Available in two variants, A 200 Progressive Line and A 250 AMG Line, these two dynamic compact limousines are the latest additions to the Mercedes-Benz Malaysia product portfolio.

“A first for Mercedes-Benz, the combination of a limousine paired with the progressive, cutting-edge design of a compact car. It embodies the next step on the revolutionary journey into the digital future of the automobile world,” said Mark Raine, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia.

The new Mercedes-Benz A-Class Limousine

Priced at RM 229,888 and RM 267,888 (estimated) respectively, the new A-Class offers great utility. That includes above-average shoulder, elbow and headroom plus easy access to the rear. It is at the top of its segment with regard to rear headroom (944 mm). The boot has a capacity of 420 litres and was designed for practical usability. The boot opening is very large with a width of 950 mm and a diagonal of 462 mm between lock and lower edge of the rear window. This allows comfortable loading and unloading, even of larger luggage items.

The engine portfolio of the A-Class Limousine is efficient and powerful, with A 200 Progressive Line running on a 1.4 litre engine generating 163 hp/250 Nm while the A 250 AMG Line on a 2.0 litre engine, generating greater performance of 224 hp/350 Nm.

World record defended: none is more aerodynamic

The new A-Class limousine takes advantage of the favourable conditions provided by its long rear end to undercut even the already exemplary A-Class with hatchback (cw value 0.25). With a benchmark of Cd = 0.22 the new saloon model even equals the original world record of the CLA Coupé. Thanks to the frontal area of 2.19 m², smaller than that of the CLA, the new A-Class Limousine has the lowest aerodynamic drag of all production vehicles worldwide.

Equipment & appointments: KEYLESS-GO with HANDS-FREE ACCESS available

The new A-Class is the first Mercedes-Benz model to feature the completely new MBUX – Mercedes-Benz User Experience multimedia system, which also ushers in a new era for Mercedes me connectivity at the same time. A unique feature of this system is its ability to learn thanks to artificial intelligence. MBUX is customisable and adapts to the user. It thus creates an emotional connection between vehicle, driver and passengers

Standard features include the MBUX infotainment system with touchscreen, and driving assistance systems of the latest generation such as Active Brake Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assist.

The KEYLESS-GO Convenience Package with HANDS-FREE ACCESS will be one of the available options, for example. The HANDS-FREE ACCESS convenience function enables hands-free and fully automatic opening of the boot lid with a kicking motion of the foot under the rear bumper.

Exterior design: superior sportiness and modernity

With its puristic design emphasising surfaces, the A-Class Limousine is hot and cool at the same time, and thereby is a seamless fit with the design idiom of Sensual Purity. This includes the clear formal shapes emphasising surface areas with reduced lines and precise gaps. The new A-Class Limousine has the proportions of a dynamic and compact limousine car with short front and rear overhangs.

Interior design: revolution from within

The interior of the new A-Class is completely redefined with its modern, avant-garde look. Mercedes-Benz has taken a completely new approach, revolutionising the compact class from the inside with a new feeling of spaciousness. The unique interior architecture is shaped in particular by the avant-garde design of the dashboard: The designers completely dispensed with a cowl above the cockpit. As a result, the wing-shaped main body of the dashboard extends from one front door to the other with no visual discontinuity. The air vents in a sporty turbine look are another highlight.

Intelligent Drive: functions from the S-Class

The A-Class has the very latest driving assistance systems with cooperative driver support, and thus provides the highest level of active safety in this segment with functions adopted from the S‑Class. For the first time, the A-Class is able to drive semi-autonomously in certain situations. To do this, it keeps a close eye on the traffic situation: improved camera and radar systems allow it to see up to 500 metres ahead. The A-Class also uses map and navigation data for assistance functions.
