Mercedes-Benz A-Class Review
The Mercedes-Benz production lines will soon be bringing the A-Class out, albeit with a little nip and tuck. The A-Class was launched in 2013 and now two years later, the premium hatchback gets a mid-life facelift. Globally the car is already on the sale, and now the Indian market will be seeing the car enter the market on December 8. Even in nomenclature there will be a change. With this, the A-Class diesel will let go of the CDI suffix and will instead be happy with a simple 'd'.
The A-Class facelift gets new trims for the dashboard, the display remains in the centre of the dash while the car now sports a new instrument cluster and a new display for the infotainment system. The infotainment system can link to Apple and Android devices and covers phone connectivity, navigation and music. It will also be easier to use. On Sport models and above, the screen is also bigger – eight inches now – one larger than the old model. That’s all the significant changes. In terms of comfort, all models get multiway adjustable seats for front occupants. It will come with ABS, EBD, ESP and seven airbags for safety.
One can look for a new arrow-shaped front bumper, the same diamond-patterned front grille, new LED headlamps carried over from the A45 AMG, different rear light clusters to highlight the sporty character of the car and stylish rear-integrated tailpipes.
The true difference between the two cars rears itself when it actually comes down to driving. The A-Class facelift will come with four different driving modes – Comfort, Sport, Eco and Individual. Power figures remain the same. It will continue with the 1.6-litre petrol engine producing 122bhp of power while the diesel 2.2-litre mill that pumps out 139bhp of power. The mills will be mated to the 7G-Tronic dual clutch gearbox powering the front wheels.
Price and Competition
The Mercedes A-Class competes with the BMW 1 Series, the Volvo V40 hatchback and the Mini Cooper D and is expected to be priced at about Rs 28 lakh in India.
