The 2021 Mercedes-Benz A-Class is a superb car that delivers sophistication and excellent performance. Although cabin space is a little wanting, most drivers will love its sporty looks and luxurious cabin. The cargo area is also very limited, a factor that reduces this vehicle’s functionality.

Design & Style

The sporty wheels further add to the sleek look that makes the 2-Series a favorite for many drivers. Inside the cabin, the instrument panel is intuitively designed to ensure that everything is within reach. The 2021 2-Series has a premium feel and the materials used in the cabin are very upscale.

As would be expected in a Mercedes-Benz model, the 2021 A-Class is well designed. It features sleek lines on its exterior and the cabin is both well-designed and luxurious. Space is limited, more so in the rear seat where the sloping roofline can give tall passengers an uncomfortable journey.

The suspension is also excellent and driving the 2021 2-series over uneven roads does not affect ride quality. Cornering is handled with aplomb. All said, the 2021 2-series is a fun car to drive around a race track or to use as an every-day car.
