The A-Class is the gateway to the prestigious Mercedes-Benz family. Available in four-door sedan and five-door hatchback configurations, it was the first car to feature the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system, which uses artificial intelligence. Under the hood is a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that delivers 188 horsepower in the sedan and 221 horsepower in the hatchback. Performance enthusiasts will definitely prefer the 302-horsepower AMG A 35 model.
