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.

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 pulls strongly enough at low revs, although you do need to work it quite hard to get the very best from it. Shame it isn't a bit quieter.
