2019 Mercedes-Benz A200 POV Drive Showcases Its High-Tech Features

Thanks to its modern design, in the same vein as the company’s latest models, high-tech cabin and new platform, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class has enjoyed positive reviews so far.

One of the signature features of the premium compact hatchback is the MBUX infotainment system and digital instrument cluster.

The dashboard has also been totally redesigned, with a new center console and air vents. Extra points go to the ambient lighting, which allows drivers to select from as much as 64 colors, and the head-up display that makes driving safer by projecting different functions on the windscreen.

With the high-tech interior, Mercedes-Benz has upped the game for the Audi A3 Sportback and BMW 1-Series, as well as the upcoming Volvo V40, too.

However, the following video isn’t about how it compares to its direct rivals; rather, it’s about what the 2019 A-Class looks like from behind the wheel.

The model seen here is the A200 that’s powered by a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder with 163PS (160hp / 119kW) and 250Nm (184lb-ft) of torque. The lump works together with a six-speed manual or, as is the case in this video, a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

So, in case you were wondering what Merc’s brand new hatch is like from the driver’s seat, you can watch the 13-minute POV video that follows and showcases the model’s various features.

    Amazing and this is just a compact car with the tech it has! It’s unreal what Mercedes Benz’s are capable of!

    • Loquacious Borborygmus

      Yeah…

    • wintergraan

      But take a look a its price tag. All these features make this car mind-blowingly expensive 😉

      • PK

        it’s around $50k in usa price in full package isn’t?

      • pcurve

        It’s $34,500 for A200 that comes with plastic hubcaps. lol!

      • salamOOn

        if you dont want/need a big sedan/SUV, you can finally have a small luxury car…. its logical that it would be expensive.

  • David Patrick Dugan

    I see a lot of time with driver’s eyes off the road.

      All those screens plus the vents make for a seriously busy environment. I would hope you could turn all that stuff off as it is distracting. On the current 45 models you can turn the lights down but nowhere near enough so at night the harsh grey dial lights suck. That’s where audi wins hands down with soft red lights and a more seemingly simple interior.

    Very impressive. I like it but it can be quite distracting too.
