The new-generation A-Class will be stepping into the limelight at the "Auto Mobil International" (AMI) motor show in Leipzig from 5th - 13th April, 2008. Following an extensive facelift, the successful compact car is younger, more attractive and more environmentally friendly than ever before.
The convenient ECO start/stop function is available for the first time for the high-volume A 150 and A 170 models, which reduces fuel consumption of these BlueEFFICIENCY vehicles by up to nine percent when driving in city traffic. Mercedes-Benz has developed an additional BlueEFFICIENCY package for the three-door A 160 CDI, reducing the Coupé’s fuel consumption to just 4.5 litres per 100 kilometres.
Independent experts have confirmed these major environmental advances by awarding the A‑Class an internationally valid Environmental Certificate - the world’s first compact car to receive such an accolade. The new-generation B-Class will also be celebrating its world premiere at the AMI. The sports tourer is now available with a petrol/natural-gas drive system for the very first time.
After the Mercedes B-Class facelift unveiled few days ago, the first official images of the A-Class facelift surfaced on the internet. The exterior features new front and rear bumpers, redesigned headlamps, a new radiator grille and new tail-light crystals. Inside, Mercedes-Benz offers a new choice of upholstery fabrics along with a new aluminum trim for the dashboard.
The A-Class will be available with the same engine range, but hanks to a series of improvements, the four-cylinder engines now consume up to seven percent less fuel than previously.
Sales will begin early this summer.
Exactly ten years after the successful A-Class was first presented in 1997, Mercedes-Benz is celebrating the anniversary of this compact car with the exclusive "Edition 10" special model. With a customer cost advantage for the equipment of up to 30 percent, and in addition to the extensive standard appointments, this anniversary edition includes sporty 16-inch light-alloy wheels, a perforated radiator grille and a louvred panoramic sunroof. The sporty, elegant atmosphere in the stylish interior is enhanced with high-grade leather and brushed aluminium. This superbly equipped editions of the A-Class can be ordered with immediate effect.
