The 2019 BMW 1-Series is slated to arrive this year with a redesigned engine lineup, exterior stylings, and interior features. Although it’s arriving as a hatchback, it was designed to compete with the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan— among others in the luxury market. So, how does it stack up to this new Mercedes-Benz sedan? Compare the Mercedes-Benz A-Class vs. BMW 1-Series below to find out!

A-Class vs. 1-Series: Performance

The new A-Class and BMW 1-Series are both front-wheel drive vehicles offering peppy engine power. Compared to the BMW 1-Series, however, the A-Class has a stronger base-level engine. The A-Class Sedan starts off with a 188-hp 2.0L turbo inline-4 engine, while the 1-Series Hatch will get a base-level a 140-hp 1.5L inline-4. xDrive — BMW’s all-wheel drive system — will be available with select engines, and the 4MATIC® all-wheel drive system is standard on the A 220 4MATIC®.

A-Class vs. 1-Series: Luxury Features

At first glance, updates to the BMW 1-Series have seemingly put it on par with the A-Class in terms of technology. Both include a digital instrument cluster and multimedia display with voice commands, natural language understanding, and a controller. There are a few features, however, you’ll only find on the A-Class, including:

  • Touch Controls for the Steering Wheel: Steering wheel-mounted Touch Controls allow you to configure the dash display and head unit via the left and right tablet-like pads.
  • Available Augmented Reality for Navigation: Using a forward facing camera, available MB Navigation displays a live feed of the streets ahead while Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) superimposes street names and other useful information to help you navigate Norwalk.
  • Available PRESAFE® Sound: This available system is an extension of PRESAFE®, and plays a “pink noise” via the sound system that stimulates a natural reflex reaction in the human rear.
  • Available Route-Based Speed Adaptation: Available MB Navigation and DISTRONIC® adaptive cruise control work in tandem to intelligently adjust your speed based on topography, roads, and more.
  • Available 64-Color Ambient LED Interior Lighting: Set the tone for your drive through Weston by choosing one of 64 colors for the interior lighting system.
