About the Mercedes-Benz A-Class

Mercedes-Benz is proud to introduce you to the smallest member of the growing lineup of Mercedes-Benz vehicles. The Mercedes-Benz A-Class is meticulously crafted with the proportions of a dynamic compact sedan with short front and rear overhangs which exude an aura of confidence. Power comes from a 2.0-liter inline-4 turbocharged engine and 7G-DCT dual-clutch transmission for the perfect combination of efficiency and response. Inspired by technologies from the iconic Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the A-Class sets the benchmark for safety in the compact luxury sedan segment.

In addition, the A-Class also comes standard with the MBUX – Mercedes-Benz User Experience multimedia system. Drivers and passengers alike will notice generous shoulder, elbow, and headroom in addition to simplified access to the rear of the A-Class. Engineered with practicality in mind, the trunk was designed for comfortable loading and unloading of bulky luggage or other cargo. Athletic handling and spirited acceleration are two additional benefits you’ll experience behind the wheel of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

What the Critics Say

With entry-level luxury models, the cabin design can sometimes be heavy on the entry-level and light on the luxury. That isn’t the case with the A-class. This sedan has an interior with a premium look that lives up to Mercedes-Benz standards.” — Car and Driver

From a performance perspective, our A 220 test vehicle comported itself well at the test track. Our editors liked its linear power delivery, generally smooth upshifts, and sporty, tail-happy handling” – Motor Trend

What’s New for 2022

Mercedes-Benz A-Class Features

Mercedes-Benz A-Class Exterior Styling

Eye-Catching Style

Precision crafted while adhering to the design idiom of Sensual Purity, the stunning Mercedes-Benz A-Class stands out for its clear, formal shapes that emphasize surface areas through reduced lines and precise gaps. Available 19-inch wheels and pronounced wheel arches give the A-Class a powerful stance on the road. Other signature styling elements include a low, elongated hood, chrome slim-line headlamps, and an optional single-louvre diamond radiator grille with chrome pins. Its rear bumper can be optioned with a black diffuser or a chrome strip and tailpipe tips to match your personal styling preferences. Standard LED Headlamps with integrated LED Daytime Running Lamps provide excellent visibility of the road ahead.

Mercedes-Benz A-Class Interior

Luxurious Interior

Offering an entirely new sense of spaciousness, the revolutionary interior of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class is primarily defined by the avant-garde design of the dashboard. A standard 7-inch or an available 10.25-inch freestanding widescreen display located in the center of the dash gives you easy access to your favorite media. Standard ambient interior lighting allows drivers to experience a total of 64 different colors comprised of ten color themes to create a lighting display with spectacular color changes. The A-Class also comes equipped with MBUX – the Mercedes-Benz User Experience multimedia system. A key distinction that separates this ingenious system from the ordinary is its unique ability to learn via Artificial Intelligence. MBUX offers customization which adapts to its user, forming an emotional connection between the vehicle, driver, and passengers. Stunning 3D maximum-resolution graphics are calculated and displayed in real time to deliver a truly remarkable experience.

Mercedes-Benz A-Class Park Assist Safety

Cutting-Edge Safety

Featuring functions inspired by the iconic S-Class, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class offers the most current driver assistance technology in its segment. Using an improved camera and radar system which allows the vehicle to see more than 1,500 feet ahead, the A-Class has the ability to drive semi-autonomously in certain conditions. Available Active Lane Keeping Assist works by alerting the driver with pulsed vibrations in the steering wheel in the event that the A-Class begins to drift out of its intended lane. PRESAFE® PLUS is able to detect an imminent rear-end collision and firmly apply the brakes in an effort to reduce the risk of a secondary collision. Included as standard, Active Brake Assist helps mitigate or avoid the consequences of rear-end collisions with slower-moving, stopping, or stationary vehicles ahead.
