Mercedes A-class

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

The A200 will in­tro­duce Aussies to the Mercedes-benz A-class sedan when it ar­rives in April. Benz’s booted baby is only ex­pected to gen­er­ate in­cre­men­tal sales for A-class along­side the hatch­back, and will sub­se­quently be of­fered in both A180 and A250 forms, each at a premium around $2000 com­pared with a hatch of the same spec­i­fi­ca­tion. The hand­some A-class sedan is built on the same 2729mm wheel­base as its sib­ling, but is 130mm longer over­all with the ad­di­tion of a boot. The A-class fea­tures Mercedes’ voice-com­mand MBUX in­fo­tain­ment and driv­ing as­sis­tance sys­tem. The A200 comes pow­ered by a 120kw, 250Nm 1.3-litre turbo petrol four and sev­en­speed dual-clutch auto combo and is ex­pected to kick off just be­low $50K.
