About Mercedes A Class

The Mercedes A Class was introduced in 1997 as the W168 A Class. Originally, it was a compact five-door hatchback which had a front wheel drive layout and extraordinary tall yet short body, unusual for Mercedes-Benz. The W168 received an innovative frontal-impact absorption system called the “Sandwich” that protects the driver and passengers in case of a severe front collision by directing the engine underneath the cabin if a violent frontal impact takes place. The exterior of the 1997 A Class was created by Steve Mattin, who was named the Designer of the Year by Autocar magazine for this design. All A Class models, starting from 1997, are powered by four-cylinder engines. Both gasoline and diesel engines are available.

The second generation of the A Class was in production from 2004 to 2012. The W169 was manufactured using high-strength steel alloys with bonded joints. It also provided extra safety thanks to a number of airbags. In 2008, a three-door coupe and five-door sedan were additionally introduced. In 2012, the third generation of the A Class (W176) was released. It became larger than previous two generations and as a result entered the superior compact car segment for the first time. The A 45 AMG is a performance version of the A Class which was presented in 2013. It got AMG speedshift dual-clutch transmission (DCT), AMG sports suspension with independently developed front and rear axles and light-alloy wheels in a twin-spoke design.

Grippy and capable, the Mercedes-Benz A Class is a compact car that provides a really dynamic driving. Designed as an alternative to the Audi A3 and BMW 1-Series, the third generation A-Class is intended to be even more dynamic than previous generations. It became lower and wider than before, featuring the lower-slung architecture with center of gravity claimed to be closer to the ground by more than 1.5 inches. With multi-link rear suspension, strut-type front suspension, and responsive, accurate steering, the A Class expertly absorbs bumps and feels nicely balanced and agile.
