2021 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Limousine Review with Images
Mercedes-Benz A-Class Limousine Detailed Review
Mercedes-Benz has just launched its A-Class limousine in India and it replaces the CLA which was discontinued some time back. The A-Class name is not unfamiliar to India as we had the hatchback version with the same name. Now India is getting a proper sedan or it is being called as "Limousine". The A-Class Limousine is the most affordable Mercedes in India but is it any good, here is our review.
A-Class Limousine Exterior Review
The A-Class is compact and roughly the size of a midsize sedan. It has a length of 4549mm and a width of 1796mm. That is around the same size as a Honda City. However, in terms of looks, the A-Class is quite attractive and is meant to appeal to the younger set of buyers. It has a flowing nose and a proportionate design but it gets a proper sedan look with more thought to the space inside. We liked the slim LED headlamps and the tail-lamps along with strong lines at the side.
A-Class Limousine Interior Review
The interior of the A-Class Limousine is arguably its best bit as it feels luxurious and well made like any other Mercedes. Unlike the CLA the A-Class has all of the latest technology and design. We love the soft-touch materials used on the inside along with the high quality features like the aircon vents to the same scroller for the steering controls. Just like all of the new Mercs, the interior gets the two 10.25inch screens joined together. There is a digital instrument cluster and a touch screen. The A-Class gets everything including the all digital instrument cluster which has many customizable menus. The touch screen quality and look is also brilliant. Then below the centre console you get a touchpad and controls on the side. Even the climate control knob is of high quality.
Compared to the previous CLA, the new A-Class Limousine has a much longer wheelbase of 2,729mm. Hence, the rear seat is much better and can fit two tall adults very well. The rear seat offers good comfort along with more than decent headroom/legroom. In-fact the space here is better than the C-Class! It is however suited for two.
A-Class Limousine Features
Alongside the two 10.25 inch screens, the A-Class Limousine gets all luxury and premium features like front wireless charger, touchpad, two-zone climate control, rear seat armrest, panoramic sunroof, MBUX infotainment system, connected car tech which can connect to you Alexa or Google Home plus more. There are also powered seats for the driver plus passenger with memory and more.
A-Class Limousine Engine
The A200 is a turbo petrol which seems a bit small on paper with a 1.3l turbo unit which makes 163hp and 250Nm. It does give a good ARAI figure of 17.5 kmpl. The gearbox is a 7-speed dual clutch auto.
The diesel is a 2.0 unit with the A200d which makes 150hp and 320Nm. Also it has a new 8-speed automatic. The mileage is an impressive 21.3 kmpl. The diesel is the one to have with the engine being smooth and also having enough power/torque. The power is more effortless and is refined too. The diesel fits the A-Class more and whether on the city or highway, the diesel will be more fun too. Compared to the CLA, the A-Class Limousine rides very well and is suited for our roads. There is also no problem with regards to the ground clearance too.
Prices start at Rs 39.9 lakh and go till Rs 40.9 lakh for the diesel. There is no base variant on offer. The A-Class also comes with an 8-year warranty on engine and transmission. We think for the price the A-Class Limousine is a capable luxury sedan that feels expensive and premium while it drives well too. In other words it is a proper luxury sedan that is well priced.
