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. Unless you plan to do big miles, go with the entry-level B180 petrol in Sport or Sport Executive trim.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.
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.
