2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class vs. 2019 Fiat 124 Spider

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class is a sedan wearing a prestigious badge. Sedans may not be as appealing in today’s market, but the A-Class is not bound to fail expectations. Too much effort has been spent to come up with a completely redesigned model that will simply change the numbers for sedan sales.

As far as small cars are concerned, the 2019 Fiat 124 Spider is an attractive contender. Will it charm its way to win against the A-Class?

Design & Style

You can say that the new A-Class is a modernized sedan. On its front is a lowered hood that is flanked with slim headlights and the large Mercedes-Benz star on the signature grille. The exterior is also defined by character lines that run across the shoulder and flowing subtly over the front wheel arch.  Inside is just as modern with the large glass surface for the infotainment screen.

The Spider has a prominent honeycomb grille and eyelid-shaped headlights. While these features are head turners, most of the details are not too obvious. This may be because of the simple sports-car shape that the Spider has adapted.

Technology & Safety

The A-Class utilizes the innovative MBOX for its infotainment. The entire setup looks tasteful especially with the lighting displays and the superb audio system. Customizable tech does not end there as there are also sophisticated driver aids for its safety features.

The Spider’s infotainment is borrowed from Mazda. While the features are simple, the knob-based interface may look naïve especially because it does not come with the latest smartphone integration. Driver aids are also optional but very limited.


The turbocharged engine of the A-Class for a 188 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque is enough to offer a sharp road performance. The acceleration capability is impressive at 6.4 seconds from 0-60 mph. The balanced braking system is helpful and instills confidence when driving at higher speeds. The car also shifts smoothly and has more than a sufficient grip on the road.

As a light car, steering and handling are the strengths of the Spider. It is equipped with a 1.4-liter, four-cylinder engine that produces up to 164 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. It is noticeable how the tiny engine feels weak during low acceleration and will only feel eager during high revolutions. Although it has minimal body roll when turning, mid-corner bumps will bother the chassis.

The Bottom Line

Even though the 2019 Fiat 124 Spider tried its best to come up with the best combination of style, power, and technology, it failed to match the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class. The Spider should improve more on its performance and it will also help if it gets the proper upgrades for its infotainment.

As for the A-Class, it is a beautiful piece of a car that is gifted with lots of techs and an impressive performance.
