Which is Better: The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe or the Mercedes-Benz A-Class?

Performance

Although both the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe and Mercedes A-Class come equipped with 2.0L turbocharged engines, the former articulates substantially stronger performance numbers with 40 more horsepower and 37 more lb-ft of torque over its contemporary. On the straight, the 2 Series Gran Coupe reaches 60 miles per hour more than a second quicker than the A-Class.

Furthermore, the 2 Series Gran Coupe standardizes all-wheel drive traction for elevated traction and handling. The A-Class, on the other hand, only offers all-wheel drive as an available option.

Interior

Alongside exemplary performance, both BMW and Mercedes honed their reputations with premium interiors. One can draw similarities between the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe and Mercedes A-Class as they both feature standard Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control and Apple CarPlay®. In a more fundamental sense, however, the 2 Series Gran Coupe proves to be the more practical choice with 12.0 cu-ft of cargo space over the 8.6 cu-ft of the A-Class.

Safety

You will discover useful safety features in both the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe and the Mercedes A-Class, namely Forward Collision Warning, to boost your confidence wherever your luxury sedan takes you. However, BMW integrates several advanced features, namely Lane Departure and Active Blind Spot Detection, that only come as premium options on the A-Class.

Complimentary Maintenance

Although this applies to all BMW models, the 2 Series Gran Coupe offers 3 years or 36,000 miles of complimentary maintenance for a worry-free ownership experience. Mercedes offers no such ownership benefit to A-Class drivers.
