The refreshed Mercedes-Benz A-Class maintains its youthful and dynamic essence while introducing a heightened level of comfort. This A-Class has redefined modern luxury within the compact segment, making a resounding statement.
The updated A-Class takes power, dynamism, and striking design to the next level. The front view is dominated by the forward-sloping bonnet, showcasing its bold character with two power bulges and a steep 'shark nose'. The newly redesigned radiator grille with its unique star pattern adds to the visual appeal, and the facia is refreshed with redesigned LED headlamps. For those who appreciate style and sportiness, the AMG Line offers optional high-gloss black painted light-alloy wheels in a multi-spoke design.
The rear design is equally captivating, featuring a redesigned rear diffuser and standard LED rear lights. These elements ensure a captivating presence, whether it's day or night. To complement the high-class exterior, customers have a variety of exterior paintwork options to choose from.
Revolutionary Interior Design
The interior of the new A-Class sets a new standard for modern luxury in the compact segment. The model range caters to individual preferences, with even the base variant offering high-quality comfort seats with new, three-dimensionally embossed ARTICO upholstery, emphasizing the sporty character of the vehicle.
The standout feature is the standard freestanding dual-screen display, with options for a 7-inch and a larger 10.25-inch display taking center stage. Alternatively, customers can choose two 10.25-inch displays with a widescreen appearance. The unique interior architecture creates a special lighting ambiance that exudes a futuristic charm.
Next-Generation User Experience
Both hardware and software in the new A-Class have seen significant advancements. The latest generation of MBUX is intuitive and capable of learning, providing a holistic and aesthetic experience. The driver and central displays can be customized with various display styles, modes, and color options, ensuring a tailored user experience.
Advanced Safety Features
The latest A-Class boasts updated safety assistance systems. The Driver Assistance Package includes features like Active Steering Control, which enhances the comfort of Lane Keeping Assist. The Parking Package offers 360-degree visualization for camera-assisted parking using 3D images, making parking a breeze.
Performance and Efficiency
In South Africa, the new A-Class offers a choice between petrol and diesel engines. The A 200, powered by a turbocharged 1332cc motor, delivers 120 kW and 250 Nm, with impressive fuel consumption figures ranging from 6.4 to 5.8 l/100km in hatchback guise and 6.3 to 5.7 l/100km in the saloon variant.
The A 200 d, equipped with a 2.0-litre turbo diesel powerplant, offers 110 kW and 320 Nm, with a frugal combined fuel consumption of 5.4 to 4.8 l/100km in accordance with the WLTP. Both variants provide an exhilarating driving experience while maintaining efficiency.
