2019 Mercedes-Benz A 250 Hatchback Starts at $35,990

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A250 will start at $35,990 in Canada while models equipped with 4Matic all-wheel drive will start at $37,990. The new entry-level A-Class was launched in Canada last night at a private event in Toronto.

Mercedes-Benz Canada employees, media, and over 2,000 potential buyers gathered for a night of celebration and loud music with the A-Class taking center stage. The house was packed with a much younger audience than what you would normally see at a Mercedes-Benz event, a clear indication of the demographic targeted by the new A 250.

Announced last February, the 2019 A-Class will be the first of its kind in Canada. It will replace the B-Class in M-B’s Canadian lineup and will be offered in both a hatchback and sedan version. The U.S., meanwhile, won’t get the hatch. The A-Class sedan will arrive later down the road.

The A 250 Hatchback is powered by a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbo engine with 221 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Both the front-wheel drive and 4Matic AWD models get a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

All models get a panoramic glass sunroof, 17-inch wheels, keyless start, rain sensing wipers, heated windshield washer system, the Mercedes Me app and the new Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system housed in a 7-inch screen center display.

Mercedes-Benz A Class

MBUX is a brand-new multimedia system that will find its way into every new Mercedes-Benz vehicle starting with the A-Class. With advanced voice command features that give drivers the ability to adjust settings using natural language while also using artificial intelligence to adapt to the driver’s individual preferences.

With MBUX, you can essentially communicate with the car like you were having a natural conversation. Using the command Hey, Mercedes, you are connected to the system and can then say things like “it’s cold inside” which will turn the heat up.

Should You Buy a 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class?

Optional equipment and packages includes features such as 18-inch wheels, an AMG styling package, heated steering wheel, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and dual 10.25-inch screens replacing the single 7.0-inch standard screen for the MBUX system. These two screens turn the A-Class’ interior into a very luxurious place with a design that reminds us of the E-Class and S-Class interiors.

The brand-new 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class hatchback is now on sale in Canada.
