Key facts

The A-Class once again sets the standards for safety, comfort and environmental protection

With more than 500,000 units produced within three and a half years, the second generation A-Class was among the bestsellers in the Mercedes-Benz passenger car range. Now the latest generation of this compact car is showing itself to be more youthful, attractive and environmentally compatible than ever before. This is ensured by a completely revised design, high-grade appointments and new technical developments which further improve safety, comfort and economy. A convenient ECO start-stop function which reduces urban petrol consumption of these BlueEFFICIENCY vehicles by up to nine percent is now available for the high-volume A 150 and A 170 models, for example. For the three-door A 160 CDI, Mercedes-Benz has developed an optional BlueEFFICIENCY package which improves fuel consumption of the Coupé by up to 14 per cent, to 64.2 mpg. Independent experts have acknowledged these great advances in the environmental field with an internationally valid environmental certificate. The A-Class is the world’s first compact car to achieve this accolade.

Since its world premiere in 1997, the A-Class has made a name for itself as a trendsetter and innovative leader in its class. Outstanding safety, great day-to-day flexibility and reliability have always been among the strengths of the A-Class. So far A-Class has captured the enthusiasm of about 1.7 million customers with its distinctive and versatile vehicle concept and over 125,000 of these were sold in the UK alone.

In summer 2008 Mercedes-Benz is presenting the five-door Hatch and the three-door Hatch in completely upgraded versions. Viewed from the front, this compact Mercedes-Benz now appears more youthful and self-confident than before. The sweeping lines of the newly designed headlamps harmoniously combine the front end and flanks, which literally appear to be cast from a single mould. The redesigned front bumper reinforces this impression; its lower air intake is now much larger, emphasising the width of the body. The radiator grille is also in a new design which underlines the progressive aura of the A-Class.
