Mercedes-Benz introduced us to a new model earlier this year that was supposed to be a new addition to the entry-level executive car lineup. Anyone who has seen the all-new A-Class firsthand will tell you it looks nothing like an entry-level luxury car. The sleek exterior profile has the same signature body lines and bold front fascia found in other popular Mercedes-Benz models, but inside, it’s like the future of driving is here in the present. The luxurious, richly-crafted cabin is laid out in an intelligent manner with all the readings and screens in places that are easy to access and ambient lighting that helps set the mood. Why would you want any other entry-level luxury sedan? In this comparison between the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class vs 2019 BMW 2-Series, you’ll see how the two stack up against each other. Take a look at the comparison below!

All the hype surrounding the A-Class before its release has certainly been warranted. As far as performance goes, it won’t necessarily wow you with big numbers like some of the AMG® models, but the A-Class still holds its own. Under the hood is a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that has 188 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque, which is the perfect mix of efficiency and power. DYNAMIC SELECT® offers four different driving modes to either increase the fuel economy or increase the throttle response for a sportier drive.
The interior technology has been the most anticipated aspect of the A-Class, and it delivered that and then some. The Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) system is a first for the industry as a whole, and further goes to show how Mercedes-Benz is leading the pack in innovation. The feature allows users to voice commands or requests with their natural voice (no need to annunciate) and the system will respond accordingly. Some of the other interior highlights for the A-Class include Mercedes me connect services, dual 10.25-inch display screens, a Head-Up Display, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and much more.
BMW may hold its ground well against other luxury models, but not Mercedes-Benz. The A-Class has proved itself as a worthy contender for your next vehicle. Find out what all the hype is about when you take it for a test drive here at Mercedes-Benz of Gilbert in Gilbert AZ!
