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

get the best price

Trim: AMG Line

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.

Engine: GLA 250 4Matic

Four-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox as standard, the 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol GLA 250 is expensive and not as fun as you might hope given the promising, hot hatch-like claimed performance figures. It sounds a bit coarse, and doesn’t feel as fast or as encouraging as some might expect.
