Meet The New Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan For America

Reveal

Mercedes’ sleek compact sedan is loaded with advanced tech you would normally expect to find in the flagship S-Class.

Months after unveiling the hatchback variant for Europe and the long wheelbase version for China, Mercedes-Benz has finally lifted the wraps off the A-Class sedan that will be sold in North America for the first time in the model’s history. Measuring 179.1 inches long and riding on a 107.4-inch wheelbase, the standard A-Class sedan is 2.3 inches shorter than the Chinese version but it still looks extremely sleek and stylish, with clear design cues from the CLA. As revealed by Mercedes earlier this week, the new compact luxury sedan has the lowest aerodynamic drag of any production car in the world with a drag coefficient 0.22, beating the previous record set by the CLA Coupe. Wheel options range from 17 to 19 inches, depending on trim.

The A-Class Sedan will be available in two different flavors: an A220 and an A220 4Matic. Both trims are powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four engine sending 188 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque to either the front or all four wheels, mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. That makes the sedan more powerful than the entry-level A-Class hatch, which has 161 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque.

Inside, the A-Class Sedan is loaded with new tech. It’s the first US model to gain Mercedes’ advanced MBUX infotainment system carried over from the A-Class hatch, which features a high-resolution widescreen cockpit, a touchscreen display with augmented reality technology, and intelligent voice control with natural speech recognition. The entry-level model also includes an assortment of driver assists you would normally expect to find in the flagship S-Class, such as Active Brake Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assist.

The North American version will be built at the in Aguascalientes, Mexico, while the European version will be built alongside the hatchback in Germany. The Mercedes A-Class Sedan will go on sale in the US later this year, with pricing to be announced closer to launch.
