The new A-Class is described by Mercedes to be the benchmark of the compact car class.

There have been several touches on the A-Class; Mercedes Benz completely redefined modern luxury in the compact class. The eye-catching interior, the new and efficient petrol engines, the sporty appearance, the utility are all worth to be mentioned.

Technologically the A-Class stands out among its competitors with MBUX – Mercedes-Benz User Experience; it offers a number of functions that were previously the preserve of the luxury class.

Let’s show you around some of the key features of the new Mercedes Benz A-class.


There is this emotional experience created between the vehicle, driver and passenger by the multimedia system MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) in the A-Class. The MBUX is enhanced with an inbuilt learning capability thanks to artificial intelligence and can also be personalized to the taste and needs of the driver.

The MBUX multimedia system comes with a comprehensive touch operation by touchscreen, touchpad (optional) on the center console and touch control buttons in the steering wheel, there is also an optional intelligent voice control with natural language comprehension and activation using the keyword “Hey Mercedes”. Other key features of the MBUX include a navigation display with MBUX augmented reality technology and new “Mercedes me” services.


Added to the above is the intelligent drive system. This will enable the A-Class drive semi-autonomously in certain driving situations. This is first of its kind in the A-Class segment.

The A-Class has also been able to achieve the highest safety standard in this segment thanks to extended driving assistance systems with S‑Class functions as optional equipment.

The both feature support the driver even more conveniently in keeping a safe distance and steering. The vehicle speed is now also automatically adjusted on bends, at road junctions and on roundabouts.

PRE-SAFE® PLUS can recognize an imminent rear-end collision. If the danger of a collision persists, the system can also firmly apply the brakes of the vehicle, thus minimizing the risk of injuries by reducing the forward jolt caused by an impact from the rear.

There are also other additional features like the Active Emergency Stop Assist and the intuitively understandable Active Lane Change Assist.


The new A-Class is designed to give the driver a mind blowing treat by improving the driving pleasure and ride comfort when compared to its predecessor. The suspension wasn’t left out; it has been improved with MacPherson front suspension with aluminum transverse control arms and multi-link rear suspension.


The new A-Class is further enhanced with 4MATIC and more powerful engine variants: four-link rear suspension.
