Modern and young-looking Mercedes A180 AMG

The design of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class is young and modern and has even more emotional appeal after the model update: with more powerful front and rear aprons as well as attractive materials, colours and new light-alloy wheels.

The front module with its pronounced arrow shape and the distinctive diamond grille ensure a self-confident appearance and an energetic look. The radiator shroud is designed as a black diamond grille already in standard specification to boost the sporty character. At the rear, the LED taillights give the car a striking visual appearance and improve visibility.

The cabin was designed with a love of detail and features further enhanced exclusivity and sporty flair. The shapes, surfaces and materials go together to form a high-quality and harmonious whole. New high-quality trim elements adorn the area of the instrument panel and the new design of the instrument cluster with a colour multi-function display round out the high-quality interior of the A-Class.

The A180 AMG is propelled by a newly-developed 1595 cc 4-cylinder BlueEFFICIENCY engine with 122 hp and 200 Nm on tap. Mated to it is a 7-speed 7G-DCT transmission, 0-100 km/h takes 8.9 seconds while top speed is in excess of 200 km/h, very good for a 1.6-litre hatchback weighing 1.4 tonnes.

As the car is the AMG variant, it comes with modern goodies such as AMG aero bodystyling and AMG 18-inch alloy wheels.
