A distinguishing factor about luxury cars is price. They are made for a particular market and do everything possible not to disappoint. Does the Mercedes A220d fit that bill?
The A220d is crafted on the same design as vehicles in the A-Class AMG line and you may not easily tell it apart when it is among peers. Mercedes describes it quite aptly as a sport-trim on the lower SE class.
Their chosen name being “lowered-end comfort suspension. This works to denote notes and attempt and desire to conquer across several class categories. In fact, the AMG range of cars works very well for drivers who are aiming at dynamic demands from their vehicles, raising above Mercedes’ comfort tradition.
The A220 does well to represent the two worlds. A ride in this car turns out to be comfortable enough and handles basic challenges relatively well. It is offered in four trims that include the Sport, Comfort, Eco and the higher end Individual. You cannot do any adjustments to any of these trims.
This car is a good and competitive hatchback that would fit in the shoes of the VW Golf GTI. A turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-liter is just one of your choices. It will give you an impressive 187bhp and displace 295lb ft. It isn’t a car that Mercedes-Benz strained too much to bring about but the result is still amazingly ok.
