First Test: Mercedes-Benz Class A 2019
Seattle, Washington.I always marvel when a car manufacturer puts all his talent forward. In normal times, such efforts are directed to the flagship vehicles of the range. At Mercedes, it is not unusual to notice the latest technological or safety innovations in the S-Class.This time, however, it’s the opposite. Mercedes will have chosen the all-new A-Class, the entry-level car cover, as a showcase to demonstrate their know-how. Such a gesture will pay off. The sales volume and profits do not come from the limited number of cars sold at $ 110,000, but from the panoply of those worth $ 40,000.
Welcome to the summit
Mercedes-Benz is already a huge success in the field of sales thanks to their Classes C and CLA. The latter will be the most affected by the arrival of the new Class A, but we can expect two things: Mercedes will offer good discounts on the CLA and the next generation of the four-door coupe will be larger, leaving it behind. from there to.
So, what about the A220 sedan 2019? In short, I tell you that it redefines the category in which the Audi A3 and BMW 2 Series.
At a glance, we realize that the Class A does not give the impression of being an affordable car. Only its external dimensions betray it. The distinct bodyshell curves, especially when fitted to the optional 19-inch wheels, give it a more premium appearance than the C-Class.
Technology in abundance
Once installed in the cabin, this perception becomes all the more flagrant. When equipped with the optional 10.25-inch dual screens, arranged at the vent nozzles and all the details of the dashboard, it’s like being at the command post of a concept car. This is one of the elements that will seduce more than one!
If the presentation is not enough, however, the level of technology found on board will convince the undecided. In addition to one of the best displays (graphics come from Nvidia), the ability of the system to “learn” and the fact that updates via the “cloud” are now a possibility, the list of apps and functionality is most complete.
Mercedes’ Class A infotainment system, known as the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX ), is proving to be one of the most powerful in the industry at the moment. It is not perfect by cons it retains the habits of the owner. For example, if you visit Aunt Fernande both on Sunday listening to Metallica, the system, a good Sunday, will suggest directions to Aunt Fernande and you will find.
Fun to ride
Those who prefer driving, know that Mercedes has also thought of you. The A220 sedan is powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 188 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. The only transmission is a twin-clutch transmission with seven gears. As an option, the A220 can be equipped with all-wheel drive, replacing standard front-wheel drive.
On the road, the little Mercedes behaves like a big luxury sedan. His suspensions are mainly calibrated for comfort but I had a lot of fun crossing the mountain roads near the big city of Seattle.
The occasions are very interesting thanks to the abundance of torque. The steering, the braking system and the handling are up to expectations.
The Mercedes A220 sedan, as well as the A250 hatchback, is suddenly at the top of its class. All the important criteria of purchase are in her favor, not to mention the fact that she wears the crest of Mercedes, which is an undeniable asset.
