Follow my article of the new reveal of the new Mercedes A Class, the German brand has today revealed prices and specification as said car has now gone on sale. It’s priced from £25,800, which will give you a diesel, whereas the petrol models start from £27,500. What’s included though? Read on to find out.
Mercedes-Benz states that every model will come with a “high specification as standard”, which is certainly a bold claim. In fairness, it’s had to argue with ze Germans as even the base model SE has twin 7″ displays, including a central touchscreen that features the MBUX multimedia system. This system has voice recognition, which isn’t anything new, but you can wake it up simply by uttering the words ‘hey Mercedes’ – a bit like saying ‘ok Google’.
The SE also features comfort suspension, 16″ alloys, DAB radio, Artico leather and Bertrix fabric upholstery; Active Lane Keeping Assist; Speed Limit Assist; Keyless-Go starting function; and air conditioning. Not too shabby then.
Step up to the Sport trim, and you’ll benefit from LED high performance lights, 17″ alloys, Artico and Fléron fabric upholstery; and automatic climate control. The AMG Line adds to this further with 18″ alloys, AMG styling, Artico and Dinamica microfibre upholstery, and three-spoke sports steering wheel.
What About The Engines?
There will be three engines available from launch – one diesel and two petrol. The diesel features in the 180d, and has a displacement of 1.5 litres, offering 114bhp and 260Nm of torque. 0-62 comes in 10.5 seconds, with a top speed of 125mph, and it offers a combined mpg figure of 68.9mpg.
The A200 features 1.4 litre petrol, which offers 161bhp with 250Nm of torque. This delivers 51.4mpg on a combined run, but interestingly, the performance stats were not included. The A250 features a larger – 2.0 litre – engine, which is able to offer 221bhp with 350Nm of torque. This is able to hit 62mph in just 6.2 seconds, and will continue to a top speed of 155mph – combined mpg is 45.6.
The new Mercedes A Class is now available to buy with prices starting from £25,800.
