Car And Driver Magazine said that Mercedes-Benz has announced that its newest، smallest car، the 2019 A-class sedan، will start at $33،495 when it goes on sale in early 2019. That makes it the least expensive car that Mercedes sells، undercutting the current CLA by $600. The low cost of entry should help bring even more new customers to the brand; the company says more than 50 percent of CLA buyers were new to the Mercedes-Benz brand.
Car And Driver noted that despite the price، the A-class sedan has a long list of standard equipment. A panoramic sunroof، LED head- and taillights، automated emergency braking، and dual 7.0-inch screens (one in place of the gauge cluster and one for the infotainment) are all standard. Options will include features like adaptive cruise control، augmented-reality navigation، and AMG Line body styling. Adding all-wheel drive costs $2000، meaning the 2019 A220 4Matic's price is $35،495.
So far، Mercedes has only announced the base prices، but a spokesperson told us that a configurator with detailed option pricing will go live on the Benz website later this week. We'll update this story when more information is available.
