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

AMG Line trim mostly focuses on making the GLA look sportier, bringing 19in AMG-branded alloy wheels, a bodykit, darkened privacy glass, sports seats, metal pedals and a three-spoke sports steering wheel. Unless you really love what it does to the car’s appearance, though, we wouldn’t bother.

This plug-in hybrid is the obvious choice for company car buyers looking for a GLA, thanks to its low CO2 emissions and impressive electric-only range of 37 miles. It’s quick and promises low fuel bills, but the transitions between petrol and electric power aren't especially smooth, and brake pedal feel is rather inconsistent.
