2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class


2019 Volkswagen Jetta

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

As an all-new model, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class exceeds expectations of driving enthusiasts. It is a comfortable ride with the right amount of advanced features. The premium tech and performance are noteworthy, even though it is an entry-level luxury sedan. These are just some of the reasons why the A-Class is the one to beat in its segment. Even the impressive 2019 Volkswagen Jetta will find it difficult to match the A-Class’ prowess. Here is their comparison to see why.

Design & Style

The ultramodern design of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class gives the car an aggressive and athletic stance. The LED lighting details plus the clean lines gave it a sophisticated and attention-grabbing aura. The cabin is likewise treated with premium elements that easily captivate the eyes.

While the company was aiming for a timeless styling for the Jetta, it came out as bland and uninspiring. The only way to make people make a second glance is to have it in the brightest color which is the Habanero Orange.

Technology & Safety

The innovative infotainment system of the A-Class is both tasteful and user-friendly. It is equipped with an impressive audio system. The navigation system is so easy to use. It already has both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for seamless smartphone integration. As for its safety features, standard equipment includes airbags, attention assist, and a rearview camera.

Nice technology features of the Jetta are only available on higher trims. Otherwise, you will have a subpar audio system and basic graphics. Some of the safety features, like the adaptive cruise, comes standard on most competitors but not on the lower Jetta trims.


The A-Class has a turbocharged engine for a 188 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque. Athletic drivers will be enthralled with its sharp road performance. Its acceleration from 0-60 mph is clocked at only 6.4 seconds, making it one of the fastest in its class. It also has a nicely balanced braking system. It is impressive how it can smoothly stop even from a fast speed.

The Jetta comes with a 1.4-liter engine that delivers 147 horsepower. Although its performance is also impressive, it is not as fast on the road. It clocks 8.4 seconds to get from 0-60 mph which is at the middle, if not slow, on its class. While it has an excellent on-center feel, the steering can get a little rubbery and the chassis is not communicative.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta may have a lot of potentials but failed to come up with enough features to topple the A-Class down. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class proves that a car can have it all, even if it belongs to the entry-level segment. The solid performance, impeccable styling, and modern tech features are enough to impress anyone.
