Mercedes-Benz A-Class Hatchback A180d Auto

Manufacturer price from:£26,025
What Car? Target Price:£23,699

This 114bhp diesel isn’t flat-out quick (0-62mph takes 10.5sec) but neither is it frustratingly languid and it's more than capable enough for relaxing town or motorway commutes. Unlike some diesel engines, it delivers its power progressively rather than in one big rush as the turbocharger kicks in. By diesel standards, it's relatively smooth and quiet, too.
