Classy, comfortable, good to drive and packed with technology, the A-Class stands among the best premium-badged options in the family car class.

This is the entry-level model, but still comes with plenty of standard equipment. The list includes 17in alloy wheels, climate control, heated front seats, LED headlights, wireless phone-charging, parking sensors all round and a reversing camera.

The entry-level engine isn’t a bad choice if you’re sticking around town and don’t plan to use it often on motorways. If you do, it needs to be worked pretty hard to get up to speed and there’s some vibration through the steering wheel once you get there. If you can, we’d suggest upgrading to the A200.
