The Mercedes-Benz A-Class Saloon shares the same front-wheel-drive MFA2 (Modular Front Architecture) platform as the Mercedes-Benz A-Class Hatchback – the wheelbase of both cars is 2729mm.
However, as the A-Class Saloon has a proper boot with a boot lid, it’s 130mm longer than its hatchback sibling. Come, take a look at the new Mercedes A200 Saloon AMG Premium.
A longer lifetime, faster illumination, and beams that mimic daylight much more precisely than xenon headlamps, multi-component LED headlamps to improve both vision and visibility during night driving.
LED Daytime running lamps and all other front lighting functions are integrated into the flowing sculpture of the headlamp assemblies, making the design as attractive as it is illuminating.
Inside, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class Saloon shares the same cabin design and features with A-Class Hatchback and CLA-Class Coupe.
This means aerospace-inspired, turbine-look air vents, multi-color ambient lighting, and the fabulous Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system with its dual 10.25-inch touchscreens and “Hey Mercedes” command which once used will allow you to request assistance or information.
Our Mercedes-Benz A-Class Saloon variant shown here is the Mercedes-Benz A200 Saloon AMG Premium.
