Its expensive design will make it feel like the rest of the Benz range The modern and tech-driven interior offers similar comfort to more expensive models. A turbocharged four-cylinder can drive either both the front and all the four wheels and the A-class’s steering is quite nimble. It’s admittedly not as responsive as the tuned A35 version (reviewed separately) However, it’s thrilling to drive.

2022 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Future
One change is coming to The A-class for this season: the optional Premium package is now bundled with SiriusXM satellite radio. The A220 includes a comprehensive assortment of standard equipment and we believe that this model of the A-class is an ideal match for the majority of buyers interested in this model. To connect the car to the road are 17-inch rims. the list of exterior options includes automatic LED headlights as well as rain-sensing windshield wipers and heated side mirrors that have a built-in turn signal. All models have the option of a panoramic sunroof which lets sunlight into the cabin. The passengers can enjoy the standard features like eight-way power-adjustable front seats imitation leather upholstery, as well as dual-zone climate control. You’ll likely want to upgrade to premium features ($1750) that add premium amenities, including a 10.3-inch display, SiriusXM satellite radio, an auto-dimming rearview reflector, and folding side mirrors that fold up.
In A220, which is the 2022 A-class model, the only engine option is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 221 pounds-feet of torque. A front-wheel-drive comes standard for the A220 and the A220 4Matic comes with an all-wheel drive. The seven-speed dual-clutch automated transmission manages gear changes. The A220 4Matic we tested raced from 0-60 mph in 6.1 seconds. It’s slower than the previous A3 we tried that clocked the speed in 5.5 seconds with its strongest engine. We found that the front-drive model had a less harsh impact than the all-wheel-drive version, which is more robust. Both offer an experience that’s smooth and supple. The steering is precise and throttle response is exceptional and there’s nearly no turbo delay.
It is estimated that the EPA predicts that by 2022 Mercedes-Benz A220 will achieve fuel efficiency of 25 mpg within the city and 35 mpg when on the highway. This is less efficient than those in the Audi A3 (29/38 mpg) however it will get more mileage over that of the Acura ILX (24/34 mpg). The A220 4Matic’s mileage decreases down to 24/35 miles per gallon. For more information on the A-class’s efficiency in terms of fuel consumption go to the EPA’s website.
In entry-level luxury vehicles, the cabin design can often be heavy on entry-level models and light on luxurious. This is not the case with the A-class. Its interior is with a stylish appearance that is up to Mercedes-Benz standards. A series of circular air vents add some design to the center stack and the cabin is enhanced with luxury options like leather upholstery along with heated front seats as well as Interior lighting that is LED. The front seats provide unforgettable comfort and make the A-class a fantastic car for people who need to endure long commutes. A standard fold-back seat with a 40/20/40 split enables you to fit items that are large to fit into the trunk. In terms of the trunk, the A-class comes with one important flaw: it’s not big on the cargo capacity. The trunk in the A-class offers only 9 cubic feet to store your possessions.
