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: Sport

Mid-rung Sport is our favourite trim. Over and above SE trim, you get more attractive 17in alloy wheels, more powerful LED headlights, dual-zone climate control and various styling enhancements. Consider adding the Executive package and, if you're feeling flush, the Premium package, too.

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.
