Mercedes-Benz has announced that its newest, smallest car, the 2019 A-class sedan, will start at $33,495 (#12,173,087) when it goes on sale in early 2019. That makes it the least expensive car that Mercedes sells, undercutting the current CLA by $600. The low cost of entry should help bring even more new customers to the brand; the company says more than 50 percent of CLA buyers were new to the Mercedes-Benz brand.
Despite the price, the A-class sedan has a long list of standard equipment. A panoramic sunroof, LED head- and taillights, automated emergency braking, and dual 7.0-inch screens (one in place of the gauge cluster and one for the infotainment) are all standard. Options will include features like adaptive cruise control, augmented-reality navigation, and AMG Line body styling. Adding all-wheel drive costs $2000, meaning the 2019 A220 4Matic’s price is $35,495.
So far, Mercedes has only announced the base prices, but a spokesperson said that a configurator with detailed option pricing will go live on the Benz website later this week. We’ll update this story when more information is available.
