The new star of the Mercedes-Benz product portfolio – the A-Class – is available now for order to all the Romanian customers. The customers could place the order at all the Romanian Authorized Passenger Cars Sales Partners, a press release informs.
Prices for the new A Class start at EUR 25.460 for the A 200 with 120 kW (163 hp) and a manual transmission (combined fuel consumption 5.8 l/100 km, combined CO2 emissions 133 g/km ). The market launch for Romania begins in May, when the cars will be present in the showrooms.
The A-Class will be available as an “Edition 1” model at an additional price of EUR 5,820 for around one year after the market launch. Both on the exterior and in the interior, the exclusive special model has numerous colour highlights in Edition green. In addition equipment features such as LED High Performance headlamps, sport seats and ambience lighting are standard equipment. The Edition 1 is available with all engine variants.
The new A-Class is equipped with the latest driving assistance systems, which give the driver cooperative support. This means that it has the highest level of active safety in its segment, with functions adopted from the S Class. For the first time, the A-Class is able to drive semi-autonomously in certain driving situations. Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC and Active Steering Assist now support the driver even more conveniently in keeping a safe distance and steering, and the vehicle speed is now also automatically adjusted on bends, at road junctions and on roundabouts.
The Driving Assistance package (EUR 1,510, expected to be available from fourth quarter of 2018) includes the following systems: Active Distance Control DISTRONIC with route-based speed adjustment; Active Steering Assist with Active Lane Change Assist and Active Emergency Stop Assist; Active Speed Limit Assist; Active Brake Assist with cross-traffic function; Evasive Steering Assist; Active Blind Spot Assist; PRE-SAFE® PLUS. PRE-SAFE® PLUS can recognise an imminent rear-end collision. If the danger of a collision persists, the system can lock the brakes of the stationary vehicle before a rear-end collision to prevent it from being shunted forward by the impact. This can minimise the risk of injury by reducing the forward jolt caused by the impact.
The new A-Class is the first Mercedes-Benz model to feature the completely new multimedia system MBUX – Mercedes-Benz User Experience, which also ushers in a new era in Mercedes me connectivity.
