Parkers overall rating: 2.5 out of 5 2.5

Better than most of its ilk, it scored a four star Euro NCAP rating in 2002. Has airbags all round, pre-tensioned and force-limiting front seat belts, ABS and ESP (Electronic Stability Programme). Security is taken care of with an immobiliser, remote locking and alarm. Fit a tracker system for extra protection as Mercedes won't fit deadlocks claiming they hamper rescue in the event of an accident.

There's a large and easy-to-load boot, with 60/40 split-folding seats. It's also fitted with plenty of little cubbies for odds-and-ends, and cupholders for four.
