5 reasons to buy the 2021 Mercedes-Benz A220

1. Commute ready

Do you zip from the suburbs into your city office? The 2021 Mercedes-Benz A220 will make your commute easy, no matter what the weather. The 2021 A220 comes standard with a 188-hp 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will accelerate zero to 60 in about 6.1 seconds (according to the manufacturer). All-wheel drive, available on the A220 4Matic trim, is an excellent choice if you have to get into the office even on snowy or icy days. Plus, the front seats are so comfortable that you (almost) won't mind sitting in traffic.

2. Luxury feel

Want to impress your boss or your buddies? The 2021 A220 is up to the task. Of course, it has the Mercedes-Benz badge, but it also has the luxury feel and comfort to back up everything the brand represents. Synthetic leather seats, a panoramic sunroof, and alloy wheels come standard, while additional luxury upgrades, like heated or ventilated seats and genuine leather, are available — so keep an eye out for those if you want to really elevate your ride.

3. Stellar speaker system

Do you double as a D.J. when you're not in the office? If so, you'll appreciate that the 2021 A220 comes with great audio options. The base trim has an eight-speaker stereo system, enough to really feel the music in this small car. But if you're a true music lover, look for an A220 with the optional Burmester® audio system, one of the most high-end auto audio setups available.

4. Blind spot monitoring

For the 2021 model year, Mercedes-Benz made blind spot monitoring standard on all A220s. That's helpful whether you're switching lanes on the highway or navigating through city traffic. Other standard driver assist features include emergency braking and driver attention monitoring. Look out for steering assist, active parking assist, adaptive cruise control, and more as all these features are available options.

5. Connectivity

Love the latest tech? While touchscreens and infotainment systems have become expected in vehicles, the 2021 A220 system stands out for being intuitive and easy to use. It comes standard with a seven-inch touchscreen, with a 10.3-inch screen available with the premium package. Standard Apple Carplay® and Android Auto integration make it easy to stay connected, while two USB-C ports ensure your phone will never lose charge.
