2.0L inline-4 turbo engine
The 188-hp 2.0L inline-4 engine combines turbocharging with numerous advances to deliver more power from less fuel. Its rapid-multispark ignition and high-pressure Direct Injection can fine-tune themselves in milliseconds. Its twin-scroll turbo and CAMTRONIC variable valve lift help keep all 221 lb-ft of torque on tap from just 1,600 rpm. Clever CONICSHAPE cylinders slash friction to help reduce wear and fuel consumption. And a particulate filter helps make its emissions even cleaner.
ECO Start/Stop system
An ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations, to save fuel and reduce emissions. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for immediate acceleration response. The ECO Start/Stop system can also be shut off by the driver at any time.
The A-Class front-wheel drive system is an ideal match for its nimble handling and efficient packaging. Impeccable calibration of the Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) and Electronic Traction System (ETS) enhances tire bite under hard acceleration, while equal-length driveshafts virtually eliminate undesirable torque steer.
Elegance and eagerness in perfect proportion
The A-Class Sedan speaks its design language with a confidence that stands out in an overstyled world. Its lines are clean and flowing, designed to pair class-leading aerodynamics with a spacious cabin. The hood is wide and low, with crisp shoulders sweeping from the Star-centered grille and LED headlamps. Standard 18-inch wheels emphasize its long wheelbase and sleek profile. And its details are elegant, modern and athletic, just like the sporty performance and advanced technology within.
High-style, high-tech cabin
Fine materials, forward-thinking technology and freshly reimagined design unite in a cabin that's a cut above and steps ahead of ordinary small cars. Digital instruments and displays, touchpads on the steering wheel and console, and an industry-advancing voice interface enhance ease of use. Aircraft-inspired round vents and luxuriously contoured seats add to the premium feel. And standard luxuries abound, like power front seats with memory, a Panorama roof, and dual-zone climate control.
AMG® body styling
A resculpted front air dam, flared side sills and deep rear valance team with 18-inch AMG® wheels for a gripping appearance befitting the car's handling. The front apron's outer air intakes feature a chrome splitter (finished in black with the Night Package) and matte black slats to guide air to the running gear and around to the shapely side sills. Twin trapezoidal chrome tailpipes punctuate the distinctively sporty rear valance.
Offering sweeping skyward views to both front- and rear-seat passengers, this giant, fully functional glass sunroof features a large panel that can tilt up for ventilation or slide back for an open-air feeling. A power interior shade lets occupants vary the amount of sunlight entering the cabin, and you can even open and close it using the car's advanced voice control system.
Active Brake Assist
Radar-based technology can alert you if you're approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as you start to brake, it can automatically provide an appropriate level of braking to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. If you fail to respond, it can also initiate braking automatically at a range of driving speeds. The system can also detect and react to crossing pedestrians at typical city speeds.
Mercedes-Benz Emergency Call service
If an air bag deploys, your car can automatically initiate a call to Mercedes-Benz Emergency Services, transmitting your GPS-determined location and helpful vehicle information on your behalf. Trained experts are on call 24/7 to help summon local emergency responders to your location. You can also press the SOS button in the vehicle anytime you need emergency assistance, or see someone else who does. This service is provided for as long as you own the vehicle, no matter who's driving.
The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST® continuously monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior, and can automatically alert the driver with both visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips. With enhanced sensitivity, the system can also help detect drivers who begin their trip drowsy, and offer more useful information to drivers along their journey via a dashboard display.
Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX)
A leap ahead in automobile cockpit control, the Mercedes-Benz User Experience advances to the forefront of innovation. MBUX integrates digital in-dash displays including a touchscreen, touch-sensitive controls, Bluetooth® hands-free and audio streaming, and an available industry-advancing voice control system that responds to your everyday speaking voice and phrasing of commands. You can set up multiple user profiles of favored settings, and groups of settings can be saved as themes or moods.
Voice Control with Natural Language Understanding
A highly advanced system takes voice control to a fascinating level. Memorizing fixed commands is a thing of the past, and artificial intelligence makes the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) a future you can live today. Vehicle functions respond to natural, conversational phrases. For example, say "I feel cold" and MBUX can adjust the climate control. It even learns new phrases over time, and responds with more flexible and friendly language as well.
"Hey, Mercedes" keyword activation
Two friendly words let you activate the voice control features of the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX). Just say "Hey, Mercedes" (or touch the voice control button on the steering wheel), and then tell MBUX what you'd like the car to do in everyday language, like you're talking to another person. Want the available MB Navigation to guide to a coffee shop? You can just say "Hey, Mercedes, I need a coffee" or ask it to find your favorite coffee chain nearby.
