Highly the new A-Class not only takes top place thanks to MBUX– Mercedes-Benz User Experience: it also provides a variety of functions that were previously the protect of the high-end class. In particular driving scenarios, it has the ability to drive semi-autonomously for the first time, and MULTIBEAM LED headlamps are readily available on demand. All models of the new A-Class are likewise powered by new, efficient diesel and petrol engines, and although Mercedes-Benz has actually retained the stylish appearance, 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 design with a low bonnet, flat LED headlamps with chrome elements and torch-like daytime driving lights guarantees an emotionally enticing and appealing appearance. The striking radiator grille with Mercedes star, whose silhouette opens out towards the base as a reinterpretation of its predecessor, features pins in a diamond appearance and a main silver louvre to underline the sportiness of this model. The popular air inlets in the lower area 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 heavily than in the preceding model series, emphasising the vibrant, upright front. The larger wheel arches for wheels from 16 to 19 inches stress the sportiness of the new A-Class and make it sit more directly on the road.
2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Interior
The interior of the new A-Class is entirely redefined with its modern, avant-garde look. Mercedes-Benz has actually taken a completely new method, revolutionising the compact class from the inside with a new sensation of spaciousness. The distinct interior architecture is shaped in specific by the avant-garde style of the control panel: For the first time a cowl above the cockpit has been totally ignored. As an outcome, the wing-shaped main 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 stylish turbine-look are another emphasize.
The interior architecture and the control & screen systems of the new A-Class are a progressive USP in this segment. The dashboard is divided into 2 three-dimensional, horizontal sections: the lower section is aesthetically separated from the main body of the control panel by a “trench”, and it appears to drift in front of the control panel. The optional ambient lighting boosts this impact, accentuating the free-floating impression of the foundation.

All the new A-Class models are powered by new, efficient engines: Two new four-cylinder fuel engines are offered 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 include CAMTRONIC for the consumption camshaft. Both petrol engine series have low-friction cylinder walls and a particulate filter as standard.

A new 7G-DCT double clutch transmission is likewise being presented. Further new engines will follow. The fuel tank has a capacity of 43 litres as basic, with a 51-litre tank optionally available.
2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Features
Mentioning infotainment, Mercedes-Benz is presenting a new system with the A-Class. MBUX, which is brief for Mercedes-Benz User Experience however sounds like a bad frequent-flier program, tries to address all the issues with its previous Comand system in one go, and it in fact achieves that.
Touch-based input has made its way to the infotainment screen, so buyers need not rely entirely on the hit-or-miss touchpad on the center console. There’s likewise a new digital assistant that works likewise to Cortana or Alexa– simply state “Hey, Mercedes” followed by your request, and the system will use its natural language processing to figure out what you want and make it occur.
MBUX also brings new linked features. Vehicle-to-X interaction capabilities permit the system to receive messages about bad roads or emergency vehicles driving past. More traditional services are consisted of, too, like vehicle place, regional gas prices and over-the-air updates. We took it for a spin at CES and truly enjoyed it, so we’re hoping that when it pertains to the US, we’ll continue to enjoy it. However, it’s not Comand, so it’s an action in the best direction no matter what– Comand went a little heavy on the menus, while MBUX attempts to make things a bit more simple.
