Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan and Hatch Gone after 2022

Mercedes compacts leaving our dealers

  • Smallest Mercedes dropped in North America

  • GLA crossover will be brand’s entry point


The smallest Mercedes-Benz model is going away after model year 2022. The Mercedes-Benz A-Class, both sedan and hatchback versions, will disappear from Canadian showrooms, with the U.S. losing the sedan (the hatch wasn’t offered) as well.

A spokesperson for Mercedes-Benz Canada confirmed to us that the company had recently informed its dealer network of the change. “While the A-Class has been well received by our customers since its introduction in 2019, this decision is consistent with our ongoing effort to streamline our product portfolio. Canadian drivers will continue to enjoy a number of models that will serve as entry points into the world of Mercedes-Benz,” said the statement. News of the end of the A-Class in the US came from Automotive News.

Offered in Canada as the A250 hatch and Mercedes-AMG A 35 hatchback as well as the A 220 and A 35 sedan, while Mercedes-Benz says the model was received well by customers, “well” did not mean well enough to stay on the market. U.S. sales hit nearly 18,000 in the car’s first year but dropped to just over 8,000 in 2021.

With the change, the entry point into the Mercedes-Benz lineup will be the GLA SUV, with the CLA Coupe and GLB SUV starting at a price just a few thousand more than the A-Class.
