2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class vs. 2019 Volkswagen Beetle

The sedans from before have evolved so much and have comfortably become relevant to the vehicle preferences of this generation. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class is a great example of this evolution. The latest A-Class excels in being a modern sedan that is well-loved and accepted by a lot of people.

While the A-Class pushed sedans back to the limelight, the original people’s car is approaching its end. The 2019 Volkswagen Beetle is said to be on its final production and all that will be left are the fondest memories that are brought about by its retro look.

Design & Style

The A-Class sports the traditional sedan silhouette. For this year, it is given a long hood and slim headlights in order to make it look relevant and a bit sporty. The subtle design changes on the exterior are highlighted by the prominent Mercedes-Benz badge at the front.  The cabin, on the other hand, remains attractive especially with the addition of ambient lighting.

The most distinctive feature of the Beetle is its iconic shape that is instantly recognizable. The 2019 version is more business-like than the classic Bug and Beetle. Although it is endearing, it is admittedly plain and boring to look at. Even the interior has held on to the past with its last-generation materials.

Technology & Safety

The digital dashboard of the MBUX on the new A-Class has dazzling graphics and a stylish appearance. It has an advanced voice-recognition system that runs along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Everything in the audio and navigation system is customizable. The driver aids are also modern and active safety features come as worthy upgrades.

Although it is very easy to use, the infotainment features of the Beetle are far from advanced. It does have the latest smartphone integration but only on higher trims. The rearview camera, rear cross-traffic alert, and blind-spot monitoring are standard driver aids.

Performance

The A-Class has a 188 hp engine for sharp road performance. It may not have big power specs but the A-Class does have a capable chassis that is responsive and respectably quick. The brake pedal is not jumpy and it is immediately intuitive.

The Beetle has a 2.0-liter engine that is good for up to 174 hp. It allows strong acceleration but deceleration may take a lot of effort. This is mainly because the brakes are not too quick in giving a response.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Volkswagen Beetle has that loveable classic look that most people found charming. All in all, it lacks the qualities that can help it take down the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class. The Beetle sadly held on to its classic roots, especially on its technology. Although it improved its performance, it is not enough as the A-Class is a well-rounded vehicle that excels not only in performance but also in the tech department.
