The new 2019 Mercedes A-Class Sedan is the latest member of the A-Class family and will serve as the brand’s entry point if you happen to live in North America.
US-spec models will be available in A 220 guise, meaning power comes from a turbocharged 2.0-liter petrol four-cylinder engine with 188hp and 221lb-ft of torque. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission will be the only option, with Mercedes USA to also offer an all-wheel drive version, or as the company calls it the A 220 4Matic.
The new A-Class Sedan is a new addition to Mercedes’ compact range in North America, meaning that it will be sold alongside the CLA model. The four-door compact sedan will be produced at Daimler’s joint venture plant in Mexico, as well as in the Rastatt factory in Germany.
Standard specification in US-spec cars will include features like the brand-new MBUX infotainment system that features AI-assisted voice control and a pair of seven-inch displays (bigger, 10.25-inch screens are optional), as well as Active Brake Assist. Customers will be able to further customize the new Mercedes A-Class Sedan with the Progressive, AMG Line and Night Package equipment lines that will be offered as options.
A big highlight of the four-door A-Class remains the interior design; Mercedes says that their new approach creates a new feeling of spaciousness in combination with the modern, avant-garde look. The ambient lighting offers 64 colors this time, composed into ten color themes to suit every mood.
As you would expect, the list with the optional features is quite long, even including driver assistance systems from the S-Class, including a semi-autonomous function under certain conditions.
Details on pricing, performance and fuel economy will be announced in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
