A-Class Sedan Latest Update
Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the A-Class sedan and it is expected to go on sale in international markets by the end of this year. The carmaker has also revealed the LWB version of the new sedan, which will be sold only in the Chinese market.
Although Mercedes has confirmed that the A-Class sedan will also come to India (expected by 2019) it is yet to be known whether it will be in the standard version or the LWB version(which is currently China exclusive). We expect it to be the latter considering the popularity of the E-Class LWB in the country.
In the international market, the A-Class sedan is available with two engine options. The A 200 variant is powered by a 1330cc turbocharged petrol engine that makes 163PS of power and 250Nm of torque, mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. The A 180 d, on the other hand, gets a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine that generates 116PS and 260Nm, paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Since the A-Class sedan will be a CBU import in the country, we expect the India-spec car to be powered by the same set of petrol and diesel engines.
Talking about the price, the German carmaker has already confirmed that the new A-Class sedan will be priced between the CLA and the C-Class in the Indian market. So, expect a price tag of about Rs 35 lakh. When launched, the A-Class sedan will take on likes of the Audi A3. It will also compete with the BMW 1 Series sedan, if the carmaker decides to launch its entry-level sedan here.
