The Mercedes GLA looks good – both inside and out – but rivals are better to drive and cheaper to buy and own

This brings mostly style additions to Sport trim, including a more aggressive AMG bodykit, figure-hugging sports seats, 19in alloys and contrast stitching in the interior. It commands a high price that’s hard to justify, though.

This 2.1-litre diesel engine isn’t going to raise your pulse, but it’s responsive enough in normal driving. And while it’s quite coarse-sounding under acceleration, it does at least quieten down at a steady cruise. It’s also the most economical engine in the GLA line-up. Front-wheel drive and a six-speed manual gearbox are standard, but you can have this engine with a seven-speed automatic 'box and four-wheel drive.
