Mercedes-Benz India today launched the new A-Class Limousine at an introductory price tag of Rs 39.9 lakh (ex-showroom). It will be locally manufactured at Mercedes-Benz’s plant near Pune. The A35 AMG will also be locally manufactured which makes it the second AMG model after the GLC 43 AMG to be assembled in CKD form in India. Like the A35 AMG, the regular A 200 and A 200d models use Mercedes-Benz’s global design language. The model from the front is quite reminiscent of the CLS-Class, while the rear is quite similar to the newly launched E-Class with the sleek LED Tail Lamps.
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class Limousine in India will be offered in three engine variants, all in their highest-spec on offer. There will be the A 200 petrol, the A 200d and the A35 AMG performance variant.
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class Limousine in its A 200 petrol variant will be powered by a 1.3-litre turbocharged engine which develops 160 hp and 250 Nm of torque. It is mated to a 7-speed DCT automatic transmission.
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class Limousine diesel will come in the form of the A 200d model. It features a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged motor which develops 150 hp and 320 Nm of torque. This engine is paired with an 8-speed DCT automatic transmission.
Along with the regular petrol and diesel engines, the Mercedes-AMG A35 4MATIC will also be launched in India today. Powered by the 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, it offers 306 hp and 400 Nm of torque. This engine comes with an AMG tuned 7-speed DCT and does 0-100 in 4.8 seconds with a top speed of 250 kph.
The A-Class will run the latest version of the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MUX) OS. The infotainment system uses three forms of inputs – Touchscreen, Voice Activation with “Hey Mercedes” and through the touchpad on the centre console. Additionally, you also get Mercedes Me Connect (MMC) which offers internet-enabled connected car technologies.
The Mercedes-Benz A 200 and A 200d models also get a really plush cabin with a dual-tone black and beige look. Like the A35 AMG, it also features the long glass panel which includes the 10-inch driver instrument cluster and the 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
