A-Class 2019 Awards

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: 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.
