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, the A-Class Saloon has a proper boot with bootlid. It is 130mm longer than its hatchback sibling.
Inside, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class Saloon shares the same cabin design and features with A-Class Hatchback and CLA-Class Coupe. This includes aerospace-inspired, turbine-look air vents, multi-colour ambient lighting and the fabulous Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system with its dual 10.25-inch touchscreens and “Hey Mercedes” command which will allow you to request for assistance or information.
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class Saloon variant shown here is the A200 Saloon AMG Premium Plus.
Powered by a turbocharged 1.3-litre 4-cylinder powerplant with 163 hp and 250 Nm, it is connected to a 7-speed 7G-DCT gearbox driving the front wheels. The saloon takes just 8.1 seconds to zoom from 0 to 100 km/h. Keep your right foot floored and watch the speedometer’s needle swing all the way to 225 km/h!
The Mercedes-Benz A200 Saloon AMG Premium Plus’ key features include 18-inch AMG alloy wheels, ARTICO leather/DINAMICA microfibre with red contrast stitching, brushed stainless steel sports pedals with rubber studs, AMG bodystyling and exclusive Premium Plus items such as multi-beam LED headlights with Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus and panoramic glass sunroof.
