Following the reveal of the V177 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan in July, the German automaker has now released more information about the model, including pricing and list of available equipment. The A-Class Sedan will go on sale in selected markets in early 2019, although it isn’t confirmed if Malaysia will receive the model.

We’ll begin with engine options, starting with a M282 1.33 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, which was developed in partnership with Renault and produces 161 hp (163 PS) at 5,500 rpm and 250 Nm of torque at 1,620 rpm.

This engine is used for the A 200, and can be paired with a six-speed manual or seven-speed 7G-DCT dual-clutch automatic transmission. Going the manual route will net you a century sprint time of 8.3 seconds, and the latter completes the feat in 8.1 seconds – both top out at 230 km/h.

Aside from the A 200, all other engines are paired exclusively with the 7G-DCT. This includes the M260 mill in the A 220 4Matic, A 250 and A 250 4Matic. The 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol unit makes 188 hp (190 PS) at 5,800 rpm and 300 Nm at 1,600 rpm in the A 220 4Matic, while the A 250 cars have 221 hp (224 PS) at 5,800 rpm and 350 Nm at 1,800 rpm at their disposal.

Performance-wise, the A 220 4Matic goes from a rest to 100 km/h in seven seconds, and will hit a top speed of 237 km/h. Meanwhile, both A 250 variants will take 6.3 seconds and will max out at 250 km/h.

A sole diesel option is in the form of the A 180 d that employs an OM608 1.5 litre turbocharged four-cylinder unit with 114 hp (116 PS) at 4,000 rpm and 260 Nm from 1,750 to 2,750 rpm. The A 180 d is the slowest of the bunch, with a top speed of just 206 km/h and 0-100 km/h time of 10.6 seconds. However, it boasts a fuel consumption of as low as 4.1 l/100 km compared to the petrol-powered options that range between 5.2 to 6.5 l/100 km.

Available equipment lines include Style, Progressive and AMG Line, where the first of the trio features a diamond radiator grille with pins in black, silver-painted louvre and chrome inlay, body-coloured side skirts and chrome-plated beltline trim strip. Interior items include Luxury seats with Seat Comfort package, upholstery in Artico leather/Bertrix fabric as well as Light and Visibility packages.

The Progressive equipment line adds on chrome-plated window line trim strips, visible non-functional tailpipe trims, rear apron with chrome trim, Artico leather/Fléron fabric upholstery, leather-wrapped multifunction sports steering wheel, black decorative stitching, along with trim in dark and light carbon-fibre look and silver.

As for the AMG Line, there’s an AMG front apron with a chrome front splitter, AMG side sill panels and AMG rear apron with chrome trim and visible non-functional tailpipe trims. Other aspects include a diamond radiator grille with chrome pins, branded front brake calipers, perforated front brake discs (A 220), lowered comfort suspension and variable ratio direct-steer system.

On the inside, the AMG Line introduces sports seats with Seat Comfort package and adjustable head restraints, AMG brushed stainless steel sports pedals, unique floor mats, three-spoke, flat-bottomed multifunction sports steering wheel in Nappa leather with decorative stitching and silver chrome trim.

The available upholstery choices are Artico leather/Dinamica microfibre and Dinamica trim, or upholstery in Artico leather and aluminium trim. Depending on the preferred combination, the cabin’s decorative stitching on the steering wheel and gearshift lever is either red or black.

An optional Leather package is offered for the Progressive and AMG Line, which includes decorative stitching on beltline and instrument panel. Also available is the Night Package that sees the side mirror housings, front grille louvre, rear apron trim, beltline trim strip and window line trim painted in black. Wheel sizes range from 16 to 19 inches, depending on the selected equipment line.

The largest wheel option is standard for the special Edition 1 of the A-Class Sedan, where copper accents are found on the car’s exterior, including on the grille pins and wheels. Other standard features are LED High Performance headlamps, sport seats with adjustable head restraints and ambient lighting.

Those that need a more advanced headlamp setup can opt for the optional Multibeam LED system with 18 individually-actuated LEDs housed in each cluster. The Driving Assistance package adds systems derived from the S-Class like Active Distance Control Distronic, Active Steering Assist, Active Speed Limit Assist; Active Brake Assist, Evasive Steering Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist and Pre-Safe Plus. The heads-up display is another available option.

A big talking point of the new A-Class is the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) multimedia system that features intelligent voice control. On the A-Class Sedan, the system in its most basic form (Basic Navigation package) consists of two seven-inch displays, Touch Control buttons and touchpad.
