Since it arrived in the U.S., the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class has wowed Los Angeles drivers and critics alike with its generous technologies and compact design. Even up against more expensive models, such as the 2020 BMW 330i, the new A-Class Sedan continues shines. Compare the Mercedes-Benz A-Class vs. BMW 330i — the BMW 3-Series’ base model — to find out what makes the A-Class so special.

A-Class vs. 3-Series: Pricing

The 2020 BMW 3-Series 330i has a starting MSRP of $40,750. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class A 220 doesn’t ask quite as much of Los Angeles car shoppers with a starting MSRP of $32,500*. Warranty coverage is similar; both models offer the following coverages for new buyers:

  • Bumper-to-Bumper Coverage: 48 months/50,000 miles
  • Powertrain Warranty: 48 months/50,000 miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 4 years

A-Class vs. 3-Series: Technology Features

When it comes to technology, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class and 2020 BMW 3-Series are leaders among compact sedans. The BMW 330i comes standard with the iDrive system with an on-board computer, an 8.8-inch central display screen, and a controller with eight programmable memory buttons.

The Mercedes-Benz A-Class, however, is revolutionary. For the price, it includes features that previously could only be unlocked on a top-tier E-Class or S-Class. The A-Class comes with Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX), which includes features you can’t get on a vehicle that doesn’t wear the Three-Pointed Star:

  • 7-inch touchscreen multimedia display
  • 7-inch digital instrument cluster
  • Touchpad controller (also standard on the 330i)
  • Bluetooth®** hands-free and audio streaming
  • “Hey, Mercedes-Benz” keyword activation
  • Available voice control system that learns your everyday style of speaking

Additionally, the A-Class Sedan comes standard with both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, while the BMW 330i offers Apple CarPlay® only.

A-Class vs. 3-Series: Safety Features

As luxury sedans, you’d expect the Mercedes-Benz A-Class and BMW 3-Series to offer their fair share of driver assistance technologies — and they certainly do. Both come equipped with a driver attention system, a rearview camera, and a forward collision mitigation system with automatic braking. Mercedes-Benz is known for its cutting-edge safety, however, and the A-Class benefits from this reputation, offering a few optional safety features you can’t find on the BMW Sedan:

  • Optional PRESAFE® Sound: This feature is an extension of PRESAFE®, and plays a “pink noise” through the audio system if a possible collision is detected. The pink noise stimulates a natural reflex reaction in the human ear that helps protect your hearing from the loud impact of a crash.
  • Optional Route-Based Speed Adaptation: This system works in tandem with available MB Navigation and Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC® to anticipate the appropriate speeds for the routes you take around Pasadena.
