Edmunds Senior Writer Mark Takahashi got behind the wheel of the all-new 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class to answer a few questions. He wasn't a fan of the last "affordable" Benz, the CLA, and needed to know if this $30,000 sedan is deserving of the Mercedes badge. Also, he had to find out how much better the A-Class is than the CLA.

In the end, Mark was duly impressed, proclaiming the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class the new class leader.
