What is the knocking noise I hear when turning at low speeds?

I have a 2018 Mercedes-Benz B-Class. When turning the steering wheel, I get a light knocking from somewhere - but only at low speed. What could it be? The mileage is about 5000. Thank you.

Reads like a problem that needs immediate investigation. The A-Class is front-wheel drive so the sound could be linked to an issue with the constant velocity (CV) joints (which connect to the driveshaft). Alternatively, it may be an issue with the steering rack or tie rods. Whatever the cause, you should get it checked by a qualified mechanic.
