India-bound Mercedes-Benz A-Class will go on sale in European dealerships from this September. Dealers have already begun accepting orders for these models. The A-Class will be powered by a range of engines with power ratings between 109bhp to 211bhp. Mercedes-Benz claims them to be highly efficient.
All engines of the new A-Class feature the ECO start/stop function as standard. The engines can be combined with the new six-speed manual transmission or optionally with the 7G-DCT dual clutch automatic transmission.
With air conditioning, Audio 5 USB, electric windows all round, Headlamp Assist and 12-button multifunction steering wheel, the A-Class is already fully equipped even in its base configuration.
With "Urban", "Style" and "AMG Sport" appointment lines, three design packages ("Night", "Exclusive" and "AMG Exclusive") as well as further optional extras, the model can be customised to suit every individual taste.
Dr. Joachim Schmidt, Member of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Cars responsible for Sales & Marketing states, "We have taken the opportunity to design a completely new vehicle which sets standards in its segment.
I am convinced that the new A-Class will make a significant contribution to our Mercedes-Benz 2020 growth strategy." The A-Class will be available in India, beginning sometime next year. We predict this range to cost somewhere between Rs 20-23lakh, making it the new entry-level Mercedes-Benz. This model will help Mercedes-Benz gain a higher market share in the luxury car market and bump its existing sales figure.
