When a luxury brand distills down its ethos to an entry-level sedan it will be small to make it affordable but will not be compromised in quality. The2021 Mercedes-Benz A-class proves this point at every angle. It delivers a sophisticated ride experience which is no less than the ones that are more expensive.
Mercedes has equipped all its A-class models with a host of advanced luxury amenities that can go on to extendwith handful of optional extras, stated a sales personnel of the showroom of Mercedes Benz dealership Montreal.
The first highlight of the 2021 Mercedes-Benz A-class is not only its luxury appointments, but also its performance and ride quality. For this, the automaker selected a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and has made it standard. It delivers adequate power but keeps quiet even while highway cruising.
The tech features in the 2021 Mercedes-Benz A-class are abound as well. It includes a version of Mercedes’s dual-screen infotainmentgauge that displays a setup with yet another MBUX infotainment interface.
All this has put the 2021 Mercedes-Benz A-class into a direct competition with the Cadillac CT4 model series as well as the BMW 2-series Gran Coupe. Nowonder in most of the rating aspects, Mercedes overrides the other two in its refined in-car luxury ride experience.
Newly Introduced for 2021
In addition to the installation of a new 18-inch wheel design, the 2021 A-class model series gains a blind-spot monitoring and an optional gesture control feature asstandard that will work in tune with MBUX infotainment system.
With the release of the 2021 model year edition of the A-class, Mercedes Benz continued its choice of putting up the lineup with a sole engine choice. It is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that is capable of generating 188 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque.
Likewise, it will be the front-wheel drive that will come up as standard with the A220 trim, while the higher trim A220 4Matic will come with an optional all-wheel drive offer. As for transmission, Mercedes opts for a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission to handle the gear shifts without any human interference.
With this powertrain at work the 2021 Mercedes Benz A Class models are able to return an EPA rated fuel economy of 25 mpg with the city drive speed and 36 mpg when running on the highway.
The A220 4Matic trim that we tested at the showroom complex of the Montreal Mercedes Benz dealership Laval, hustled to pick up a speed from zero to 60 mph in merely 6.1 seconds. However, irrespective of the powertrain combination, both the trim models of the 2021 Mercedes Benz A Class deliver an exemplary ride quality with reasonably comfortable and poised movements. For this, the steering had to be precise in its response, as well as the throttle without any turbo lag.
All this once again made us believe in the automaker Mercedes Benz that when it comes to laying out a luxurious transport solution, the Mercedes Benz will never stand second to any, if not leave them behind.
