Hot or Not? The 2019 Mercedes Benz A-Class Hot Hatch
Does ‘A’ stand for appealing? That’s definitely the impression people get when they first lay their eyes on the Mercedes Benz A-Class Hatchback. This model endears both dedicated Mercedes fans and casual car enthusiasts with its sleek, friendly and modern appearance. The aerodynamic contour imparts a sporty look to the luxury hatchback.
The LED headlights and diamond block grille are rounded out by the iconic Mercedes Benz Star to create an aesthetically appealing appearance that will remain relevant well into the future.
The 64-color cabin lighting illuminates the interior to create an opulent and stunning ambience. The car is bedecked exclusively with LED lights, the best in lighting technology.
A-Class is all about user experience and that is reflected in the dazzling dashboard. Interestingly, it is devoid of analog displays and sports highly customizable screen displays. These feature the revolutionary Mercedes Benz User Experience (MBUX) and it doesn’t disappoint. The display screen is a standard high-resolution 7-inch display that can be expanded to a deluxe 10.25-inch screen for a quality, on-the-go viewing experience. The voice-activated MBUX responds to the “Hey Mercedes” prompt and provides information like navigation including live traffic details. It will even respond to your tricky questions. The system operates seamlessly with the cloud and even works offline if the car goes beyond signal range.
The luxuriously futuristic interior of the A-Class is far ahead of other cars in this category.
The spacious cabin immerses passengers in a comfortable liberating interior which is quite remarkable for hatchbacks. The car offers plenty of space for both passengers and luggage. With 13 cubic feet for luggage space, the carpeted interior of the trunk provides lots of room. Even if that is not enough, the seats can be folded down to unlock 43 cubic feet of space which will be sufficient for all your shopping and outdoor needs.
The athletic hatchback is powered with 221 hp turbocharged engine which can operate in four drive modes that range from fuel saving economy mode to high performance race mode. The transmission system and chassis have been engineered for exceptional driving control and comfort by keeping a wide wheel base, low centre of gravity, independent suspension and wide track. The car can blaze to 62 mph in only 6.2 seconds to make it a top-of-the-line performance hatchback. Steering is quick, responsive and accurate and you can barely feel any tilting as the car careens around bends. The car moves smoothly thanks to its refined transmission system which has a sophisticated rear suspension system to increase handling.
There is no manual system – seven speed dual transmission systems have been deployed on all models for maximum driving comfort.
The Mercedes Benz Intelligent Drive powers the suite of safety features to offer exceptionally high level of protection to passengers. 6D vision technology and multipurpose camera comprise the sensor system which can detect the environment at about 500 meters away. The high-tech safety system keeps your car moving in line, detects obstacles to brake automatically, allows you to safely switch lanes, provides higher vision at night time and detects drowsiness.
Say goodbye to parking headaches with Active Parking Assist which can find parking and automatically park your car hands-free.
With such comfort and so many safety features, this is a natural choice for you and your loved ones. This is definitely a premium quality car at a highly competitive market price.
