For the first time, drivers seeking the style, technology and performance of Mercedes-Benz lineup will have two options below the compact C-Class. With the arrival of the A-Class to the North American market, Mercedes-Benz has allowed drivers to choose the small car that is perfect for them. With this new model’s introduction, we’re already beginning to hear people ask about how it will slot into the Mercedes-Benz lineup and how it will compare to the existing subcompact CLA-Class coupe.
If you’re also wondering how the brand-new 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class will fit into the lineup, we’d love to help. First things first, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class will sit one position beneath the CLA as Mercedes-Benz most affordable car. The A-Class will deliver style and tech in the form of a subcompact sedan, while the CLA will offer a premium experience in the form of its coupe styling and added performance.
