Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the BMW 228 Gran Coupe. The Mercedes-Benz A-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 228 Gran Coupe.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz A-Class as you will with the BMW 228 Gran Coupe, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW 228 Gran Coupe. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mercedes-Benz A-Class and the BMW 228 Gran Coupe have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class is about the same width as the BMW 228 Gran Coupe. When looking at overall length, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW 228 Gran Coupe.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW 228 Gran Coupe.

Performance
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class has less horsepower than the BMW 228 Gran Coupe, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz A-Class and the BMW 228 Gran Coupe.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 228 Gran Coupe.
