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.

If you want a fast B-Class, the B250e plug-in hybrid makes more sense than the regular B250. Like the A180 and A200, it uses has a 1.3-litre petrol engine, but one that’s augmented by an electric motor that provides a healthy slug of extra pulling power. It’s very nearly as quick as the regular B250, but also offers an official all-electric range of up to 44 miles and, as we’ll explain later, the potential to save you money.
