Review

Some rivals are better to drive, but the Mercedes CLA is a classy, safe and stylish choice that comes packed with technology.

get the best price

We’d avoid the expensive Premium Plus trim level, not least because its standard panoramic sunroof markedly reduces head room

Another 2.0-litre petrol, this time with 221bhp. It’s more refined than the 180 and 200 and needs fewer revs to get going. As long as you’re not expecting anything too spicy, it’s a great choice.
