It now has a more planted stance, longer, wider and lower and more importantly, a more premium looking design inside and out. Inside it adopts a more C-class-like interior which combines sporty styling with a dash of elegance.
The new A-class is offered locally with a range of gasoline powerplants. 1.6-liter turbocharged engine which makes 122hp (A180) and 154hp (A200), and a 2.0-liter turbocharged mill which produces 215hp (A250).
