Special Features of the Mercedes-Benz A180 AMG Executive

Bigger and deeper bumpers at the front and rear are sleeker with the chrome trims, perfectly matched with the AMG alloy wheels delivering a more premium entrance for this new hatchback.
Touchpad on Centre Console
A smartly designed touchpad and a rotary knob on the centre console allows you to operate the inner dash touchscreen.
Its location and setup provide you with a more comfortable way of controlling what’s in front of you especially when driving.
With its high-tech multitouch gestures, a modern and playful way of controlling its functions is possible by either touching, pinching to zoom, or swiping through the menus.
LED High Performance Headlamps
Its light color distribution is wide and similar to daylight. The low energy consumption is also a plus factor. As a result, the new A180 AMG Executive gives you greater safety at night as it enhances your visibility.
The persuasive style of the clean lines delivers a more exceptional light display.
Air Vents with Surround in Silver Chrome
The five adjustable air vents in the dash and a pair in the rear-cabin are surrounded by silver chrome materials, creating a more elegant look when you are inside the new A180.
These air vents help maintain that enjoyment as you take your long drives.
“Hey Mercedes” Voice Activation
Part of the latest MBUX technology, this intelligent voice control has natural language comprehension that can be activated either through a button on the steering wheel or just by saying “Hey Mercedes”.
Saying indirectly that you “feel cold” can be understood by this system and automatically lowers the temperature by one degree.
It also supports other infotainment functions such as phone calls, destination input, music selection, weather forecasts, and writing and hearing messages.
Innovative Design with Comfort
To suit individual preference, the luxury automatic climate control in the Mercedes-Benz A200 AMG PREMIUM PLUS is two-zoned.
The THERMOTRONIC system controls the climate in each zone by automatically keeping it constant at the preferred levels of climate modes.
This innovative design also features a filter that prevents almost all kinds of dust, pollen, and soot from the ambient air to get into the interior. Its turbine-inspired vents complete the look and character of this top-class feature.
Mercedes-Benz A180 AMG Executive Interior
The 10.25-inch touchscreen media display and the 7-inch instrument cluster both augment the interior features of the Mercedes-Benz A180 AMG Executive.
The touchscreen media display allows you to access the brand new MBUX multimedia system of Mercedes and experience its latest voice activation “Hey Mercedes”.
The instrument cluster serves as a fluid level warning indicator for fuel, coolant, oil, and washer fluid. Its other features can be easily operated through your steering wheel such as its multifunction display of current consumption indicator.
Spacious and Practical
The new A180 gains a lower hump running down the center of its floor, providing more foot space and wider seating space for the rear passengers. Drop the flexible 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats and you get a large, flat, and extended load space.
Seat Comfort Package
More options for ergonomic individualization and desired seat position with the height-adjustable front passenger’s seat, seat cushion length adjustment, and seat cushion angle adjustment feature for the driver’s and front passenger’s.
3-spoke Multifunction Leather-Trimmed Steering Wheel
A sportier steering wheel welcomes you with its flattened bottom section. A pleasing and comfortable grip on the wheel is also possible with the perforated leather in the grip area.
This 3-spoke steering wheel is also multifunction, allowing you to control the interior functions more comfortably while your eyes are on the road.
MBUX Multimedia System
This revolutionary infotainment system offers a smartphone-style user experience. It can control numerous vehicle settings such as seat positions, driving modes, and in-car entertainment.
Your mobile phone calls and diary can also be accessed through this system. Its sharp and beautifully designed high-resolution graphics enhance the quality of your ride experience with the new A180.
Comfort and Practicality Combo
Situated between the driver and the co-driver seats, the centre armrest is matched with stowage compartment.
A comfortable armrest is formed if the stowage compartment is closed, and when not, it serves as a practical space for your documents and beverages. It can hold a beverage can, bottle or cup with up to 1.5-litre contents, suitable for your daily drives.
Exterior of the Mercedes-Benz A180 AMG Executive
Elegant Front Design
Longer in wheelbase than before, the new Mercedes-Benz A180 AMG Executive gains a more elegant front design matched with the slim and brighter headlights.
Its AMG bodystyling and AMG-specific features perfectly blend in with the subtle yet striking beltline strips in chrome and body-colored door handles.
Striking Rear Profile
You’ll instantly know that it’s the new A180 once you lay your eyes on the rear end profile. Its distinctively styled slim LED tail lamps are more noticeable as it parallels the two visible tailpipes.
This exhaust system gains quality chrome-trimmed elements and a rear apron, displaying a good balance between elegance and sportiness.
18-inch AMG 5-twin-spoke Alloy Wheels
The classic 18” AMG alloy wheels feature a 5-twin-spoke design, painted titanium grey with high-sheen finish. The upscale design of the wheels is completed with its summer tyres, the best choice for dry and warm conditions.
Electrically Adjustable Door Mirrors
Operated electrically by a rotary switch found in the armrest of the driver’s door, the door mirrors are also heated and has LED indicators, allowing you to counteract with misting situations.
The heating system can also be activated along with the rear window heater when the engine is running. This feature becomes more convenient when changing drivers and when you are driving in cold weather.
LED High-Level Third Brake Light
Visibility and communication are the roles of this feature. Integrated as an LED third brake light provides more safety to other drivers and for you as it shines brighter than the standard one.
This is more useful when other driver’s view of the left and right brake lights is interrupted by other vehicles.
Impressive Engine Performance
Powered by a 1.3-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, the new A180 AMG Executive performs well as it produces 136 horsepower and 200 Nm of torque. This family hatchback can achieve zero to 100 km/h in 9.8 seconds, with a top speed of 215 km/h.

Mercedes-Benz A180 AMG Executive
History of Mercedes-Benz A180 AMG Executive
The Mercedes-Benz A180 AMG Executive is a subcompact executive car. It also belongs to the A-Class lineup manufactured by the German automobile manufacturer Mercedes-Benz. Its first generation was launched in 1997, followed by the second generation production in 2004 and third in 2012.
In 1997, the first-generation was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show and was given the name ‘Baby Benz’. It also introduced the innovative floor which they called ‘the sandwich’. The interior space inside the A-Class was improved by elevating the floor and mounting the engine partly under it. It also improved the space inside the A-Class despite its trademark as a compact car.
While few doubted the innovative capability of the original A-Class, there are still some who thought that its eccentric design was holding it back from a younger group of audience. Thus, the third-generation of the A-Class deserted the sandwich floor and resorted to a conventional family hatchback design.
This continued in the fourth and latest generation where the new Mercedes-Benz A180 AMG Executive is also a part of. In this new generation, the A-Class lineup gets a sleeker exterior design and a more improved interior, matched with a wide array of cutting-edge technology features.
The new Mercedes-Benz A180 AMG Executive stands out amongst the compact luxury hatchback segment while it also wears the iconic AMG features from Mercedes. Its longer wheelbase provides a more appealing outlook as it is also matched with the 18-inch titanium grey AMG alloy wheels.
While the previous generations were introduced with an unconventional design, the new Mercedes-Benz A180 AMG Executive is more known today as the perfect subcompact family executive car for everyone. Its smooth performance also makes it more appealing for a wider range of audiences.
The fourth and current generation of the A-Class is available as a five-door hatchback, a long-wheelbase sedan that is exclusive to China, and a four-door sedan. Some of its other variants include the A160, A200, A220, A250, A35 AMG, A35 AMG, and A45 S AMG.
In 2019, the Mercedes A-Class gained global growth in several markets including the United Kingdom, China, United States, and Germany
