For the longest time, the American market has not been able to get its dirty gloves on
Most Affordable Model, A Class. Finally, we received
and the swoopy faux-coupe silhouette, but the standard A never materialized. It changes in the 201
A small looker
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan in 2019, as expected, is basically a European-spec A-class hatchback without fifth door and a little tweaked standard equipment. The look is quite darn similar to the A-Class door, with triangular headlights like echoing both the A-Class and the new
. Expect more Mercs to pick up this design language in the future.
This is how it clings to today's CLA class. It's about three inches shorter, but the wheelbase is 1.1 inches longer, which means less overhang. It is about 0.3 inches higher than the CLA class, which will certainly benefit the head. In terms of width, the two are about the same, about 70 inches without counting the mirrors.
The interior does not seem to be a very high level of entry. There is a wide range of materials in use, with some fine storage between the various dashboards, and many switches found in the cabin are found on larger, more expensive Mercs. Standard equipment includes a 7-inch gauge display and a matching 7-inch infotainment display, but buyers can expand both screens to 10.25 inches, and create a hermet on a panel that stretches more than halfway across the dashboard.
Standard MBUX and Security Technology
The A Class is the first Mercedes to use the automaker's latest infotainment system. Cold MBUX, it has natural language processing that is activated by saying "Hello Mercedes." The graphics are new and improved, which is good because the current command system feels quite old.
Opt for the larger screens in the cabin and you can access even more cool features, such as magnified reality that sets the navigation direction "on" the road thanks to a front camera facing out. It also works with vehicle-to-x (V2X) communication, notify the driver if someone else is turning on the brakes or if there is an accident on the front.
The new A-Class has an important piece of standard safety equipment – automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection. If you want some semi-autonomous cruising, you need to distinguish alternatives, but a well-equipped A-Class will stay in its own lane between 37 and 125 mph, as well as changing lanes and maintaining its space in traffic.
There are a good amount of standard equipment in the 2019 A class. In addition to the aforementioned MBUX and autobrake, you get a panoramic roof, LED front lights,
climate protection with two zones, keystart and multiple vehicle modes.
Takes a bit more, and you can add 64-color surround lighting, key entry, heated and ventilated seats, a boot screen, adaptive damper, wireless charging, a Burmester premium sound system and massages.  The interior of the A-class looks better than CLA's ever-made, no matter how many alternatives are turned on.
Under the hood
Currently, the 2019 A-Class Sedan is only available in two trimmer – front-wheel drive A220 and all-wheel drive A220 4Matic, the biggest difference between the two is the number of driven wheels.
Both variants receive the same engine – a 2.0 liter gas I4 that sets 188 horsepower and 221 pound-foot torque. A seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox is the only friend of the engine, whether it's FWD or AWD. It is electronically limited to 130 km / h, if you feel offense.
Mercedes-Benz A-Class Since 2019 is sold in the US by the end of 2018. The price is not yet announced, but these details should bubble up to the surface just before the car hits dealers.
