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 more powerful A200 petrol or the A250e hybrid. Range-topping AMG Line is tempting, but we'd stick with cheaper Sport trim and spend a few quid on options instead.

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: A200d

This is the same engine as the A220d, but here producing 148bhp. It's a really well-rounded engine, with a good power delivery throughout the rev range, reasonably smooth and decent real-world economy – we managed 52.3mpg in mixed running. The eight-speed automatic gearbox can be quite jerky at slow speeds, though – more so than the seven-speed auto in the A180d.
