Although Mercedes-Benz offers the 2022 A-Class sedan in two trim levels, they are basically the same car, with the A220 4MATIC simply adding AWD. The powertrain and features remain identical. Under the hood of the A-Class sedan is a turbocharged 188-hp 2.0-liter inline-four engine mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The A-Class exterior features a panorama roof, LED headlights and taillights, and 17-inch or 18-inch alloy wheels. The interior gets 12-way power-adjustable seats with four-way lumbar support, 64-color LED ambient lighting, remote start via the Mercedes me mobile app, dual-zone climate control, and a seven-inch infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Driver assistance systems include active brake assist, attention assist, blind-spot assist, and crosswind assist.
The spec sheet on the A-Class sedan is already an impressive one, but there will always be those that want a bit of extra exclusivity and practicality. Mercedes-Benz caters for these buyers with a decent list of optional extras. The exterior of the A-Class sedan can be adorned with the $2,600 AMG Line kit that adds features such as AMG body styling, 18-inch AMG alloy wheels, lowered suspension, and a chrome diamond-block grille. Standalone interior options include heated and ventilated seats and a heated steering wheel. Interior packages on offer are the Premium Package, which adds a 10.25-inch cluster and infotainment display, auto-dimming mirrors, keyless-go, hands-free access and, from this year, SiriusXM Radio. The $1,295 Multimedia package includes navigation, augmented video for navigation, and speed-limit assist. The Driver Assistance Package is one of the more notable offerings. For $1,700, it adds safety features such as active steering assist, evasive steering assist, emergency stop assist, and active speed limit assist.
