The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan – A220

A220

The all-new 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class is due to arrive very soon! You can see lots of details at MBUSA.com. We do not yet have a firm launch date but it has bee suggested as “1st Quarter” and “Early 2019.”

I am thinking the A-Class will be an excellent vehicle for folks who don’t love the increased size of the C-Class but want something a little more traditional than the CLA. The new technology has been a major focus of the pre-launch campaign but is not the only strength of the A-Class. They styling is very much like the new CLS-Class, there are lots of great wheel options and it should be very efficient. I think there is something for everyone to love!

Here is the pricing announcement from MBUSA:

Today, we are pleased to announce the MSRP for the All-New 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan.

The A-Class Sedan introduces the game-changing new infotainment system called MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience). Featuring a completely new user interface, natural speech recognition, touchscreen capabilities and a new Touchpad, MBUX represents a powerful user experience that also incorporates artificial intelligence to learn your habits over time and automatically adapt to changes in patterns of behavior.

The A 220 will start at an MSRP of $32,500, while the A220 4MATIC will start at $34,500.

The A 220 and A 220 4MATIC both feature a 2.0L inline-4 turbocharged engine that produces 188 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque. This powerful and fuel efficient power plant is mated to a 7G-DCT dual-clutch transmission. The extensive standard equipment for the A 220 and A 220 4MATIC includes a Panorama roof and the intuitively-operated MBUX multimedia system with intelligent Voice Control. The in-car experience welcomes a new era of connectivity with standard Smartphone Integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a high-resolution widescreen cockpit concept with a 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster and 7.0-inch touchscreen multimedia display. The exterior design is further refined with standard 17” wheels and LED headlamps and taillamps.

Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan Coming to the US!

A-Class Sedan

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class made its debut recently and was extensively covered by the automotive press. Normally this hatchback doesn’t get any attention in the Untied States because it has never been sold here. However, this time is a little different.

No, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class hatchback is not coming to the US. However, the framework and technology will be translated to a more US-friendly sedan styled vehicle that we are expecting to be for sale by the end of calendar year 2018! The Concept A Sedan is featured in the Future Vehicle section of MBUSA and should give you a pretty good idea of what the A-sedan might look like.

Later on this A-Class architecture will be the basis for the next generation CLA and GLA-Class vehicles so we are getting a sneak peek into those models as well.

There are also a lot of great reviews of the A-Class hatchback that might help you understand the underpinnings of this new model.

Car and Driver – “When it comes to the user interface, infotainment, and telematics, the next A-class will be more advanced than the S-class. Or pretty much any other car in the market, for that matter.”

AutoWeek – “The launch of the A-Class sedan will be a pretty significant step for Mercedes-Benz in the States; it’s the first true sub-C-Class sedan model offered here (we’re not counting the near-fastback CLA), which should present a tempting option for those who do not want to stretch their budgets to the now-opulent C-Class but still want a small four-door sedan with a three-pointed star.”

Jalopnik – “The new A-Class is also apparently very safe: each piece of its body is made of high-strength materials and has a very rigid passenger cell, kind of like how Smarts are made.”

I do not have any details yet on this model for the US but we have already started an order list!
