Review

Classy, good to drive, safe 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 most sense for the majority of A Class buyers, we really like the performance offered by the more powerful A250 petrol, and the benefit to company car drivers of the A250e hybrid. For outright comfort, though, a Volkswagen Golf is suppler, and a BMW 1 Series is more exciting in the bends.

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: A200

This 161bhp 1.3-litre turbo petrol needs to be worked quite hard to get the very best from it. Shame it isn't a bit quieter, too.
