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

Trim: Sport

Adds style extras to SE’s kit list, plus automatic wipers, an 8.0in colour screen and climate control. Worth considering if you’re keen to have a high-end look and feel to your car.

Engine: GLA 200d 4Matic

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.
