The new Mercedes-Benz A-Class is as youthful and dynamic as ever, but grown-up and comfortable like never previously. It entirely redefines modern luxury in the compact class, and revolutionises interior decoration. Technologically the new A-Class not just takes top place thanks to MBUX– Mercedes-Benz User Experience: it also uses a number of functions that were previously the maintain of the luxury class. In certain driving scenarios, it is able to drive semi-autonomously for the first time, and MULTIBEAM LED headlamps are offered on request. All models of the new A-Class are also powered by new, effective diesel and petrol engines, and although Mercedes-Benz has actually retained the stylish look, the utility value has actually increased.
2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Exterior
The exterior of the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class represents sportiness, dynamism and emotion. The progressive front style with a low bonnet, flat LED headlamps with chrome components and torch-like daytime driving lamps makes sure a mentally attractive and attractive appearance. The striking radiator grille with Mercedes star, whose shape opens out to the base as a reinterpretation of its predecessor, features pins in a diamond appearance and a main silver louvre to highlight the sportiness of this model. The prominent air inlets in the lower area of the bumper echo the silhouette of the radiator grille.
The vehicle is aesthetically extended by the longer wheelbase and character line along the side. The bonnet slopes down more heavily than in the preceding model series, stressing the vibrant, upright front. The larger wheel arches for wheels from 16 to 19 inches stress the sportiness of the new A-Class and make it sit more squarely on the roadway.
2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Interior
The interior of the new A-Class is totally redefined with its modern-day, avant-garde appearance. Mercedes-Benz has actually taken a completely new technique, revolutionising the compact class from the within with a new feeling of spaciousness. The unique interior architecture is formed in specific by the avant-garde style of the control panel: For the very first time a cowl above the cockpit has been totally ignored. 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 emphasize.
The interior architecture and the control & screen systems of the new A-Class are a progressive USP in this segment. The dashboard is divided into 2 three-dimensional, horizontal sections: the lower area is aesthetically separated from the main body of the dashboard by a “trench”, and it appears to float in front of the dashboard. The optional ambient lighting improves this impact, emphasizing the free-floating impression of the foundation.
2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Engine
All the new A-Class models are powered by new, effective 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 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 consist of CAMTRONIC for the consumption camshaft. Both petrol engine series have low-friction cylinder walls and a particulate filter as standard. Likewise new is the four-cylinder diesel (OM 608) with a displacement of 1.5 litres, as much as 85 kW and up to 260 Nm. Its highlights are a near-engine installed emission control system with AdBlue ® technology, a turbocharger with optimised response time and water intercooling. A new 7G-DCT double clutch transmission is also being presented. Even more new engines will follow. The fuel tank has a capacity of 43 litres as basic, with a 51-litre tank optionally readily available.
2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Features
Speaking of infotainment, Mercedes-Benz is presenting a brand-new system with the A-Class. MBUX, which is brief for Mercedes-Benz User Experience but sounds like a bad frequent-flier program, attempts to attend to all the issues with its previous Comand system in one go, and it actually attains that.
Touch-based input has made its way to the infotainment screen, so buyers require not rely solely 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 request, and the system will utilize its natural language processing to find out what you desire and make it happen.
MBUX likewise brings new connected features. Vehicle-to-X communication abilities permit the system to get messages about bad roads or emergency situation vehicles driving past. More conventional services are consisted of, too, like vehicle place, regional 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 comes to the US, we’ll continue to enjoy it. However, it’s not Comand, so it’s a step in the best instructions no matter what– Comand went a little heavy on the menus, while MBUX tries to make things a bit more simple.
