The new Mercedes-Benz A-Class is as younger and vibrant as ever, however full-grown and comfy like never ever in the past. It completely redefines modern-day luxury in the compact class, and revolutionises interior design. Highly the new A-Class not only takes top place thanks to MBUX– Mercedes-Benz User Experience: it likewise provides a number of functions that were formerly the preserve of the high-end class. In particular driving situations, it is able to drive semi-autonomously for the first time, and MULTIBEAM LED headlamps are available on demand. All models of the new A-Class are likewise powered by new, efficient diesel and petrol engines, and although Mercedes-Benz has actually maintained the sporty appearance, the energy worth has actually increased.
2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Exterior
The exterior of the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class stands for sportiness, dynamism and feeling. The progressive front style with a low bonnet, flat LED headlamps with chrome aspects and torch-like daytime driving lights ensures a mentally appealing and alluring appearance. The striking radiator grille with Mercedes star, whose silhouette opens out to the base as a reinterpretation of its predecessor, features pins in a diamond look and a central silver louvre to highlight the sportiness of this model. The prominent air inlets in the lower location of the bumper echo the silhouette of the radiator grille.
The vehicle is visually extended by the longer wheelbase and character line along the side. The bonnet slopes down more heavily than in the preceding model series, emphasising the vibrant, upright front. The larger wheel arches for wheels from 16 to 19 inches emphasise the sportiness of the new A-Class and make it sit more directly on the road.
2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Interior
The interior of the new A-Class is totally redefined with its modern, progressive appearance. Mercedes-Benz has taken a completely new approach, changing the compact class from the within with a new sensation of spaciousness. The special interior architecture is shaped in specific by the avant-garde design of the dashboard: For the very first time a cowl above the cockpit has actually been completely done without. As an outcome, the wing-shaped primary body of the control panel extends from one front door to the other with no visual discontinuity. The Widescreen display is entirely free-standing. The air vents in a stylish turbine-look are another highlight.
The interior architecture and the control & display systems of the new A-Class are an avant-garde USP in this segment. The control panel is divided into 2 three-dimensional, horizontal sections: the lower section is aesthetically separated from the main body of the control panel by a “trench”, and it appears to float in front of the control panel. The optional ambient lighting enhances this effect, accentuating the free-floating impression of the substructure.
2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Engine
All the new A-Class models are powered by new, efficient engines: Two new four-cylinder petrol engines are readily available at market launch. Innovations in the M 282 with a displacement of 1.4 litres and up to 120 kW include cylinder shutoff (in conjunction with the 7G-DCT transmission) and the delta shape of the cylinder head. The second new petrol engine is the M 260 with a displacement of 2.0 litres, 165 kW and 350 Nm. New features include CAMTRONIC for the intake camshaft. Both petrol engine series have low-friction cylinder walls and a particulate filter as requirement.

Its highlights are a near-engine mounted emission control system with AdBlue ® technology, a turbocharger with optimised action time and water intercooling. A new 7G-DCT dual clutch transmission is also being introduced. Further new engines will follow. The fuel tank has a capability of 43 litres as standard, with a 51-litre tank optionally offered.
2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Features
Speaking of infotainment, Mercedes-Benz is presenting a new system with the A-Class. MBUX, which is short for Mercedes-Benz User Experience but sounds like a bad frequent-flier program, tries to address all the problems with its previous Comand system in one go, and it actually accomplishes that.
Touch-based input has actually made its method to the infotainment screen, so purchasers require not rely solely on the hit-or-miss touchpad on the center console. There’s also a new digital assistant that works likewise to Cortana or Alexa– just state “Hey, Mercedes” followed by your request, and the system will use its natural language processing to find out exactly what you desire and make it take place.
MBUX likewise brings new linked features. Vehicle-to-X interaction capabilities enable the system to receive messages about bad roads or emergency vehicles driving past. More conventional services are included, too, like vehicle place, local gas costs and over-the-air updates. We took it for a spin at CES and actually enjoyed it, so we’re hoping that when it concerns the United States, we’ll continue to enjoy it. Then again, it’s not Comand, so it’s a step in the ideal direction no matter what– Comand went a little heavy on the menus, while MBUX attempts to make things a bit more straightforward.
