The B-Class is smart inside, comfortable and really practical. If you’re looking for a genuine SUV alternative and you don’t need seven seats, it’s well worth a look.

Range-topping AMG Line trim adds mainly styling fripperies over Sport Executive so we wouldn’t bother spending the extra. However, it does give you access to the Premium and Premium Plus packages, which bring some serious luxuries.

Performance is adequate rather than scintillating, but even with bums on all five seats and a bootful of baggage, there’s enough oomph to just up hills without thrashing the engine. That’s a good thing because, when you do rev the engine harder, it doesn’t sound particularly pleasant.
