Company car buyer

MERCEDES-BENZ A CLASS Hatchback A180 CDI Sport 5dr

The engine is not particularly cultured, but once you get it singing along it’s relatively hushed, providing decent pulling power and a fair turn of speed. CO2 and fuel economy is extremely impressive, too.

Engines

Our pick
A180d
This 114bhp diesel isn’t flat-out quick (0-62mph takes 10.5sec) but neither is it frustratingly languid and it&#39;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&#39;s relatively smooth and quiet, too.
A250
Range-topping 2.0-litre petrol packs an impressive 221bhp and can sprint to 62mph from standstill in just 6.2sec. That means it’s actually slightly faster than a VW Golf GTI.
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&#39;t a bit quieter.
