The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class introduces young professionals to an affordable luxury car backed by German engineering. The first Mercedes-Benz A-Class launched globally two decades ago, but it never made it to the United States. Now the fourth generation model is making its way to our shores in sedan form.

We've had a taste of what this upcoming sedan will bring to the road in the form of the Mercedes-Benz GLA and CLA. Both models put a spin on the Mercedes-Benz A-Class that we'll see in the coming months.

The Mercedes-Benz A-Class will slot under the Mercedes-Benz CLA, a four-door coupe. The new model will feature more interior space and what's claimed to be the world's most aerodynamic design in a production car. Active grille shutters and underbody paneling optimize performance and fuel economy.

Speaking of performance, a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine powers the new sedan. It produces 188 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. That's the only confirmed engine for now, but it's likely we'll see AMG® variants in the future. Perhaps the European engine line, which includes 221-horsepower turbocharged four cylinder and diesel offerings, will eventually make its way to our shores.


In the meantime, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class will feature a standard seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that works flawlessly with either front-wheel drive or the available 4MATIC® all-wheel drive systems. Wheels sizes start at an athletic 17 inches and top out at an aggressive 19 inches.

Inside, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class features innovative technologies designed for young professionals. The new Mercedes-Benz User Experience infotainment system offers an intuitive control scheme. A new voice-based assistant, similar to Alexa, responds to simple commands.

Like in other models, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility come standard across the range. Innovative safety systems, like Forward-Collision Warning with Automated Emergency Braking, provide peace of mind on the road. Plus, an available 64-color ambient lighting and a head-up display are perfect for young drivers.

Here at Mercedes-Benz of Lafayette, we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the latest Mercedes-Benz model.
