    Mercedes-Benz A-class sedan to be available in three variants

    Following its India debut at the 2020 Auto Expo, Mercedes has revealed more details about the India-spec A-class Limousine. A replacement for the first-gen CLA in India, the A-class sedan will be available in three variants – petrol, diesel and AMG. The carmaker’s website also says that bookings for the A-class sedan are now open.

    The petrol and diesel models will be available in a single Progressive Line trim. Equipment on offer will include twin 10.25-inch displays for the infotainment and instrumentation, the brands new MBUX infotainment system with integrated navigation, connected-car technology, dual-zone climate control, LED headlamps, panoramic sunroof, cruise control, powered front seats with memory and wireless smartphone charging.

    The AMG model will get more aggressive looks, in line with the car shown at the Expo, with sportier bumpers and side skirts, different design alloy wheels and spoiler element on the boot-lid. The cabin too will get sportier touches with model-specific front seats, AMG steering wheel, along with different trim inserts. The AMG model additionally will come with a Burmester surround sound system as standard.

    While Mercedes has not revealed the engine details for the A-class, the petrol unit on offer is expected to be the 1.3-litre turbo-petrol engine that’s good for 163hp (A 200). The A-class diesel is expected to get a 116hp, 1.5-litre engine (A 180d). Coming to the AMG, in markets abroad, the A-class sedan is currently only available in AMG A 35-spec, which was the model shown at the Expo. Therefore, it is safe to say that the AMG A-class sedan for India will come powered by a 306hp, 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine with standard four-wheel drive.

    Expect prices for the A-class sedan to be in the region of Rs 32-40 lakh (ex-showroom) for the standard petrol and diesel models, with the AMG being priced a fair deal higher.

    Presently as it stands the A-class will rival the new BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe, which is expected to arrive later this year.

    Poll of the month

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
