In this context, it can be frustrating to see that Canada is getting the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class hatchback while the United States is not. So yes, Canadian buyers have been able to order themselves a brand new 2019 A-Class hatchback since November 2018.
Now, MBPassionBlog reports the model has arrived at Mercedes’ Canadian dealers in two configurations — the A250 and A250 4Matic. Both are powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine producing 221 hp (224 PS) at 5,500 rpm and 258 lb-ft of torque between 1,800 and 4,000 rpm.
Linked to a standard 7G-DCT automatic transmission, the engine drives the front wheels in the standard model and all four wheels in the A250 4Matic. The A250 starts at C$35,990 (about $27,500 in U.S. currency) while the A250 4Matic is priced from C$37,990 (approximately $29,000). The prices don’t include tax and delivery costs.
So what do Canadian customers get for their money? Quite a lot, as it turns out. The standard spec sheet includes a panoramic glass sunroof, LED headlights and taillights, 17-inch alloys, Artico upholstery, heated front seats (power adjustable with memory function for the driver), Thermotronic automatic climate control, 7-inch MBUX infotainment system, rearview camera, Dynamic Select and much more.
Canadian buyers who want more features can choose between five packages (Premium Package, Navigation Package, Sport Package, Technology Package, and Night Package). Several standalone options are also available.
Like in the United States, the A-Class sedan is also available in Canada in A220 and A220 4Matic configurations.
