Mercedes-Benz A-Class Named Luxury Car Of The Year
|   Wednesday, May 08, 2013
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class is a supermini car, manufactured by the German automobile company Mercedes-Benz. Now a day, the car is becoming a popular small family car. The 1st generation model (W168) was launched in 1997. The 2nd generation (W169) appeared in 2004. And the all-new generation (W176) launched in late 2012. Despite high compliment and well over 1.4 million sales, not entire the ripples that came back to shore were welcome. It was too ungainly, too upright and not sporty enough for customers' sharpening taste buds.


The A-class finished short on desirability and high on expense. So, for its third generation model some 15 years after the first launched, latest A-class has rejected the recipe. This Benz A-class's idea has been squashed long and low and rendered lip- smackingly svelte.

The Benz A-class hatchback is available with a choice of 4 diesel and 3 petrol power plants teamed up with two different gearboxes. The automaker is reducing power plants for its beginning level vehicles for minor emissions, enhanced economy and performance. The start-stop system will be accessible as standard on all lower levels, whereas enhanced fuel injectors, turbo charging and the small coefficient drag of 0.27 will make them more efficient. Inspiration for the A 180 Capacitor Discharge Ignition will come from a 1460CC engine, which will be emitting 98g/km of CO2, delivering 26 kilometers per liter and pulsating 108PS of power.

The all-new Mercedes Benz A-Class has been engineered and designed in a joint venture with Renault. Nissan-Renault and Mercedes Benz inked a deal in the year 2010 for developing and design power trains for compact cars. Powering the A200 Capacitor Discharge Ignition is a 1.8 Ltpower plant that has built up Euro VI compliant. It mixes out 134PS of power with three hundred newton meters of torque.

All diesel power plants include a new hydraulic mounts for reducing vibration and noise. The range topping A220 Capacitor Discharge Ignition is boosted by a 2.1Lt engine, which is good for generating 168PS of power with three hundred and fifty newton meters of torque and increases speed of 0 to100 Km/hr in the time span of 7.8 seconds.

The petrol model of Mercedes Benz A-Class offers three new turbo charged power plants using BlueDirect technology that has been modified from V6 and V8 engines from bigger models. Inspiration for the A180 derives from a 1.6Lt power plant, which is very good for throbbing 120PS of power with two hundred newton meters of torque and delivering the fuel economy of eighteen Km/Lt. The A200 petrol goes with a higher performing engine that produces 154PS of power and 250 newton meters of torque.

The leading A250 comes with a 2Lt petrol turbo charged engine. That is good for pulsating 208PS of power and 350 newton meters of torque and increases speed of 0 to 100 Km/hr in the time range of 6.6 seconds with the highest speed of 240 Km/hr.

Standard on all A-class models of Mercedes Benz has a six-speed manual transmission with a dual clutch seven-speed 7G-DCT gearbox. Both gearboxes were engineered and designed to share and sync many components.
