Making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show, the latest version of the Mercedes A-Class dazzled and impressed the public showcasing the redefined luxury and advanced technology. It seems that Mercedes has spent a lot of time perfecting the A-Class model with the car manufacturer always being one to pay attention to detail. The Mercedes A-Class is available to order now with first deliveries scheduled in May this year. So, if you are a Mercedes
The A-Class had been designed to revival competitive vehicles such as the Audi A3, Volkswagen Golf and BMW 1 Series; with what Mercedes
If you can’t see obvious differences in the exterior of the A-Class, you are sure to see noticeable differences inside; with numerous advanced features that have transformed the model by incorporating intelligent drive technology.
The latest Mercedes A-Class is all about personalisation, the digital screens can be set up to display the preferred combination of the information the driver wishes to see. The system will also track repeated behaviour. For example, if you were to phone the same person around the same time each day, it will then add this as a suggestion and repeat each day at the same time. It will also do this with destinations and offer the best route taking into consideration live traffic updates.
Drivers can use the Mercedes A-Class technology system through voice control, touch screen, touch pads and on the steering wheel. One of the most interesting features is the ‘augmented reality’ navigation; this superimposes your navigation information on top of a live video image that has been taken by the front camera. We know what you might be thinking, not completely necessary, but definitely a nice touch.
One of the new features that
A Route-Based Speed Adjustment also improves the drive, for example, if you are approaching a road bend, this system will reduce the vehicle speed, anticipating the change in the road for you. It would also work the same for T-junctions, roundabouts and toll stations; you can adjust the speed to suit which situation you are experiencing. Once your car has gained an appropriate distance from the vehicle in front, the A-Class will automatically accelerate to the speed you have set. Not only this, but the system also has innovative features such as decelerating on the motorway when approaching your chosen exit.
Active Brake Assist is another advanced feature incorporated into the Mercedes A-Class. This attentive system not only assists your driving but can actually help prevent accidents caused by poor awareness or allowing too little distance. It will provide you with visual and sound warnings if it suspects an impending collision. If you are then breaking too gently, the system will apply brake force that corresponds
Another helpful safety feature is the Blind Spot Assist that can help you during lane changes and detect objects in the car’s blind spot. Another advanced feature that can help prevent potential accidents from
A PRE-SAFE system also gives additional safety features to the A-Class, such as altering the front seat belts, closing windows and panoramic windows and front seats moving position in hazardous situations, all with the aim to reduce the risk of injury.
The camera and navigation data installed to
In time there will be a full range of engines, but for now, the launch new A-Class is introduced in three different engines. All have turbocharged units and one with the availability of a four-cylinder,
A four-wheel drive version will be available, along with three different choices of suspension. The option of a 15mm lower-set up is also offered to give the design a sportier handling and appearance. A damping control system will also use information from the transmission, steering, engine and brakes to adjust the suspension accordingly. So if the car is accelerating or braking, the damping system will stiffen to reduce pitching or body roll, improving the performance of the vehicle.
The Dynamic Select feature allows you to drive the car as you want to. With this
To add to the performance and convenience of the car, the Active Parking Assist package has a 360° camera that helps you when looking for a parking space as well as entering and leaving it. The assistance offers visual and audible warnings when detecting obstacles and provides manoeuvring help in and out of the spaces. Not only does the Mercedes A-Class provide optimum performance for when you are driving, but also for when you are parking.
