The A-class has grown-up and is more comfortable than ever before. It completely remodels the luxury in the compact class, and changes interior design. With its new technology the A-Class not only takes first place thanks to MBUX which is the Mercedes-Benz User Experience: it also gives a number of functions that were previously the preserve of the luxury class. In certain driving situations, it is able to drive semi-automatic for the first time, and MULTIBEAM LED headlamps are available on request.
The interior of the new A-Class is completely redefined with its modern look. Mercedes-Benz has taken a completely new approach, with it now feeling spacious. The unique interior architecture is shaped in particular by the design of the dashboard: for the first time a cowl above the cockpit has been completely dispensed with. As a result, the wing-shaped main body of the dashboard extends from one front door to the other. The Widescreen display is completely free-standing. The air vents in a sporty turbine-look are another highlight.
All the new A-Class models are powered by a brand new efficient engines: Two new four-cylinder petrol engines are available at first launch. Innovations in the M 282 with a displacement of 1.4 l and up to 120 kW include cylinder shutoff and the delta shape of the cylinder head. The second new petrol engine is the M 260 with a displacement of 2.0 litres, 165 kW and 350 Nm. New features include CAMTRONIC for the intake camshaft. Both petrol engine series have a particulate filtre as standard.
