Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan Feels More Upscale than Entry Level

Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan

For a long time, the market in the United States had a hard time getting its hands on the Mercedes-Benz A-Class. Eventually, we were given the CLA, and we saw the faux-coupe silhouette, but we never saw the standard A materialize. In 2019, everything changes. First, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan looks like what everyone might expect. You have a hatchback that doesn't have a fifth door, and you see tweaked equipment as the standard.

Will More Mercedes-Benz Models Follow Suit?

We can expect many of the Mercedes models in the future to follow in the direction of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class. When we look at how this car stack up to the CLA, it’s three inches lesser in length, and the wheelbase is 1.1 inches longer. In addition, this vehicle is 0.3 inches taller than what you had with the CLA, this will make more drivers happier from having the additional headroom. When we look at the width, the two come close at 70 inches wide.

Upscale Interior

Even when you look at the entry-level point for the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, it doesn't feel entry level as you might expect. You have a rich selection of premium material, and layering with the dashboard strata and the switchgear in the cabin looks larger and more expensive. It comes with a 7-inch infotainment screen and a twin 7-inch gauge screen. If you decide, you can upgrade both of the screens to 10.25 inches. This creates a behemoth panel that will stretch over the dashboard.

Why Mercedes-Benz

When we look at the future of the Mercedes-Benz and its design language, we see a bright and promising future. The automaker's latest infotainment system is known as MBUX, and some of the features it has include voice processing, which you activate when you say, "Hey Mercedes." In terms of graphics, you have a new system that has been improved, which helps keep the command system up to its finest quality.

Why the Bigger Screen?

Bigger screens in the cabin help give you access to even cooler features. For example, augmented reality will put the navigation on the road with a camera that faces forward. In addition, this car works with the latest V2X communication technology, and it will alert you if someone ahead has slammed on their brakes. This technology also checks for accidents ahead to keep you safe.

The Safety of This Technology

When you buy a Mercedes-Benz A-Class, you’ll get the standard automatic emergency braking system for cyclist and pedestrian detection. If you want to have something a little closer to the semi-autonomous cruise control, you will have to pay a little extra for the feature, but the A-Class knows how to keep in its lane and run from 37 to 125 miles per hour while doing it. Along with that, this self-driving technology can switch lanes and maintain a safe space between cars in traffic.
