The A-Class competes against the BMW 2-Series and Audi A3, which are other entry-level sedans from German automakers.
The 2-Series Gran Coupe is new, and rivals the CLA- or A-Class, but the BMW doesn’t look as cohesive as either.
The Audi A3 is very aged, a new version is on the way.
The Acura ILX is the most affordable entry-level luxury car, although it’s much older and also on its way out.
Same goes for the Lexus IS (we’re spotting a trend now) that’s bigger than the A-Class, but it costs about the same before it bows out sometime soon.
The CLA-Class is based on the A-Class—and it’s new!—and is more stylish but also more expensive.
