Lord doesn’t need to buy you a Mercedes Benz, you can now do it yourself. Get to the front of the class with the NEW Mercedes Benz A-Class at Park Place Arlington.
This is part of a #mamachallenge sponsored series to show that class, convenience and community come together perfectly at Park Place Motorcars Arlington.
Who wouldn’t want to drive a Mercedes Benz?
Actually, I can answer that for you…
There are basically two camps: those that don’t think they can afford it and those who can’t get over the dial vs. a touch screen interface.
I actually was both.
While I loved the idea of a Mercedes, it was only likely if I won the lottery or opted for my mortgage not to be paid for a few months:). Plus, trying to command everything inside the car from the radio to the A/C from on singular dial, was too much for my patience (and my dexterity to handle). A part of the ieverything generation, I wanted to touch the screen and it responds just like that.
However, until last month I didn’t think that both of these hurdles that kept me from my dream car would no longer reign true until the new Mercedes Benz A-Class rolled into town.
The New Face of Mercedes Benz: The A-Class
A new series to the American fleet, the A-Class is now first in line of the Mercedes brand. A four-door sedan works hard, plays hard and looks a lot like its predecessors at a more affordable price point. That’s not just compared among Mercedes, but also compared to many other car brands considered less luxury and more “reasonable cars.”
…Sounded dreamy…until I got inside.
That’s when I literally let out a school-girl, Taylor-Swift-style-shrill as I slid behind that soft, rich dark interior. I was in a Mercedes AND there was a huge touchscreen dashboard that I could touch with my index finger and magic happened.
Then it went next level.
Especially a new friend that comes with the car…perfectly named – what else? Mercedes. And she does whatever you need her too! Unlike those other unnamed auto assistants, you talked to this gal more like a friend and a lot less like a machine.
More Reasons to Love the Mercedes Benz A-Class
Described as “a new mobile device that’ll really move you,” the A-class is top of the class in many areas and in some ways I wonder if Mercedes has actually given some of us a reason to choose this automobile versus some of its other lineups. (I’m okay with that, right?)
Outfitted with the new Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX), the A-Class is the first to give you the tech you want including intuitive speech that learns you for a truly customized ride every time you get behind the wheel (and even for your passengers too.
But of course there’s more:
- With ever-changing “seat kinetics” the A-class sedan is always modifying how your fit to ensure you’re comfortable but also riding at the optimum driving position.
- With wireless charging for your phone and five (count that) USB ports in the front and back of the car, everyone has a place to plug in.
- Need help parking? Yep, press the button and roll in VIP style with a multi-camera Surround View System with hands-free Active Parking Assist
- Yes, there’s an APP for that – and the app for this baby keeps it all in check. From keeping up with updates, autostart, unlock/lock and much more, you can work your car from your fingertips.
The best part – When it comes to performance, the A-class stands for “athletic, agile and active.” With turbo power, seven speeds, Dynamic Select four drive modes, and three suspension options, the A 220 and all-wheel-drive A 220 4MATIC Sedans turn 188 horses and 221 lb-ft of torque into rapid response and full-time fun.
And yes, all that starting at $32,500?
You’ll also be surprised with the new A Class. Not like “oh, that’s nice” surprised, but “drop your mouth and do a double take” kinda-surprised.
While I personally love me Benz, you can take off in Land Rover, Lexus or other favorite cars from Park Place. The advantage of that is you get all the benefits of Park Place service and experience and in a car that you love that works with your budget.
