Arval's Recommended: Mercedes-Benz A Class
The A-Class hatchback is the smallest car Mercedes builds and a more compact, front-wheel drive alternative to the larger saloons and SUVs with which it’s traditionally associated. It’s existed in various guises since 1997, and the third-generation model, launched in 2012, took aim at the premium lower medium fleet market with a series of efficient diesel engines and eye-catching styling.

As you would expect from Mercedes-Benz, the interior styling is smart and well put together. Mercedes enthusiasts will notice the nods to the C Class and E Class with the centre console and triple chrome centre console the most obvious. In terms of interior space, the A Class is very generous. The headroom (front/rear) is 1,017mm/952mm and both front seats are adjustable. Shoulder room (front/rear) is a roomy 1,422mm/1,410mm, which could comfortably seat 3 people in the back.
The storage is also very good, with a boot space of 341 litres with the seats up and 1,157 litres with seats down and the parcel shelf removed. There is also some really handy additional luggage space under the boot floor, for when you need that extra bit of space.
All models of the A Class get an infotainment screen as stadard. The SE model gets a 7" screen while all other models get an 8" version. This screen is controlled using the rotary knob located in the centre console, making it easy to operate on the move. Sat NAv is optional on all expect the highest spec models, but Apple Carplay is standard on all models, so you have the option to mirror your phones sat nav to the infotainment screen.
