Here at Mercedes-Benz of St. Charles, we want to offer luxury to drivers no matter what kind of budget they’re working with. That’s why we’re so excited to offer the new 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class, an entry-level model that could introduce some more drivers to the Mercedes-Benz brand. We think that this small luxury car is impressive, but don’t just take our word for it. See it for yourself and see how it stacks up to competing models like the 2019 Audi A3.

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class

This new Mercedes-Benz model is powered by a 2.0-liter turbo inline-four engine that puts out 188 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. It comfortably seats five and the base model is a front-wheel drive vehicle. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class really excels when it comes to technology. Dual 10.2-inch screens give you all of the info you need on the road, while the new Mercedes-Benz User Experience makes your old infotainment system look like ancient tech. You can set up multiple profiles and use voice controls to set a course, access features, or even cool down the cabin by turning on the air conditioning.

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class also comes standard with a whole host of incredible safety features, including a rearview camera, crosswind assist, and ATTENTION ASSIST®, which can tell when a driver is drowsy. You can add even more features with advanced packages, including tech like Active Parking Assist and PRESAFE® Sound, which can protect your hearing in the event of a collision.

2019 Audi A3

The 2019 Audi A3 offers its own turbo engine with similar power output. It produces 184 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. It’s also front-wheel drive and seats five passengers. Its interior is a bit more sparse than that of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class, which offers a dual screen setup, but you can add the virtual cockpit display for extra. It’s a solid, entry-level luxury car, but we think that the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class offers some key advantages.

First, we think that the new Mercedes-Benz model just offers more tech and great features standard. The MBUX, standard safety features, and the DYNAMIC SELECT driving system, which lets you customize your driving experience. Both models offer plenty of advanced technology, like Wi-Fi and Apple CarPlay™, but the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class offers five USB ports compared to the two found in the Audi model. If you’re looking for a luxury car packed with useful features, you need to talk to our Mercedes-Benz dealers about this new model.
