2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class
The new Mercedes-Benz A-Class is as younger and vibrant as ever, however developed and comfy like never in the past. It completely redefines modern high-end 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 variety of functions that were formerly the preserve of the high-end class. In particular driving scenarios, it has the ability to drive semi-autonomously for the very first time, and MULTIBEAM LED headlamps are available on demand. 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 energy worth 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 ensures a mentally attractive and appealing look. 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 look and a central silver louvre to highlight the sportiness of this model. The popular 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 greatly than in the preceding model series, stressing the vibrant, 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 squarely on the road.
2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Interior
The interior of the new A-Class is totally redefined with its modern, avant-garde look. Mercedes-Benz has actually taken a completely new method, revolutionising the compact class from the within with a new sensation of spaciousness. The distinct interior architecture is shaped in particular by the avant-garde style of the control panel: For the very first time a cowl above the cockpit has been entirely ignored. As a result, the wing-shaped primary body of the dashboard extends from one front door to the other with no visual discontinuity. The Widescreen display is entirely free-standing. The air vents in a sporty turbine-look are another highlight.
The interior architecture and the control & display screen systems of the new A-Class are a progressive USP in this section. The dashboard is divided into 2 three-dimensional, horizontal areas: the lower area is aesthetically separated from the primary body of the control panel by a “trench”, and it appears to float in front of the dashboard. The optional ambient lighting boosts this result, emphasizing the free-floating impression of the base.
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. Developments 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 consist of CAMTRONIC for the intake camshaft. Both petrol engine series have low-friction cylinder walls and a particulate filter as requirement. Likewise new is the four-cylinder diesel (OM 608) with a displacement of 1.5 litres, up to 85 kW and approximately 260 Nm. Its highlights are a near-engine mounted emission control system with AdBlue ® technology, a turbocharger with optimised reaction time and water intercooling. A new 7G-DCT double clutch transmission is likewise being presented. Even more new engines will follow. The fuel tank has a capability of 43 litres as standard, with a 51-litre tank optionally readily available.
2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Features
Speaking of infotainment, Mercedes-Benz is introducing 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 address all the problems 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 need 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 state “Hey, Mercedes” followed by your request, and the system will utilize its natural language processing to figure out exactly what you desire and make it take place.
MBUX likewise brings new linked features. Vehicle-to-X communication capabilities allow the system to receive messages about bad roads or emergency vehicles driving past. More traditional services are consisted of, too, like vehicle place, local gas rates and over-the-air updates. We took it for a spin at CES and actually enjoyed it, so we’re hoping that when it pertains to the United States, we’ll continue to enjoy it. Then again, it’s not Comand, so it’s a step in the right instructions no matter what– Comand went a little heavy on the menus, while MBUX tries to make things a bit more uncomplicated.
