The Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan is a major player subcompact executive sedan market. Available in both the sedan and hatchback body styles, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class is a cherished compact vehicle and acts as an entry point for customers to join the Mercedes-Benz family. But just like any other segment, the compact executive sedan market has some serious competition with some big players like the BMW 2 Series, to name one of them. Let’s have a look at what makes the Mercedes-Benz A-Class stand out from the BMW 2 Series.
The 2021 Mercedes-Benz A-Class is available in three trims – A 220, A 220 4MATIC, and AMG A 35. The price range varies from an MSRP of $33.650 for the A 220 to $45.850 MSRP for the Mercedes-AMG A 35. For the 2021 model year, Mercedes-Benz has added a new 18-inch wheel design. Also, blind-spot monitoring system has been made standard on all trims. Not to forget the gesture control feature for the MBUX infotainment system that is offered as an optional feature. Interested in the 2021 Mercedes-Benz A-Class?

The BMW 2 Series is a lot more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class. It also offers a lot more engine options compared to the A-Class. But what the A-Class stands out in is the fact that it has a lower curb weight compared to the 2 Series giving it a better power-to-weight ratio. On top of that, the AMG Enhanced 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine offers commendable performance.
When it comes to features, both the sedans go a neck-and-neck. However, it is the Mercedes-Benz A-Class that takes the spotlight thanks to a premium cabin finish paired with some class-leading features such as power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, MB-Tex upholstery, 64-color LED ambient lighting with illuminated vents, seven-inch touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, steering-wheel touch control buttons, and five USB-C ports, to name a few.
