2022 BMW 2-Series vs. 2022 Mercedes Benz A-Class

 

You’ll always find a battle between German automakers such as BMW and Mercedes Benz and this is good for buyers. Competition drives constant improvement and this is also the case with the new 2022 BMW 2 Series and the 2022 Mercedes Benz A-Class. Although these models look slightly different, they have a plethora of similarities and this might make you wonder which one is right for you. Keep reading to learn more.

Design & Style

When it comes to design and style, the BMW is hard to beat. It features a premium interior decorated with wood elements and textured upholstery. You also get a large 12.3 inch instrument cluster that displays virtually everything you need to know about your car at any moment during your journey.

The Mercedes also features premium elements and ambient LED lighting inside the cockpit. The seats are comfortable, the driving position is sublime, but you might find it difficult to put something in the small cargo space at the back.

Technology & Safety

In the technology department, the BMW also offers more. You get a 8.8 inch infotainment panel that’s easily accessible and intuitive. You also get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a premium speaker system that blasts hundreds of high-quality watts while driving. This vehicle also comes with many standard safety features and driver-assist systems.

The Mercedes comes with a smaller touchscreen display that measures just 7 inches. Although this might not seem like much, it can make a difference in the long run. On the good side, you also get a decent sound system and plenty of connectivity options for your smartphone. When it comes to safety, some options are standard, for other semi autonomous systems you have to pay more.

Performance

The performance features are impressive for the BMW. From just 2 liters, the German engineers have managed to extract up to 255 horsepower. This is coupled to an automatic transmission system that allows smooth gear changes at any speed.

On the other hand, the A-Class delivers just 188 horsepower and you’ll definitely feel the 70 HP difference. You can get more power, but this is available with higher, more expensive models of this car.

The Bottom Line

At the end of the day, it’s a matter of how you feel when you drive and how comfortable you want to get inside the cockpit. The BMW clearly  offers superior features, more driving aids, and a more sophisticated infotainment system, but the new Mercedes A-Class also comes with a few interesting and useful options that buyers might appreciate.
