Review

The B Class is plush, comfortable, relatively refined 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, with the entry-level B180 petrol in Sport trim and add an option pack or two.

Trim: AMG Line

Range-topping AMG Line trim adds mainly styling fripperies so we wouldn’t bother spending the extra. If you are buying, though, it’s worth adding the Executive or Premium pack – or both if you’re feeling flush.

Engine: B220d

With 40bhp more than the B200d, the B220d ultimately feels quite a bit nippier and is capable of accelerating from 0-62mph in 7.2sec. However, unless you live in Germany and commute on a derestricted autobahn, we doubt most B Class buyers will see the benefit of this extra acceleration performance – let’s face it, this isn’t a sporty car.
