Overview

In the entire automobile industry very few names succeed in defining the industry by being synonymous to excellence and innovation. Mercedes Benz is most certainly one of them. Over the decades of its rule over the International automobile market, the German auto giant Mercedes Benz has surely become a symbol of constant anticipation among the auto enthusiasts. Some cars launched by the company happen to be class defining and trend setting, while others happen to offer unmatched excellence in performance, comfort as well as innovation. Going by this amazing rate of engineering, the company once again came out to offer the world another jewel with its Mercedes Benz A Class hatchback . As the company cited the interesting reference of the letter A to awesomeness, the car stands up to the tag in offering, what happens to be the next big thing from the Mercedes Benz after the Mercedes Benz G Class and Mercedes Benz S Class. The vehicle has amazing design aesthetics where the entire framework seems to be nothing less than a perfect impression of the wind flow. While most vehicles happen to offer perfect aerodynamic aspects in the design framework not many succeed in managing to offer a perfect design statement, which can explain the vehicle’s aerodynamics perfectly. The frontage has been bestowed with a diamond shaped radiator grille, which adds on to the classiness. The entire design has a strange sense of beauty to it, which successfully makes the somewhat compact design seem even more appealing. But the visual appeal is not just restricted to the exterior beauty, it is also evident in the interiors, which offers arguably the best in class features and other aspects any car can get. Being a luxury sports hatchback, the vehicle has the perfect dimensions to amplify the lasting impression it creates.

 

The mechanics too are however equally impressive with a thoughtful offering of both diesel and petrol engine variants. While the petrol variant comes with 1.6-litre four cylinder turbocharged engine, the diesel variant is offered with a 2.2-litre engine. What is impressive in this offering is the way these engines manage to create a perfect balance between the performance as well as efficiency. The petrol engine manages to creates a maximum output of 120.7bhp at 5000rpm along with 200Nm at 1250 - 4000rpm, while the diesel engine can offer an equally impressive power of 107.3bhp at 3200 – 4400rpm in combination with a peak torque yield of 250Nm at 1400 – 2800rpm, which is quite good. The vehicle comes as a completely built unit, which might result in making the vehicle an expensive affair. While the entire aesthetics seem undoubtedly targeted at the younger audience, the sporty feel does make the vehicle a sheer beauty for any range of customers. Though Mercedes Benz has not always been the commoners vehicle in the country, it definitely is one of the popular brand everyone aspires to own at some point of time in their life. The vehicle does matter a lot in the Indian automobile market, despite being an expensive vehicle because it would hopefully inspire a lot of automobiles entering the market not just in the Indian market but also the international scene. This is evident over the years when Mercedes Benz succeeded in opening up new technical and design avenues, which other companies were inspired from. The overall structure of this hatchback explains the contemporary design inspirations of curves along with well spaced and structured renderings, although it offers an unmistakable Mercedes Benz signature. The vehicle comes with a 7G-DCT (seven speed dual clutch transmission system) and the powerful engines in both the variants certainly manage to make perfect use of the same in offering not just a beautiful vehicle but also a powerful one. The best thing in this vehicle however undoubtedly remains the diesel option, which can offer a remarkable mileage and fuel economy compared to its petrol counterparts. What the future would be of this vehicle is most certainly unknown as of now, but whatever it is, it definitely manages to be an unforgettable inspiration to future generations of automobiles. The design of the vehicle is clearly unmatched to any other regular hatchbacks, which certainly reflects the authentic Mercedes Benz statement, signature and excellence.

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.

Though the vehicle is perfectly capable of offering varied fuel efficient performance for both the petrol and diesel variants, the acceleration and pick up ultimately remain priceless. The Mercedes Benz A Class is a comfortable hatchback, which successfully offers a splendid pickup, where in it reaches the 100 Kmph mark from standstill in a mere 9.2 seconds for the petrol version and can also 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, which this 2.2-litre engine has the ability to reach a top speed of 190 Kmph, which is impressive.

Engine and Performance

Editor's take : The engines on offer might on look that good on paper, but in the real world they are far better than what is on offer.

The Mercedes Benz A Class hatchback comes with two engine options offering a varied performance characteristics to the vehicles. The first one is the 1.6-litre, in-line four cylinder based petrol engine and the other one is a 2.2-litre turbocharged diesel engine. Both the engines are compliant to the pollution norms best suited for the current statistics. The petrol engine offers a maximum output of 120.7bhp at 5000rpm along with 200Nm at 1250 – 4000rpm . While the diesel engine can offer an equally impressive power of 107.3bhp at 3200 – 4400rpm in combination with a peak torque yield of 250Nm at 1400 – 2800rpm, which is excellent.

Mileage

Editor's take : The A-Class is a fuel-efficient vehicle, be it the petrol or the diesel. The light body-weight makes it fuel-efficient. The diesel has an ARAI mileage of 20 km/l.

Since the vehicle is offered in both petrol and diesel variants, it opens up the doors for a decent amount of performance as well as fuel efficiency. The fuel efficiency is not compromised in the diesel variant, while a special focus is given to performance in the petrol variant. Though the vehicle comes with an impressive set of features as a whole, the interesting fuel average is what makes this vehicle a crown jewel for Mercedes Benz. The petrol variant offers a decent mileage of 15.50 Kmpl, while the diesel variant gives out an approximate 20.06 Kmpl , which is rather impressive for the Indian road and traffic conditions. Considering the fuel prices in India presently, such a mileage from the diesel variant sure comes as a relief for all the fuel economy concerned customers, who are a majority in the Indian market.

Power of Mercedes-Benz A Class

The vehicle manages to churn out an impressive 120.7bhp at 5000rpm output , while the diesel engine does not fall back with its 2.2-litre diesel engine. The diesel engine too offers a competitive 107.3bhp at 3200 – 4400rpm, which is quite impressive.

Editor's take : The A-Class is a luxury hatchback and the German manufacturer is offering several optional features on this hatchback to customise the car. The A-Class also gets rear seat arm rest, reverse parking camera and higher ground clearance.

When Mercedes Benz does a job, it sure does a job worth applaud, respect and certainly worth a lingering look. The interiors and exteriors are splendid as is, but it also offers high end gadgets in the interiors to make the car even more breathtaking. The car features a high end crisp resolution 800x480 Audio 20 system .

Braking & Handling

Editor's take : The braking and handling characteristics of the A-Class are good and even the ride on offer is composed and settled. The new hatchback’s ground clearance has also been raised.

Both these hatchbacks come with perfect ambiance in the design as well as superior handling capabilities. However the interesting aspect remains the perfect balance the vehicle maintains between its Eco-friendly design and sporty performance. With the ECO start stop function the handling of the vehicle is proficient. Even at relatively high speeds, the car can come down to a standstill with less energy consumption. This BlueEfficiency technology along with the attention assist, hill start assist, brake assist system and the bi-xenon headlamps make the vehicle a perfect system in terms of handling.
