The 2020 Mercedes-Benz A-Class is on top of the list for the most applauded luxury entry-level sedans. Many people find the perfect mix of comfortable and luxurious features as the foremost reason why other cars cannot compare to it. It is also impressive how the world-renowned car maker is able to fit advanced car technologies to its already impressive set of features.
Another promising vehicle that is worth to explore is the 2020 Ford Taurus. How will it match against the A-Class? Here is a comprehensive comparison to see if it can be as exciting as the number car in its segment.
2020 Mercedes-Benz A-Class has been designed to impress. The exterior features have ultramodern characteristics that make it relevant to today’s design standards. No one can resist taking a closer look at the clean lines and LED lighting that give it an aggressive stance.
As for the Taurus, you can definitely see how Ford tried to be crafty on the exterior details. The chrome tips, for example, looks vibrant and updated its looks for this year’s model.
The MBUX infotainment system of the A-Class works impressively great. It is both a tasteful and simple to use system that can keep the driver informed while the rest of the passengers entertained. There is a standard 10.3-inch display that gives out clear graphics that are useful for navigation purposes.
The Taurus has a dated interior so it is great that the infotainment system has been updated. It is usable and flexible enough for every kind of driver. There is no built-in navigation but it is available through Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. All connectivity features, including Bluetooth®, works well too.
A sharper driving experience is always a guarantee with the A-Class and its turbocharged 188-ho engine. Accelerating form 0-60 in just 6.4 seconds can make any athletic individuals feel excited. The engine is so responsive and it is backed up by a reliable braking system.
The Taurus has a 288 hp 3.5-liter V6 engine that is supposed to deliver a great performance. The problem, however, is that the capabilities of its V6 engine feels like a mid-90’s V8. It can go fast and reach 60 from 0 mph in 5.4 seconds then it will start to lose steam after that.
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz A-Class has a good balance of solid power, braking reliability, and lively drivability. That mix plus the fact that it looks great both outside and inside the cabin made it a tough car to beat even with the 2020 Ford Taurus’ V6 engine.
