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.

get the best price

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:

A180d

This 114bhp diesel isn’t flat-out quick (0-62mph takes 10.5sec) but neither is it frustratingly languid and it's more than capable enough for relaxing town or motorway commutes. Unlike some diesel engines, it delivers its power progressively rather than in one big rush as the turbocharger kicks in. By diesel standards, it's relatively smooth and quiet, too.
