2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class vs 2018 Audi A3

With the upcoming 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan, Mercedes-Benz has increased the variety and range of their catalog. Now, there is a more compact and more affordable sedan option ranked under the Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan. However, with a new model and build added to their stock, Mercedes-Benz and the A-Class sedan have also exposed themselves to a new line of competitors.

Other brand models below the range of the C-Class have now been squarely positioned against the Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan. How do these models manage as competitors? We’ll find out today by choosing the most compact model from the Audi catalog as an antagonist. That would be the Audi A3. It’s the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan vs the 2018 Audi A3 sedan!
