Comparison: 2020 Audi A3 vs. 2020 Mercedes-Benz A-Class
This is a very solid comparison article from Auto123 with the A-Class and A3.
It's interesting how they view that the A3 is aging compared to the A-Class.
Advantage Audi A3
Audi has experience on its side, meaning it's a slightly more mature, more comfortable and quieter car.
Advantage Mercedes-Benz A-Class
Mercedes has youth and technology on its side. The MBUX system is amazing and efficient. The driving is nervier and more dynamic, especially when you move up in the model range. The hatchback model also offers much more space for luggage.
As far as space, prices, warranties and the AWD are concerned, both models rate about the same.
The Mercedes stands out for its modernity and advanced technology for an entry-level model. The Audi A3 is showing some signs of aging, although it’s still a pleasure to drive. A drink from the fountain of youth would be in order. In the meantime, the A-Class sits at the front of the class.
