The new Mercedes Benz A Class A220 is out and it makes a big impression at an affordable price point. The A-Class is sharp inside and out, offering a less cramped back seat, and exterior body features that are proportionate to the vehicle. If you like a more sporty look, the AMG package offers  sharper angles in the bumpers, a slightly lower suspension and the stunning diamond-block grille. The seats are extremely comfortable, and you have great visibility over the hood as well. Equipped with the 2.0L Inline 4 engine pushing out 188 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque, sent to all four wheels by way of a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (front-wheel drive is available, too). The A-Class isn't just tech-forward, it's one of the most technologically advanced Mercedes-Benz vehicles across the lineup, attracting a younger audience with all the features that it does offer. Base models make do with two 7-inch screens on the dashboard, but I believe the pair of 10.25-inch screens are damn near mandatory, even though they're part of the $2,100 Premium Package. The instrument cluster offers incredible variety, letting me swap out each gauge for different information screens while displaying the navigation map in the middle. All that is adjusted through the touchpad on the left side of the steering wheel, a system that's devilishly easy to master with minimal distraction.

Mercedes-Benz's new MBUX (say each letter, don't call it "M-Bucks") infotainment system is a beaut. It takes all the capabilities of the old COMAND system and gives it a prettier, more responsive wrapper while throwing Apple CarPlay and Android Auto into the mix. The screen is finally touch-capable, so you can ignore the center console's touchpad if it's not your speed, but it can also be manipulated using the second thumbpad on the right side of the steering wheel. If you do use the touchscreen, keep a lens cloth on hand to keep the screen free of smudges.
