For what seemed like forever, the U.S. market wasn’t able to get its hands on the most affordable model of the Mercedes-Benz lineup. Well, now the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan, its most compact car yet, is finally available in America.
Under the hood, this A-Class Sedan is packing a 2.0-liter gas I4, putting out 180hp and 221 lb-ft of torque with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. New from the ground up, this vehicle is the first Mercedes to utilize their latest MBUX infotainment system with updated graphics and natural language voice processing, which is a noticeable step up from the previous system. Although it’s an entry-level Mercedes-Benz, the interior certainly doesn’t look like it, as it’s packed with a 7-inch gauge screen and a 7-inch infotainment screen, creating a huge tech panel stretching a little more than halfway across the dashboard. If you’re sticking to standard features, it comes with a panoramic roof, pedestrian and cyclist detection, LED headlights, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, keyless start and multiple vehicle modes. Standard for Mercedes-Benz is definitely still a few steps above the norm. The A-Class drops later this year.
