Review

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

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

Like the 180, this is a 1.3-litre turbocharged petrol engine but here with 161bhp. Performance isn’t bad at all, but you have to work it hard to get that pace, revealing a coarse engine note.
