The new Mercedes A Class 2018 is finally being introduced! Barely six years after the release of the new generation, which has been transformed into a premium compact with a well-filled order book, the new generation is already coming to our dealerships.
If the style does not revolutionize the genre, the evolutions are well visible from all angles. The Mercedes design evolves by adopting a more streamlined surface design. In practical terms, this results in newly designed doors that are much less tormented by sheet metal folds. The front part differs from the old model in its slimmer, sharply angled optical units, which can be combined with Multibeam LED technology (option of course). It consists of 18 individually controllable LEDs for adaptive and high-performance lighting.
The new Mercedes A-Class also features an extended wheelbase. It means that it now measures 4.42 m long compared to 4.25 m for the outgoing model!
An evolution compared to all Class A models
The taillights are now in two parts: it will not be possible to confuse it with the old one.
In addition to its aesthetic appeal, the Mercedes A 2018 Class will be able to count on a range of redesigned engines. For the launch, it will be necessary to choose between three different versions: A 200, A 250 and A 180d.
The Mercedes A 200 petrol has 163 horsepower compared to 156 hp for the outgoing model, with Co2 emissions limited to 120 g in the 7G-DCT dual-clutch transmission and 133 g in the 6-speed manual transmission. This 1.4-litre block has a cylinder cut-off system.
With a power rating of 224 horsepower, the A 250 Class is 141 g. The only diesel version of the launch, the A 180 d requires the 7G-DCT dual-clutch transmission, which allows it to play the sobriety game with a mixed consumption of 4.1 L and Co2 emissions of 108 g. This A 180d Class has 116 hp and 260 Nm of torque.
Safety is also progressing on Mercedes cars with many new additional security features: Active Emergency Brake Assist, PRE-SAFE® PLUS, Active DISTRONIC Distance Control Assistant, Active Emergency Stop Assistant and Active Lane Change Assistant.
Users will also enjoy the new, customizable MBUX multimedia system from Mercedes-Benz User Experience with comprehensive touch control concept. A best seller, there is no doubt about it!
