On the Road
The A220 is much more entertaining to drive than expected. Although its horsepower rating is lower than its competitors, the small sedan launches quickly from a stop with strong acceleration.

The dual-clutch gearbox shifts quickly and the 4MATIC all-wheel drive keeps wheels from slipping, even at full throttle. The A220 has a nice exhaust note as well — it never sounds like the engine is being overworked, which can be the case when pushing smaller four-cylinder engines.
