Which all-weather tyres should I fit to my Mercedes-Benz A-Class?

I have a Mercedes A180 CDI. I am considering replacing the tyres, size 195/55 R16. What would you recommend as an all-purpose, all-weather tyre? I have always been drawn to Michelin.

For mud and snow and all year round use, Goodyear Vector 4 Seasons. They were brilliant on a Peugeot 2008 as part of the 'Grip Control' package, enabling it to drive straight up a 1-in-3 snow covered ski slope.

Much better execution of original A-Class concept. Feels far higher quality, especially inside. Easy to park.
