Mercedes-Benz A-Class

Those looking for a more luxurious kind of feel and value the overall experience of a car, will love the 2020 Mercedes-Benz A-Class. 

With a starting price at just $32,000, this sedan will provide a very stable and composed drive. It’s very easy to control, and has top-notch suspension as well as turbo torque, giving the car a much better kick.

It has very comfortable and supporting power seats with memory, making it even more ideal for long road trips. It’s also worth mentioning that for a small car, it’s quite roomy inside.

Many models come in a refined night-black or dark color with a similar interior to match. However, they do come in other colors such as Jupiter Red, Polar White, Denim Blue Metallic, and much more. It has a more pristine and sophisticated look than that of the 2020 Acura ILX.

The Mercedes-Benz also comes with simple and user-friendly technology, much similar to that of the Acura but with more advanced gadgets. It has a widescreen display with Apple Car Play and Android Auto on all trims.

Additionally, the Mercedes safety features are one to beat, as its drivers will have access to the adaptive cruise feature which can help one steer, stop-and-go in traffic, as well as slow for an offramp. That’s not even including safety sensors to protect hearing before a crash and parking assistance.

More advanced features include wireless charging, five USB-C ports for each passenger, stellar audio and a climate control system.

Overall, this car is ideal for those looking for a great feel and experience, especially with the sports style steering wheel.

Just as a note, because there are so many options for this model, the price can go up to as much as $50,000.

2020 Acura ILX


Those looking for a family-friendly car without the minivan look might consider the 2020 Acura ILX. This compact sports sedan is fuel-efficient, with 34 mpg on the highway. It’s also great on overall handling, ownership cost, as well as advanced safety features, all for an amazing starting price of just $26,895. 

Standard features include push-start ignition, active sound control, multi-view rear camera, as well as driver assistance technology with AcuraWatch.

The AcuraWatch includes collision mitigation braking, forward collision warning, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure warning, and much more. 

An advanced navigation system is also included, complete with the option to use 3D viewing, voice navigation, as well as an additional link with the Real-Time Traffic feature.

For the upcoming chilly months, drivers will fancy the standard heat-front seats. Apple Car Play and android integration is also a plus.
