Small luxury cars are big, big business, and no other company has captured the market quite as well as Mercedes-Benz.
The German company formerly had a limited footprint in compact car classes, but now there are numerous Benz variants available, including the most affordable, the A-Class, then there’s the more practical B-Class, and Benz has recently added the new CLA-Class Shooting Brake small wagon.
So, we thought to ourselves, why not try and figure out which is the best buy.
Rather than go for the boring base models, we’ve chosen sporty one – the A250, the B250 Sport 4Matic, and the CLA250 Shooting Brake Sport 4Matic. Given that we took the CLA wagon we thought we’d leave out the Coupe (really it’s a sedan!) and while we asked for GLA250 to complete the Benz small hatch set, there wasn’t one available.
