2022 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan Safety and Reliability

Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan Reliability Rating

2022 A-Class Sedan Safety

Unfortunately, the 2022 A-Class sedan has not yet received a rating by either the NHTSA or the IIHS, as neither has subjected the Mercedes-Benz A-Class to review, but the 2018 model of the current-generation car received a perfect score from the folks over at Euro NCAP based on their reviews of it. That being said, there is no doubt that the 2022 car should be as safe or even safer, thanks to standard advanced driver assistance systems.

2022 A-Class Sedan Key Safety Features

Despite its lack of crash-test records, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class should prove to be a safe car thanks to its diverse collection of driver assistance systems. Standard on all A-Class sedans are eight airbags, including combined thorax/pelvic bags, as well as electronic stability control, traction control, and an electronic parking brake. Driver assistance systems include active brake assist, driver attention assist, blind-spot assist, crosswind assist, and adaptive braking technology. LED headlights and rain-sensing windshield wipers do duty as well. The optional Driver Assistance Package adds active steering assist, evasive steering assist, cross-traffic assist, active emergency stop assist, speed-limit assist, active lane keep assist, and more. Parking sensors and a surround-view camera system are optionally available as part of the Parking Assistance package.

2022 A-Class Sedan Reliability

This fresh-faced car has not been around long enough to show any significant faults, and the 2022 A-Class sedan has not yet been recalled. Models built in 2021 did, however, suffer from two recalls relating to a missing anchor bar in the child-seat anchoring system and a blank backup camera display. Mercedes-Benz will cover the A-Class sedan with a five-year/50,000-mile basic warranty, including corrosion, drivetrain, and roadside assistance cover for the same period/mileage to allay fears about reliability.
