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.

Of course, with an extra 40bhp, the B220d ultimately feels quite a bit nippier and is capable of accelerating from 0-62mph in 7.2sec. However, as with the more powerful petrol engines, such rapid acceleration seems a bit unnecessary in a car that isn't remotely sporty.
