Mercedes expands A-Class range 14 | 11 | 2018

    MERCEDES HAS INCREASED its latest A-Class range with the introduction of two new diesels. Available to order now at Scottish dealerships, the first A200d Sport and A220d AMG Line models will be delivered to customers in the Spring. Prices stat at £28,805 and £30,005 respectively.

    Both models use a variation of the same 2.0-litre unit, with each producing different power outputs. The Mercedes-specific engine first appeared in the E220d.

    While the A200d delivers 148bhp and 320nm, the A220d produces 187bhp and 400nm. In terms of pace, both cars cover the 0-62mph sprint in 8.1secs and 7.0s respectively, with top speeds maxing out at 137mph and 146mph. (Related: Mercedes ace Hamilton seals fifth F1 world title)

    Fuel figures are similar, with the A200d returning 67.3mpg, marginally better than the more powerful A220d at 65.7mpg. Both cars are mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox with power delivered to the front wheels.

    Available in both Sport and AMG Line trims, the A200d gets a pair of 7-inch infotainment screens with a DAB radio, a mix of fabric and artificial leather upholstery, LED headlights, a reversing camera and 17in alloys as standard.

    Stepping up to the AMG Line model costs an extra £1200, but adds an AMG body kit and front grille and 18in alloys. Inside, the sports seats are finished in Alcantara-effect and leather-effect trims, plus there’s a sports steering wheel. The A220d is only available in AMG Line.

    As you would expect, both cars are available with a huge range of options. These include the £1395 Executive line, which adds larger 10.25-inch media screen, active park assist, heated front seats and folding/dimming mirrors. There’s also the Premium Line, which costs £2395 and adds 10.25-inch instrument cluster, ambient lighting, keyless entry and an uprated sound system. The most expensive pack, Premium Plus, will set you back and adds Premium line plus electric front seats, a panoramic roof and multi-beam LED lights.

    And for an extra 495 quid — as long as you’ve bought one of the three packages listed above — you can opt for the augmented navigation system. This superimposes directions on to images displayed from a forward-facing camera.
