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

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.

The mid-range option in the petrol lineup uses the same basic 1.3-litre engine as the entry-level B180 but has more power. The extra pace on offer isn’t really worth the price premium, though.
