A Look at the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A220 SedanGiancarlo Perlas September 22, 2018
The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A220 Sedan sits between the entry-level A180 and the A250. It is one of the trims offered by the first sedan variant of the A-Class, and it is the most affordable model of the range in the US with around $34,000 price tag.
What does the Mercedes-Benz A220 Sedan offer to customers?
The four-door A220 Sedan has a wheelbase measuring 107.4 inches. The weight of the car is about 3,200 to 3,300 lbs. for the front-wheel-drive (FWD) and all-wheel-drive (AWD) versions. The vehicle follows the design of the A-Class hatchback but traces of the CLA styling can be seen at its rear. Meanwhile, the body of the A220 features smooth and clean surfaces.
The cabin of the car has a five-passenger layout. Basically, the design reflects all the elements found in the A-Class hatch.
The highlight of the A220’s interior is its dual-screen infotainment system measuring 7 inches each. It can be upgraded to twin 10.25-inch screens, and it uses the new MBUX intelligent multimedia system that is capable of processing voice commands and learning from the preferences of its users.
The Mercedes-Benz A220 Sedan is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The unit produces 188 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque. The power is distributed by a seven-speed automatic transmission to either an FWD or 4MATIC AWD system.
A 188 hp output might be low for a premium car, but thanks to the light weight of the A220, it is capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in 6.8 and 6.6 seconds for the FWD and AWD versions, respectively. On the other hand, the top speed of the auto is electronically-capped at 130 mph.
