HIGHS: The steering is smooth and fluid, the interior looks very stylish and there is plenty of rear legroom inside.
LOWS: Small luggage that’s not as fast as some competing models, some competitors offer better warranty coverage.
VERDICT: The A-Class gives you the style and sophistication that you expect from a car with the Mercedes-Benz emblem.
Entry-level models offer buyers an affordable price tag as part of luxury car production. And the A-Class plays a role in the Mercedes-Benz family. This compact sedan is the smallest car on offer from automakers. Besides, it is the cheapest. With a long list of standard equipment, first-class interiors, and a relatively low price tag. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz A-Class offers excellent value for money. Despite its small dimensions, this sedan offers ample passenger space with ample legroom for adults in the rear. However, competing models offer more cargo space. Overall, this little Mercedes is the best choice among top-class luxury sedans.
What’s New for 2020?
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class will remain unchanged until 2020, ahead of their 2019 American debut.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
The only engine option for the 2020 A-Class is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 188 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. The A220 comes standard with four-wheel drive and the A220 4Matic comes with four-wheel drive. Shifting is carried out by a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The A220 4Matic we tested accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 6.1 seconds.
It’s slightly slower than the A3 we tested, and it lasted 5.5 seconds with the best engine on the street. We found that the Class A AWD sedan was not as loud as the heavier AWD models. However, both models offer a relatively comfortable and stable ride. The steering is precise, the throttle response is good, the turbo lag is small.
Interior and Comfort
For entry-level luxury models, the interior design is sometimes heavier for entry-level models and lighter for luxury ones. A-Class – no. This sedan has a bounty interior that fulfills Mercedes-Benz’s criteria. The front seats offer unforgettable comfort, and the A-Class is a great vehicle for those who need to travel long distances for work.
Foldable 40/20/40 rear seats can add oversized items that won’t fit in the trunk. Speaking of the trunk, the A-Class has one major flaw. It’s all about bearing capacity. The car trunk has just 9.0 cubic feet of storage space for your belongings.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
The EPA predicts that the Mercedes-Benz A220 will achieve 24/35 mpg city/highway fuel economy by 2020. It’s less economical than the Audi A3 (27/36 mpg) but the Acura ILX (24/34 mpg). With the A220 4Matic, mileage drops to 24/34 mpg.
