Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

What you must know before buying the Mercedes-Benz A-Class

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - August 4, 2020
  • 2021 A-Class orders open
  • Rebates: $1,000 loyalty bonus
  • Finance: From 0% for 36 mo. (2020)
  • Lease: From $349/month (2020)

Deals remain:

The A-Class is Mercedes' newest entry-level model that's packed with the latest technology. Although the A-Class and CLA-Class were close in price initially -- only a $600 difference -- the redesigned 2020 CLA-Class' higher price stretches that gap to over $4,000.

The 2020 A-Class is in stock now and carries on with mostly the same offers, including a 90-day first payment deferral on loans and leases taken through Mercedes-Benz Financial Services.

Buyers looking for the latest model year can now order the 2021 A-Class, which gains its first promotional offer this month -- a loyalty bonus.

Current offers are available nationally through August 31, 2020. We expect no new offers for Labor Day.

$1,000 loyalty cash:

Cash offers are rare on the A-Class, but the 2020 A-Class continues with a $1,000 loyalty bonus if you finance through Mercedes-Benz Financial Services. This offer is available for current Mercedes owners and stackable with the low APR below.

The 2021 A-Class also gets a new $1,000 loyalty bonus this month for current Mercedes-Benz owners, but doesn't require financing to get it.

Low APR:

The 2020 A-Class continues with 0% APR financing for 36 months. On top of this low APR offer, the 2020 A-Class boasts a 90-day first payment deferral.

Lease from $349 per month:

The 2020 A220 continues with a 36-month promotional lease offer this month. It runs $349 per month with $3,643 due at signing. With an effective monthly cost of $450, this is a poor value relative to its MSRP.

This promotional lease allows up to 10,000 miles per year and qualifies for the 90-day first payment deferral.

2021 Mercedes-Benz A-Class: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor

Model Preview

In 2019, Mercedes-Benz debuted a new entry-level model, the A-Class, and moved its existing CLA-Class up one notch. In 2020, the A-Class gained a new AMG model but remained mostly unchanged. With this compact sedan still fresh, we expect the 2021 A-Class to hit showrooms unchanged.

The current A-Class boasts a simple but refined look that includes signature Mercedes grille designs, sporty bumper options, angular headlights, smooth body lines, a coupe-like roofline, a cab-rearward design, a stubby trunk, a shaped-by-the-wind backside, and bumper-integrated exhaust tips. We expect this design and the sportier AMG A35 to remain unchanged in 2021.

Inside, the 2020 A-Class brought in a sporty design that included eye-grabbing rounded air vents, an available flat-bottom steering wheel, a 7-inch digital gauge cluster, a 7-inch infotainment screen, and more. With this design still fresh, we expect this design to remain the same in the 2021 A-Class.

Mercedes-Benz A-Class

Under its hood, we expect the 2021 A-Class to roll in with the same powertrain options. The current A-Class comes standard with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that cranks out 188 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. Moving into the AMG A35 adds a 302-hp 2.0-liter engine that helps sprint this small sedan to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds.

Mercedes is no stranger to advanced safety equipment, and even this gateway sedan boasts standard automatic emergency braking. Optionally, buyers can add the driver-assistance package to get adaptive cruise control, active lane control, and blind-spot monitors. While there are plenty of nannies to keep you safe, the IIHS and NHTSA have not tossed the A-Class against any walls yet, so there are no safety ratings. At the very least, we expect the 2021 A-Class to continue with the same available safety features.

Pricing & Release Date

Mercedes hasn’t announced an official on-sale date for the 2021 A-Class yet, but we expect it to arrive in the summer of 2020 based on past years’ schedules.

Pricing also remains up in the air, though we expect no big changes from the non-AMG model’s current MSRP range of $33,795 to $35,795 (destination fees included). The AMG A35’s MSRP is not yet available, but stay tuned for updates.

This compact luxury sedan will compete with the Acura ILX, Audi A3, and BMW 2-Series.
