Acceleration & Pick-Up

Editor's take : The acceleration produced by the A-Class is good and even the power delivery is fairly linear and smooth. The double clutch improves the acceleration.

Both the petrol and diesel engines are mated with an advanced dual clutch 7G-DCT automatic transmission gearbox. Its petrol variant takes only about 9.2 seconds to breach the 100 Kmph mark from a standstill . At the same time, it can attain a top speed of close to 202 Kmph, which is rather incredible. On the other hand the diesel engine can propel the hatchback from 0-100 in about 10.6 seconds from a standstill. However, it enables the vehicle to reach a top speed of 190 Kmph.

It comprises of 4-cylinders, 16-valves based on double overhead camshaft valve configuration, which displaces 2143cc.

On the other hand, its petrol variant is fitted with a 1.6-litre in-line engine that has high pressure direct fuel injection system featuring piezo injectors. It has 4-cylinders and 16-valves based on the same DOHC valve configuration with variable valve timing and control. It has a displacement capacity of 1595cc and is integrated with a turbocharger.
