There’s not much of a difference between driving the two body styles of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class, according to the following review, which also points out that it’s less sporty and aggressive than a BMW 2-Series Coupe, and a bit more comfortable than an Audi A3 Sedan.
While the exterior may look bland to some of the targeted audience, inside it’s a different story. Mercedes-Benz has fitted the car with adjustable ambient lighting and the well-received MBUX infotainment system that provides access to a host of features. The dual-screen layout is offered as standard on all trim levels, albeit in a smaller size on the entry-level variant.
The backseat is surprisingly comfortable, apparently, and suitable for two adults, as three can be a crowd on long journeys, and the 420lt (14.83cu-ft) boot space can be enough for a weekend getaway.
The new-gen CLA is already in development, and should be introduced next year, as a more stylish alternative to the A-Class Sedan, with less headroom on the rear bench due to the sloping roofline, and a slightly smaller boot.
