Review

Point-to-point, the CLA 35 AMG is a seriously quick car, yet it isn't especially exciting to drive. It also generates quite a lot of road noise on the motorway, so it’s not the most refined cruiser.

The CLA range opens with AMG Line, which gives you 18in alloy wheels, a sporty body kit, LED headlights, a 7.0in digital instrument cluster, a 10.3in infotainment screen with DAB radio and sat nav, heated front seats and wireless charging.

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.
