The question is if you remain in the marketplace for an automobile such as this, which should you opt for? Well thankfully Mat's got his hands on all four and he's going to put them all to the test!
So let's take a look at how the 4 compare. Starting with the Mercedes, it's recently had a mid-life facelift, so it features a few changes compared to the initial 2018 release. There's an upgraded lower bumper, a bigger grille, and a brand-new guiding wheel on the inside. Apart from the plainly phony exhausts around the back, it looks quite wise, and the infotainment & digital dial display screen is quickly the best of the four cars and trucks here. When it pertains to rate, the range kicks off at ₤ 32,000.
Next up we have the Audi, which includes a cheaper beginning price than the Mercedes, at ₤ 27,000. When it pertains to the design it looks quite smart from the outdoors, with a substantial grille up front which is flanked by 2 sharp, well-designed headlights. There are creases around the side, and it looks fairly plain around the back. Step within and although the infotainment system is quite great, there are lots of scratchy plastics to be discovered throughout the cabin.
The BMW's next in line, and it has one thing no other vehicles here have – genuine exhaust tips on program! All-in-all the 1 Series looks quite clever on the outside, although we're not a fan of the grille in advance Thankfully though the interior quality offsets this, with high-quality materials found throughout the cabin together with a top quality infotainment system on the dash. However, the very same can't be said for the digital dials, which seem a bit standard and dark. When it pertains to price, the 1 Series starts at around ₤ 28,000.
Then finally we have the least expensive cars and truck here, with the Golf range beginning at around ₤ 26,500. On the outdoors, it's clearly a Golf, and although we really like the style around the back and side, we think the front end could be the worst-looking of the 4 automobiles here! Luckily the interior looks really clever and tidy, but these looks come at a cost, with almost all functionality coming through the infotainment screen … What's so wrong with physical buttons ?!
So can you select a winner, or are the 4 too uniformly matched? Let us know which you would choose in the comments, or remain and join Mat for this brand new group test!
