India’s largest luxury carmaker Mercedes-Benz India today introduced the new A 200 Limousine and the dynamic Mercedes-AMG A 45 S 4MATIC+ Face Lift. With perfectly balanced proportions, and high-quality attention to detail in its design, featuring the latest MBUX and New Generation Telematics (NTG7), the new Mercedes‐Benz A-Limousine presents itself as more intelligent, and stylish with enhanced convenience features. The A 200d will be launched in Q4 of 2023. The Mercedes-AMG A 45 S 4MATIC+ comes with powerful 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The car is now more intelligent and intuitive and proudly dons the prestigious AMG crest on the front – a testimony to its ‘One Man, One Engine’ heritage.
Top highlights of the new Mercedes A-200 Limousine:
Striking and sporty exterior: The new A‐Class conveys power and dynamism dominated by the forward- sloping bonnet with its two power bulges and steep ‘shark nose’. This is accentuated by the redesigned radiator grille with Mercedes-Benz star pattern. The sporty character is underlined by externally flush wheels with new 17-inch 5 twin-spoke alloys. The new LED rear lights ensure a fascinating and emotionally appealing appearance by both day and night.
High-tech Interiors: Exclusiveness is reflected in the interior of the new A‐Class. The absolute highlight is the standard freestanding dual-screen display of 10.25‐inch each, taking centre stage. The revised steering wheel matches the high-tech character of the car with the touch control panels.
More digital, smarter, safer: In the new A-Limousine, both hardware and software have taken a major leap forward: the latest generation of MBUX is intuitive to operate and capable of learning. The driver and central displays create a holistic, aesthetic experience and can be customised as desired with the help of the newly designed display styles (Classic with all relevant driver information, Sporty with the dynamic rev counter, Discreet with reduced content), three modes (Navigation, Assistance, Service). The Zero Layer concept of the screen is a perfect example of how the car learns your preferences and displays frequently used icons. The cutting-edge features also include Car-to-X communication to further enhance safety.
Mercedes Me: With the activation of online services in the Mercedes me App, the ‘Hey Mercedes’ voice assistant in the new A-Class is now even more capable of dialogue and learning. For example, certain actions can also be triggered without the activation term “Hey Mercedes”. The MBUX voice assistant can also explain vehicle functions and provide support when you want to connect your smartphone via Bluetooth or search for the first-aid kit.
Infotainment & Connectivity: The telematics system has been revised and impresses with its new design and improved performance. Now wireless connectivity with smartphones is possible via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. The USB charging capacity has been increased by 20%.
Safety First: The new A-Class comes with 7 airbags; the addition of a knee airbag enhances the safety of the car.
KEYLESS-GO: Another feature to debut in the A- Limousine. Your KEYLESS-GO vehicle key can stay in your pocket, you don’t even need to hold it in your hand. The car recognises its owner thanks to the stored access and drive authorisation. Grasp the door handle, open, climb in, and drive off – KEYLESS-GO is always a convenient experience.
HANDS-FREE ACCESS: The boot lid features contactless opening as the sensor area beneath the rear bumper detects a kicking motion with your foot. This is particularly useful when you come to drop off heavy bags in the boot.
Digital Key Handover: Your vehicle can be shared by friends and family – wherever you are, and easily via the Mercedes me App. The primary user can unlock the vehicle remotely via the app, and activate the key stored in the vehicle for another approved user when they want to use the car.
