Introducing the Mercedes-Benz A-Class
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class offers excellent levels of comfort and luxury, boasting an assertive and stylish re-designed exterior, alongside a radically reinvented, state-of-the-art interior that is full of the latest technology.
It is available as both the popular Hatchback and the stylish Saloon, depending on your bodystyle preference.
Efficient petrol and diesel engines power the A-Class range and there is also a plug-in hybrid variant of both the Hatchback and the Saloon, the A 250 e.
Following on from the Mercedes-Benz design philosophy of sensual purity, the A-Class features a sharp, detailed style that replicates the premium standard we have become accustomed to from the Mercedes-Benz range.
A sharper, sleeker body is utilised for both beauty and function, due to the car's minimal drag coefficient, which is excellent for a hatchback. This means the car is more efficient cutting through the air, allowing for greater economy. The Saloon version is also available if you require slightly more practicality.
A larger, more dominant grille with the iconic 3-pointed star helps further aid aerodynamics too, complemented with a more angular headlight and taillight design. As standard you can expect 16-inch alloy wheels, although selected models can be specified with larger 19-inch alloy wheels for those wanting to make more of a statement.
Technology and Safety
It is usually range-topping Mercedes-Benz models that showcase the company's new technology first. However, despite the A-Class being the entry-level Mercedes-Benz model, it is the first to feature the company's brand-new state-of-the-art digital instrument panel and infotainment set-up. This comprises of either a 10.25-inch and 7-inch screen, or a pair of 10.25-inch screens, depending on model chosen.
The usual wraparound dashboard has gone, instead opting for clean, simplistic set of screens for a modern and space-age feel. Being combined with turbine style fans for the air-conditioning and ergonomic switchgear, the A-Class interior is one of the most striking on the market.
Clever technology such as voice command and enhanced connectivity ensure the A-Class features one of the most appealing hatchback and saloon interior experiences on sale.
Engines and Performance
Engine choices are plentiful in the Mercedes-Benz A-Class range, both available in petrol and diesel fuel variants. There is also a plug-in hybrid version to further complement the range.
A 1.3-litre petrol engine is available with either 134bhp (A 180) or 161bhp (A 200). These petrol engines return up to 47mpg.
If you are on the hunt for a diesel engine you can choose between the A 180 d, A 200 d and A 220 d; all featuring a powerful 2.0-litre engine with power outputs of 114, 148 and 187bhp respectively. Diesel variants can return up to 62mpg.
For those who seek more performance, there is the AMG range of A-Class vehicles to choose from.
Finally a plug-in hybrid (A 250 e) offers a combined power output of 215bhp and up to 282mpg combined; a fantastic option in terms of efficiency
