful A250 petrol. Range-topping AMG Line is tempting, but we'd stick with cheaper Sport trim and spend a few quid on options, instead.

Trim: AMG Line

Range-topping AMG Line is tempting, but pushes the price into the territory of larger cars such as the Audi A4. For that reason, we’d stick with Sport trim and add the Executive package – and the Premium package if possible as well.

Engine: A180

This 1.3-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine produces a relatively modest 134bhp. However, it rarely feels out of its depth, even if you do need to work it quite hard to get the best from it. More of a problem is how coarse it sounds when you do.
