What alternatives should I consider to a used Mercedes B-Class hatchback?

The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer has enjoyable handling, a high-quality interior and comes with some frugal diesel engines. It’s well made and drives rather better than the B-Class.

The Citroen C4 Picasso has a spacious and practical interior. It also has great visibility and is good value for money used. Its interior is stylish but no match in interior quality for the Mercedes or the BMW.

The B-Class is a nicely made and well-executed car, but its rivals do all the important things better.

  • Responsive steering
  • Comfortable seats
  • Nice interior switchgear
  • Not that great to drive
  • Rear seats don’t fold fully flat
  • Can be pricey, even used
