Mercedes-Benz A-Class to be Discontinued for 2023  
 

Mercedes-Benz has announced that the A-Class sedan will be discontinued for the U.S. market. However, the company didn't cite a specific reason for the decision. Instead, it noted that the A-Class has never been a strong seller in the U.S.

Mercedes-Benz will continue to offer the A-Class hatchback in the U.S. Still, the sedan's discontinuation means that the brand will no longer provide a small car in the American market.

The Mercedes-Benz A-Class

Mercedes-Benz has confirmed that the A-class sedan is out of the U.S. lineup, leaving the CLA as the only front-wheel drive sedan in the Mercedes-Benz portfolio. A spokesperson for Mercedes-Benz told Motor Trend that the company does not see the demand for a front-wheel-drive sedan in the U.S. market. The A-class sedan has been on sale in the U.S. since the 2014 model year, and it's currently available in three trim levels: A250, A350, and A45. The A-class sedan is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 188 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque. It's mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The entry-level Benz, starting at $35,000, will no longer be available after 2022, but the CLA will continue production. The CLA is a good option for those looking for a smaller, more affordable Benz. Its starting price makes it more accessible to a broader range of buyers, and its luxurious features make it an excellent value for the price.

The A-class inventory will remain at dealers throughout the year, as Mercedes has yet to announce when production ends for the U.S.

Mercedes-Benz has not given any specific reason for discontinuing the A-Class. Still, many people speculate that it is due to the company's recent struggles to keep up with competitors. Whatever the reason, this is bad news for luxury car buyers.
