2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class vs. 2019 Fiat 124 Spider

If you are choosing between a 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class and a 2019 Fiat 124 Spider, then you are most probably after owning a charming little car. It would be perfect; however, if you will have a small car that does not only look nice but also performs. It would be such a challenge to make a decision about which car to have, given that these cars are both rated high in their class.

Design & Style

One may expect for the A-Class to be fragile since it is a tiny vehicle. Its exterior says otherwise because it still managed to look sporty and confident with the modern and luxurious design details. The low hood with slim headlights perfectly matches the large Mercedes star on the signature grille. The interior is also just as attractive with the modern and premium details.

The collaboration between Fiat and Mazda made the interesting exterior for the 124 Spider possible. It has that nostalgic air to it with the style that borrows the looks of 1960 roadsters. It is stylish but not flashy.

Technology & Safety

The A-Class is a real standout when it comes to in-car tech. It is fully equipped with all the necessities for an entertaining and informed drive. The forward-thinking infotainment system makes it a better car even with the standard equipment. The healthy set of features already comes with the latest Mercedes-Benz system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth®, and a vast array of safety tech that are available as standard or optional.

Mazda took care of the 124 Spider’s infotainment. The native system is nice and easy to operate but the simple interface looks and feels very dated. It does have a navigation system but it would take a while to get accustomed to it. The tech features are reasonable but one should not expect to have a modern touch to any of its standard equipment.


The Mercedes-Benz A-Class is aided by a 2.0-liter engine for an impressive 188 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque. It is more than enough to make it fast without feeling overworked. The responsive chassis is complemented with a nicely-balanced brake pedal to make smooth stops that are never jumpy.

Even at the higher trims, the 124 Spider looks underwhelming with only up to 164 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. It only feels eager at higher speeds but watch out for mid-corner bumps as they tend to make the chassis feel unsettled.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Fiat Spider may look the part of being a stylish car but the rest of its characteristics look mediocre as compared to the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class.
