Mercedes-Benz reveals new three-door A-class

MERCEDES-Benz has revealed the face of the second generation A-class before its launch in 2005. Available with a choice of three petrol engines and with three diesel variants, the new A-class will also come in a three-door variant for the first time.


Mercedes is promising greater comfort from a new rear axle and selective damping system, as well as better performance and fuel consumption. The A-class will be available with a new continuously variable transmission called Autotronic as an option across the range.

Customers will be able to choose from a 95bhp 1.5-litre, a 115bhp 1.7-litre and 136bhp 2.0-litre in the petrol range, or an 82bhp A160 CDI, a 109bhp A180 CDI and a 140bhp A200 CDI. Full UK pricing and specification will be announced later this year.
