The A- Class Limousine, is the company’s entry level offering in the luxury space and it gives all of those aspiring to get into the space a chance to get there.
A whole bunch of you might have a bucket list and we know that for a fact, because it was fairly recently that we asked you about it in the form of a contest. And as we went through the lists that you folks had submitted, the one thing that stood out was either driving a luxury car, owning one or going to the track with one. So, most of you had a car in mind and we were more than happy to see that. Because, you know what, a luxury car just propels one’s image, and people around you get to know the lifestyle you’re leading. Of course, it just elevates every aspect of you and no wonder, so many of you want that piece of joy and a sense of pride. You want to step out of your house, head to the car park and smile at it, because it’s your source of pride and that happiness, no money can buy.
The Mercedes-Benz A-Limousine is available with both petrol and diesel engine options
And Mercedes-Benz India makes this journey extremely easy for many. The A- Class Limousine, is the company’s entry level offering in the luxury space and it gives all of those aspiring to get into the space a chance to get there. You want choices, you get it in the form of petrol and diesel engines. Mind you, there’s the most powerful AMG version too but we’ll get to that. The petrol A 200 draws power from the 1.3-litre turbocharged mill with 163 bhp and 250 Nm of peak torque on offer. The diesel version will be using the 2.0-litre four-cylinder oil burner with 150 bhp and 320 Nm of peak torque. The petrol engine is paired with a 7-speed DCT, while the diesel gets an 8-speed DCT. Powerful? yes, intimidating? No! Because for that you need the AMG version, one that’s Made-In-India, yes, you read that right!
