We've already reviewed theand loved it, but we didn't know quite how expensive it would be. As it turns out, it's pretty darn affordable for the quality it packs.
The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A220 will start at $32,500 for a front-wheel-drive model. If you live in snowier climes or just want the extra peace of mind of four driven wheels, adding all-wheel drive tacks another $2,000 onto the equation.
There's a solid amount of standard equipment in there, too. All A-Class Sedans get Mercedes-Benz's new MBUX infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, in addition to LED headlights and safety systems like automatic braking and hill-start assist. Its 2.0-liter I4 gas engine puts out 188 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque, and it comes mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
Of course, the price only goes up from there. There are plenty of ways to send the price to the stratosphere -- the 7-inch screens can be updated to 10.25-inchers, there are aesthetic packages galore and other available techy bits like keyless access and a suite of active and passive safety systems.
With the A-Class Sedan's price where it is, expectto be a bit more expensive. Not only do Mercedes' swoopy-coupe variants typically cost more, the CLA-Class is more powerful and a little better equipped than the A-Class with frippery like gesture control.
