2019 Mercedes Benz A-Class First Drive


The materials aren’t as nice as you’d find in an S-Class, but for around $30,000, that’s expected. The good news is, unlike some materials in the CLA, the A-Class doesn’t feel built to price. Everything you touch feels high quality—especially considering the price—and the interior design really does look great. Other standard interior goodies include a panoramic sunroof and dual-zone automatic climate control. The options list includes navigation, ambient lighting, multi-countour and heated/ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, inductive wireless charging for cell phones, a head-up display, and a Burmester sound system. Mercedes says the A-Class is at the top of its segment for rear headroom, which is an issue for the CLA.
