Performance & Drive:

The Mercedes A-Class is entertaining to drive, and its 2.0 liters turbocharged engine delivers more power with less fuel consumption. Its multi-spark ignition fine-tunes the engine in milliseconds. One of its best is its 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that combines the sporty character of a manual and the refinement of an automatic transmission and gives better efficiency. The gear changes are quicker than the traditional manual gearbox. It offers a variety of driving modes ECO, Sports mode, and Comfort mode. The driving modes can be selected through shift paddles mounted on the steering wheel. The ECO Start and Stop system helps you shut the engine automatically at stoplights to save fuel, and when you lift off the brake, the engine restarts again. The four-wheel-drive is standard in the Mercedes Benz A-Class, but the optional all-wheel-drive can also opt. The 4Matic all-wheel drive gives you extra confidence, especially when driving in unfavorable road conditions. The torque distribution is even to the front and rear axles and monitors continually for wheel slips. It offers an adaptive cruise that helps to stop and go conveniently in traffic, and safety sensors cover your ears when there is a crash risk. The blind-spot monitoring system is given as standard in all trims and the 360-degree view camera helps you park your cars safely.
