Now the Mercedes-Benz A-Class has begun a new as a VW Golf-sized hatch, Mercedes be hoping for the car to become a more sight in company car parks. are five trim levels and here we’ve driven the SE towards the lower end of the range to see how it up.

The A180 SE sits between the basic A180 and the slightly Sport trim that previously tested on the A200. the base model it gains seats, some chrome and a set of 16-inch alloy wheels than the standard A180’s plastic hubcaps. Compared the Sport trim it gets wheels, a slightly plainer and a shorter list of standard

Inside it’s a pleasant place to be. The SE’s trim as smart as that of A-Class further up the scale, but the cabin is laid out and feels solidly put The tall dashboard is covered in a ‘matrix’ finish, which is a more low-key than the carbonfibre plastered across the in the AMG Sport versions, and it shows off the eye-catching chrome air vents to effect.

A tablet-shaped 5.8-inch display perched on top of the dashboard is standard-fit and care of music, the Bluetooth system (which comes as and the Becker Map Pilot navigation which is a £770 cost Height-adjustable sports seats are fit and feel nicely supportive. Our car had heated front seats, a option.

There’s enough for average-height adults to sit comfortably in the and the rear passenger centre includes a 12V socket. Although the curved roofline doesn’t too much on rear space, the rear screen with pillars does make the a little awkward when or checking blind spots.

Our car was powered by the 1.6-litre petrol with the seven-speed automatic (a six-speed manual ’box is available). Performance is respectable for a car of type, with a 0-62mph of 9.1 seconds and a 126mph top speed.

The auto transmission sometimes a little slow to make its up on the way out of junctions and roundabouts, hesitating deciding upon a gear, but the shifts arrive they smooth and efficient.

On the road, the SE feels competent if a little to drive. Our test car was running on tyres and as the test was on a mild temperatures were a little than suitable for them didn’t show off the A-Class’s to best effect. As a result the car slightly wallowy and blunt-feeling on roads. SE models are fitted the compliant ‘Comfort’ suspension – higher-level trims are available a far firmer ‘Sports’ arrangement, does sharpen up the handling a but makes bumpy roads of an endurance test for the driver.

The automatic returns a 52mpg and has CO2 emissions of 127g/km, which is so slightly more efficient the manual version by 1g/km. For car drivers, that places the car in the 16% BIK Normal on-the-road price for the A180 SE Automatic tested is £21,575 (well over more than the manual which means a P11d of £21,545. As a 20% tax payer you would pay £65 a and as a 40% tax payer £129 a month.

Our car, which had several options including the navigation DAB radio and lane-keeping assist, was £26,290 on-the-road. For a lower value and more manageable costs it pays, as always, to the options list sparingly.

The A180 SE company car drivers really go for, however, is the 1.5-litre diesel version. achieves an average of 73mpg and an CO2 emissions figure of 98g/km, qualifies the car for the 13% BIK band and has a P11d of £21,170, meaning £53 a month and a month for 20% and 40% tax payers respectively.
