The All-New Mercedes-Benz A-Class

by on Apr.16, 2013, under Cars, Mercedes Car Reviews

With the new A-Class, Mercedes-Benz is opening up a new chapter in the compact segment: markedly emotive in design, with powerful engines ranging from 80 kW to 155 kW, extremely efficient with emissions from just 98 g of CO2/km and a best-in-class drag coefficient of 0.27. At the same time the new model underlines that for Mercedes-Benz, safety is not a question of price – the standard specification includes, amongst other things, the radar-based COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST system, ATTENTION ASSIST and PRE-SAFE.

A Class New

“Mercedes-Benz is becoming the most dynamic premium brand in the world. As part of this development, the A-Class represents an important milestone. The A-Class is completely new, right down to the last detail. It’s not often you get the chance to start with a clean sheet of paper in automotive development. Our designers and engineers have made the very most of that opportunity”, says Dr Martin Zimmermann, President and CEO, Mercedes-Benz South Africa.

Continuing success: the Mercedes-Benz A-Class


The A-Class has been a bestseller for a number of generations. Since its market launch in 1997, it has blazed a trail for a new vehicle class with its unique design, becoming a driving force in the compact car segment. The second generation alone, which was launched in 2005, sold more than a million models worldwide.
