Review

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. The entry-level B180 petrol in Sport or Sport Executive trim is our pick, but company car users might find the plug-in hybrid B250e of interest.

get the best price

The list of standard equipment includes climate control, LED headlights, cruise control, manmade-leather seats and 17in alloys. Go for Sport Executive, though, because you'll get a bigger infotainment screen, smartphone mirroring, power-folding door mirrors and some extra parking aids.

We have yet to try this engine.
