The 2019 Mercedes A-Class sedan goes on sale early next year. It’ll officially debut at the forthcoming Paris Motor Show. The car will be available in Sport and AMG Line trims levels, but not in entry-level SE.
The diesel-powered A-Class Sport costs from $36,000, the price for the petrol Sport will be about $36,400. For comparison: the Mercedes A-Class hatchback costs £22,850 ($29,600) in UK.
AMG Line pack includes 18-inch AMG wheels, a three-spoke steering wheel, sports seats and an AMG body kit. Optional equipment packs – Executive and Premium will cost for customers additional $1,800 and $3,100 respectively.
The sedan’s trunk is 50 liters larger that the hatch’s, so it has more practicality. The model’s motor range includes at start a petrol 1.3-liter unit with 163 hp and a diesel 116-hp engine of 1.5 liters, paired with a 7-speed automatic transmission as standard.
A more powerful 2.0-litre petrol 190 hp motor may appear later in the Mercedes A-Class sedan (A220 version), available now exclusively in the hatchback’s AMG Line trim.
The new A-Class has taken from the outgoing CLA a title of the best-in-the-world production car with the lowest aerodynamic drag. The Mercedes’s A-Class range will likely be also extended with a new GLA SUV and the CLA 4-door coupe.
