The new Mercedes-Benz A-Class is as younger and vibrant as ever, however grown-up and comfortable like never ever before. It entirely redefines contemporary high-end in the compact class, and revolutionises interior design. Technically the new A-Class not just takes first place thanks to MBUX– Mercedes-Benz User Experience: it also offers a variety of functions that were previously the maintain of the luxury class. In particular driving scenarios, it has the ability to drive semi-autonomously for the very first time, and MULTIBEAM LED headlamps are readily available on request. All models of the new A-Class are also powered by new, efficient diesel and petrol engines, and although Mercedes-Benz has retained the sporty look, the utility worth has increased.
2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Exterior
The exterior of the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class means sportiness, dynamism and feeling. The progressive front design with a low bonnet, flat LED headlamps with chrome aspects and torch-like daytime driving lamps ensures an emotionally enticing and attractive look. 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 appearance 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 shape 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 dynamic, upright front. The bigger 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-day, avant-garde look. Mercedes-Benz has actually taken an entirely new approach, revolutionising the compact class from the inside with a new feeling of spaciousness. The unique interior architecture is formed in particular by the avant-garde design of the dashboard: For the first time a cowl above the cockpit has been totally done without. As a result, the wing-shaped main body of the dashboard extends from one front door to the other with no visual discontinuity. The Widescreen display screen is entirely free-standing. The air vents in a stylish turbine-look are another emphasize.
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 two three-dimensional, horizontal areas: the lower section is aesthetically separated from the main body of the dashboard by a “trench”, and it appears to float in front of the control panel. The optional ambient lighting boosts this impact, highlighting 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 as much as 120 kW include cylinder shutoff (in combination 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 standard. Also new is the four-cylinder diesel (OM 608) with a displacement of 1.5 litres, up to 85 kW and up to 260 Nm. Its highlights are a near-engine mounted emission control system with AdBlue ® technology, a turbocharger with optimised response 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 basic, 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 seems like a bad frequent-flier program, tries to deal with all the problems with its previous Comand system in one go, and it really attains that.
Touch-based input has actually made its way to the infotainment screen, so purchasers require not rely exclusively on the hit-or-miss touchpad on the center console. There’s likewise a new digital assistant that works similarly to Cortana or Alexa– just say “Hey, Mercedes” followed by your demand, and the system will use its natural language processing to determine what you desire and make it take place.
MBUX also brings new connected features. Vehicle-to-X communication capabilities enable the system to get messages about bad roadways or emergency vehicles driving past. More standard services are included, too, like vehicle location, local gas costs and over-the-air updates. We took it for a spin at CES and truly enjoyed it, so we’re hoping that when it pertains to the US, 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 tries to make things a bit more uncomplicated.
