We have long awaited the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class, and now that it is within reach, it’s time to give one final research push before deciding if it’s right for you. To do so, we have decided to take the fierce competitor of this Mercedes-Benz sedan; the 2019 Audi A3. Both vehicles are well-liked in European countries, and now that both models are in the USA, we get to see how well they do here in Scottsdale, AZ, when pitted against one another.
You’ll notice that at first glance, the two models are rather similar when it comes how much power they offer. The A-Class has a bit more horsepower, and the A3 has a bit more torque. But what else can these two vehicles bring to your drive? That is what we are here to find out!
2019 Mercedes-Benz A 220
2019 Audi A3 Premium
|$32,500||Starting MSRP*||188 hp & 221 lb.-ft.|
|Horsepower/Torque||184 hp & 222 lb.-ft.||Standard|
|MBUX® system||N/A||5 USB-C ports|
|USB Ports||2 ports||2 ports|
As you can see, these two vehicles are very similar when it comes to price and power. You’ll have the same Starting MSRP* of $32,500 for both vehicles. This price is well in range for many budgets and makes both vehicles an admirable choice for your future vehicle. However, the 2019 A-Class does have some advantages over the 2019 A3.
When it comes to technology, you’ll be able to see the much-anticipated MBUX® entertainment system on the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan. Because this technology is a Mercedes-Benz product, you won’t be able to get it on the A3. It’s easy to see how the Mercedes-Benz A-Class is geared more towards younger buyers with its multimedia technologies and connections. This is again shown in the 5 USB-C ports that are standard in both trims of the A-Class. While the A3 has a solid 2 USB port connectivity, the A-Class blows it out of the water by having connectivity for all passengers in the popular sedan.
