Although on paper the CLA Shooting Brake has a pretty big boot, a high load lip and narrow aperture hurt its practicality. But although we could point out a Superb Estate is far bigger for the money, the CLA’s attractive interior, strong engines and decent driving experience hold plenty of appeal.

At the top of the CLA tree is the bonkers-fast AMG A45 with its 4.0sec 0-62mph time.
