Mercedes-Benz A-Class

The Mercedes-Benz A-Class is the smallest and cheapest car built by the German manufacturer, and is one of the more popular luxury small hatches on the market.

Mercedes has been building the A-Class since the late ‘90s, and this fourth-generation version was launched in 2018. In 2013 Mercedes-AMG built the high-performance ‘45’ version of the A-Class, which proved incredibly popular. Now, the range has been extended to also include a more affordable performance version, that wears a ‘35’ badge.

The cheapest Mercedes-Benz A-Class costs around $45,000, while the top of the line AMG version can cost more than $90,000. Sitting in the middle of the range is the 250, which costs a touch over $50,000.

Key rivals to the Mercedes-Benz A-Class include the BMW 1 Series and Audi A3.

How much is a Mercedes-Benz A-Class?

The cheapest Mercedes-Benz A-Class is the A180 and will cost you $45,100 before on-roads. The most expensive variant is the high-performance AMG 45 S, which costs $93,235 before on-roads.

Is the Mercedes-Benz A-Class a four-cylinder car?

Every version of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class comes fitted with a four-cylinder engine. The cheaper 180 variants have a 1.3-litre engine, while the 250, 35 AMG, and 45 S AMG version have a 2.0-litre unit.
