Classy, comfortable, good to drive and packed with technology, the Mercedes 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.

Our chosen engine is this more powerful version of the A180. It increases the power to 161bhp and trims down the 0-62mph sprint time to 8.2sec. As a result, it doesn’t need to be worked as hard to make good progress and is more willing when you need a sudden burst of pace.
