2020 Mercedes-Benz A-Class vs 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Serving McKinney, TX

Today's Mercedes-Benz sedan line includes numerous exciting possibilities for drivers in McKinney and surrounding communities to consider. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz A-Class is the entry-level sedan this year, and its fourth-generation launched only two years ago. The A-Class is frequently viewed in comparison to the C-Class. The C-Class is slightly larger, and it is also in its fourth generation. Further comparison of these two sedans is in order before you finalize your selection and drive away in your new Mercedes-Benz car.


Both of these sedans are loaded with an inline-4 turbo, 2.0-liter engine, but their performance capabilities differ. The 2020 A-Class provides you with 188 horsepower with acceleration up to 60 miles per hour in 7.7 seconds. It is available with a front-wheel-drive and a 4MATIC® all-wheel drive. The 2020 C-Class, in comparison, delivers 255 horsepower and achieves a speed of 60 miles per hour in 5.7 seconds. The same drivetrain options are available.


The A-Class and C-Class sedans are comparable at first glance. They share the same grille design, LED headlight shape, and lower front fascia. However, the C-Class's grille turns slightly upward, and its headlights are larger. Across the sides, the C-Class shows off sharper contour lines and these trends toward each other as they flow to the rear of the vehicle. At the rear, the headlight designs are significantly different, and both designs are appealing. Both of these vehicles are offered with a sunroof, dual exhaust finishers, heated side mirrors, and other items.


The interior design and features have a few essential differences. In the A-Class, the dashboard shows off two connected media screens. One of these holds the driver's gauges, and the other one contains the navigation system, ambient light controls, sound system, smart device integration, and other gear. Their flowing design adds modern flair to the interior. In the C-Class, these two screens are separated, and the infotainment system's screen is mounted slightly outside of the dashboard. These cars both have several assistive safety features, heated seats, multiple drive modes accessed via the center console, an MMI Touch controller, and more.
