2020 Mercedes-Benz A-Class vs. 2022 2-Series in Fredericksburg, VA

Comparing the 2020 Mercedes-Benz A-Class vs. 2020 BMW 2-Series

Drivers seeking unparalleled performance are sure to find exactly what they need within the luxury class, which is home to fierce competition between athletic small cars from a variety of makers. Mercedes-Benz garners acclaim for their versatile A-Class, while BMW also warrants praise for their robust 2 Series. Both of these vehicles have a lot to consider beyond their incredible power and handling, so let’s take a closer look to see which one belongs in your garage.

Cabin Quality

Although the A-Class asks the most humble starting price of any vehicle in the Mercedes-Benz lineup, it still sports an impressively attractive cabin, even by luxury-class standards. Deluxe furnishings can be found throughout the quiet interior, from aluminum accents to plush leatherette seating. The front seats are thoughtfully bolstered to keep you in a prime riding position as you enjoy the A-Class’ brisk maneuverability, and all five seats promise generous cushioning for relaxed travels. Mercedes-Benz also ensures that everyone onboard will have plenty of legroom for outings of any duration. The 2 Series features some sporty styling of its own, and its front sport seats don’t seem out of place for a performance-oriented vehicle. Although the 2 Series offers a comfortable ride up front, critics voice concerns that the confining rear seats might make for a less than luxurious journey for taller passengers.

Modern Technology

The A-Class’ unique two-screen setup lends state-of-the-art style to its dashboard. A 7-inch screen behind the steering wheel displays your gauges and other essential information, while a 7-inch touchscreen in the center stack serves as your infotainment interface. This screen lets you quickly access the A-Class’ apps and tech features with prompt responses and intuitive menus, all via the streamlined Mercedes-Benz User Experience infotainment system. While the 2 Series looks sleek with its iDrive infotainment system and 6.5-inch display screen, you’ll need to pay extra to upgrade to a touchscreen. Android Auto® and Apple CarPlay® come standard in the A-Class, but those smartphone connectivity options are only available for an additional cost in the 2 Series.


As the most modestly-priced car in Mercedes-Benz’s family, the A-Class is also among the most affordable vehicles in the luxury small car class. It comes for a more approachable starting 77price than its BMW rival, and it maintains a considerable price difference even as you rise up these car’s respective trim ranges. Drivers who tend to log extensive miles on long commutes should also consider that the A-Class can glean more distance per mile on the highway than the 2 Series as well.
