Review

Classy, comfortable and well equipped, the Mercedes GLA is one of the better prestige family SUVs, but some rivals are cheaper and more practical.

Even though this is the cheapest trim, you still get 18in alloy wheels, keyless entry and start, climate control, heated front seats and a 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system with sat-nav and a DAB radio.

While we've yet to try it in the GLA, the 200d is impressive in the A-Class so we suspect it will turn out to be the best diesel option.
