Review

The A-Class Saloon is comfortable, with sophisticated infotainment and a very attractive interior, and company car users will find the plug-in hybrid A250e enticing. Keen drivers may find the sportier Mercedes CLA a little more rewarding, though, and the Audi A3 Saloon has the edge on quality.

We are yet to try out this variant

The diesel-powered A180d earns our recommendation with a progressive power delivery, rather than it all coming in one big surge like it does in some rivals. It’s not spectacularly quick, but performance is on par with the equivalent Audi A3 Saloon 1.6 TDI.
