2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class vs. 2019 Volkswagen Golf


The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-class has been a popular model since its debut. People love it for its comfort, flexibility, and elegance. The 2019 model is no exception with its longer wheelbase and lighter framework. It retains all the lovely things that made this car a hit and then goes further than that.
The 2019 Volkswagen Golf has been a long-standing feature in the Volkswagen line-up. Over the years, the car has undergone a series of changes but the fundamental shape and performance have not changed much. Let us compare the 2019 Volkswagen Golf with the amazing 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Design & Style

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class features a sophisticated look with sharp and angular headlights. It comes with LED daytime running. These headlights are more than enough when it comes to night driving but for those who want a little more, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class gives you the option of Multibeam LED Headlights which come with individually actuated LED lights. The 2019 model features a larger lower central vent and the car is more sculpted than the model that came before. The interior is comfortable with a touch of luxury as one would expect from a Mercedes-Benz.

The 2019 Volkswagen Golf has more pronounced lines, moving further away from its original boxy shape. The traditional narrow grill that flares up into the curved headlights remains largely unchanged. The interior is comfortable even though a little plain. The seats are accentuated with red lines giving the car a touch of class.

Technology & Safety

The Mercedes-Benz A-Class comes with an array of tech to make the driving experience safer and smoother. These include Mercedes-Benz’s Pre-Safe Plus that can spot the possibility of a rear collision when the car is standing still. The software can also apply the brakes at such a moment to avoid the car being pushed into traffic. The A-Class also comes with Lane Keeping Assist to nudge the car back in case it wanders off the lane.
The 2019 Volkswagen Golf comes with a lot less technology. While the car comes with a driver assist package, it is far less intuitive and responsive compared to the system on the Mercedes-Benz A-Class. Overall, A-class leads by a long stretch when it comes to safety and technology.


The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class comes with a 2-liter turbo engine with sends power to either the front wheels or all four wheels. The engine is controlled by a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. This assures the driver of ample power at the tip of the fingertips. The A-Class is fast, nimble and remarkably responsive.

The Volkswagen golf, on the other hand, comes with a 1.4-liter turbo engine which is a drop from the 1.8-liter engine in the 2018 Golf. This obviously has an effect on performance and keen drivers are likely to notice that the 2019 Volkswagen Golf is not as nimble compared to the A-Class.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class is an undisputed winner in almost all categories. It is faster, nimbler and comes with a much better array of safety and comfort features. The Golf could improve in its suite of safety features as well as improve performance.
