Mercedes-Benz's A-Class long wheelbase (LWB) has been heralded as the "Most practical car in Britain" by Auto Express magazine. In a week-long trial against 36 other cars, the A-Class was tested to see how easy it is to live with day-to-day, as well as how simple it is to change a wheel or top up the screen wash fluid. Auto Express particularly praised the car's low boot height, rear visibility and the commanding driving position.
