Mercedes long list of models has just been expanded with the introduction of the 2019 A-Class sedan. Previously available as a long-wheelbase model exclusively in China, the new model available for other markets will be on show later this year at the Paris Motor Show (4-14th of October).
Set to do battle with the Audi A3, the new 2019 Mercedes A-Class sedan features a slippery shape to slice through the air in order to reduce drag.
Measuring in at 4,549 mm in length and riding on a wheelbase spanning 2,729 mm, compared to the China-exclusive model, it’s 60 mm shorter.
The four-door 2019 Mercedes A-Class sedan is fitted with the latest MBUX infotainment system and a wide range of safety and driver-assistance systems; including emergency braking, GPS-enabled cruise control and lane-change assist plus others you would expect to find in larger Mercedes vehicles.
Three different guises have been announced starting with the A180d, A200 and A220. Beginning with the latter, power comes from a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine rated at 188 horsepower and 300 Nm of torque, connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox driving either the front wheels or all four of them.
The A200 has the same engine but pushes out 163 horsepower and 250 Nm of torque.
Availability has yet to be confirmed, but the model will most likely arrive in the US and Europe later this year and will most likely go on sale in the GCC shortly afterwards or early next year.
