See How the Mercedes-Benz A-Class Compares to the BMW 2 Series and the Audi A3 at Mercedes-Benz of Buckhead

At our Atlanta Mercedes-Benz dealership, we take pride in our selection of sedan and SUV models. Luxury is hard to come by until you climb into the driver's seat of a Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan, an affordable option that doesn't skimp on features, technology, and amenities to ensure you enjoy every minute.

With the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, you'll find a luxury sedan that enjoys a seamless blend of capability, comfort, and convenience. Designed with the finest materials available and equipped with the latest technology, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class is a luxury sedan option that delights drivers and critics around Atlanta. But, that doesn't mean it can't be compared to the competition.

The small luxury sedan segment is filled with plenty of options that stack up admirably to the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, like the BMW 2 Series and the Audi A3. While both luxury options offer plenty of enjoyment for you in your travels, they still fall behind the Mercedes-Benz A-Class as the premium option for your lifestyle. Check out how they compare down below!

Mercedes Benz A-Class vs. BMW 2 Series

  • Design: Premium luxury is key when you purchase a new sedan like the Mercedes-Benz A-Class or BMW 2 Series. Both models are well-equipped with a plethora of features that enhance the style to match your specific tastes. While the BMW 2 Series lineup offers an arsenal of features like a power moonroof for a more open-air experience, you'll need to upgrade to more expensive trim levels to unlock these features. The Mercedes-Benz A-Class equips a panorama roof on the base model at a more affordable amount than the BMW 2 Series base option.
  • Efficiency: While both offer 2.0-liter turbocharged engines underneath the hood, the Mercedes-Benz provides a more economical approach to the road. This premium sedan option offers a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission standard, with fuel economy estimates at 24/35 mpg city/highway. The BMW 2 Series can be equipped with a six-speed manual transmission, which limits the BMW to 21/32 mpg city/highway. The eight-speed automatic still only offers 24/32 mpg city/highway.
  • Connectivity: If you're looking to enjoy your favorite music through the most popular streaming apps, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class comes standard with a seven-inch touchscreen display and the integration of Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. BMW offers its own setup, but limits you to a 6.5-inch touchscreen and no smartphone integration standard.

      Mercedes-Benz A-Class vs. Audi A3

    • Engine Performance: The Mercedes-Benz A-Class comes equipped with a responsive and quietly-powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, a near match to the engine underneath the hood of the Audi A3. However, the A-Class sedan offers a bit more horsepower, meaning you can experience a more thrilling experience every time you step on the gas pedal. Upgrading to the AMG-enhanced offers more horsepower and torque, surpassing even the upgraded engine in the A3.
    • Technology: The Mercedes-Benz A-Class comes equipped with two seven-inch screens that display both important car information and access to your music while you're out on the road. Equipped with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, you'll enjoy some of your favorite songs with smartphone integration, including the best streaming apps. Audi also offers smartphone integration and a seven-inch screen, but you'll only be limited to one screen of that size. Convenience is found much more easily in the Mercedes-Benz sedan.
    • Exterior Design: Both models offer a similar package of standard features that ensure you are the center of attention, no matter where you go. Each one offers automatic headlights, LED Daytime Running Lights, and LED Taillights, all of which are designed to provide premium clarity at night. However, only the Mercedes-Benz A-Class is standard with LED headlights, something you need to pay more for on the Audi A3.
