Is The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan A Worthy Premium Entry Point?

While some automakers are stepping away from sedans, like Ford, others have expanded their portfolio with new four-door products, like Mercedes-Benz and their first-ever A-Class Sedan.

Underpinned by the same platform as the latest A-Class hatchback, it gets the same technology, interior design and powertrains, competing against the likes of the four-door Audi A3.

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.

All in all, Mercedes-Benz seems to have scored big with the first A-Class Sedan, which continues to be sold alongside the current CLA.

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.
