Mercedes-Benz A-Class Highlights
The new Mercedes A-Class is a cosmetically upgraded version of the old car. The green-colored car is powered by the 2.1-liter, four-cylinder diesel engine that churns out 136bhp of power and 300Nm of peak torque. The car continues to use a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. Other cosmetic changes include the 16-inch wheels, the all-black finish to the grille, redesigned tail lamps and new badging. With new bumpers, the car comes with all-LED headlamps.
The interior updates of the A-Class include new instrumentation, which is user-friendly but doesn’t look as stylish as the previous one. The dashboard comes with a new finish, and the signature central display as part of the COMAND system is one of the key elements in the A’s interiors. The features of the Mercedes A-Class include a sunroof, a comprehensive driver interface, a single-zone climate control system, six airbags, automatic headlamps, and cruise control. It also comes with powered seats for the driver, a reversing camera and attention assist with normal and sensitive settings. The boot of the new A-Class is still not very roomy, but it is practical for two people. There’s enough amount of storage like cup and bottle holders. In the rear, however, there is the limited head, shoulder and knee room.
The car comes with Comfort, Eco, Sport, and Individual modes. The Eco and the Comfort modes are identical, as they work to extract the best possible fuel economy. In the Sport mode, the steering weighs up, the suspension stiffens and the engine character changes. The Individual mode, on the other hand, allows the person to tune the steering, suspension and engine response as per the liking. The Mercedes A-Class competes with the BMW 1 Series and the Audi A3.
