Lela S. Storey. Mercedes Benz. May 05th , 2017.
While there are still a couple of months for the Frankfurt Motor Show opens its doors, Mercedes-Benz is already showing us some of the innovations that lead. The first is the facelift of A Class. In addition to cosmetic changes, there are new mechanical equipment and more powerful.
In addition to the GLC, and possibly the new C-Class Coupe, Mercedes-Benz will take a more discreet to Frankfurt novelty. I refer to the slight upgrade that will receive the Mercedes-Benz A Class comprising a series of improvements not only from the aesthetic, but also at the technical level.
On the front are exhibited slight changes in the bumper, the headlamps can now have the High Performance LED system as an option (standard on the A 45), there are new alloy wheel designs, as well as colors for body, extending its range of options. They also change in its internal design subsequent optics.
Inside the changes they are even more subtle. Opposite the model launched in 2011, we now find a new eight-inch central display frameless, new upholstery colors and inlays for the interior including seats tones Sahara Beige / Black Leather with Exclusive new package, or new upholstery with green or red stitching for the Style line.
The technology is also updated with the addition of multimedia system integration with Apple carplay and MirrorLink. In the first case, you can configure the navigation, telephone, SMS and e-mails or by via Siri (voice of Apple manager) command. All this is provided for in the new eight-inch screen, as I said previously, and that means a module only 1 cm wider than before.
Safety, preserves the ATTENTION ASSIST drowsiness detection systems for the driver or DISTRONIC PLUS, which is the way Mercedes-Benz is calling your active cruise control speed. In addition to these technologies, as well as other improvements were part of the optional equipment of Mercedes-Benz A Class.
For example, the COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS replaces the COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST by adding the Adaptive Brake Assist system, autonomous emergency braking. For the ATTENTION ASSIST extending its operating range between 60 and 200 km / h using a series of warnings that measure the degree of driver fatigue.
The chassis now receives management system DYNAMIC SELECT selector that lets you work on four levels: "Comfort", "Sport", "Eco" and "Single". In turn, optionally you can choose the suspension with adaptive damping.
For 45, plus there is the possibility of having the DYNAMIC PLUS AMG that adds a limited slip differential for the front axle and AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension, joins SELECT DYNAMIC All settings of the options "Sport +" and " Race ", and allows three levels of action for electronic stability control.
In the equipment he was also a review, adding new versions. Thus we find the "Motorsport Edition", which takes inspiration from the aesthetics of the Formula 1 team MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS, using an aesthetic sport kit, and combining the colors worn by the car Nico Rosberg and defending champion category, Lewis Hamilton.
Improvements also came under the hood, with the emergence of more powerful engines, although known in some cases, while new, less powerful options, yet more accessible within the range are also incorporated.
An example of this is the new A 160, which has an impeller with 102 horsepower extracted from a drive turbocharged 1.6-liter, also erogando 180 Nm of torque. It born in the range 180 d diesel with 109 horsepower, and 220 d now takes 177 hp, representing 7 hp more than before.
Following the naftera range, the 250 now add a new six-speed manual transmission, and in the specific case of the A 250 Sport, passing of the known 211 horsepower to 218. Additionally, have the "Launch Assist "in the mechanics.
The most powerful of the range of Mercedes-Benz A Class, it is now even more powerful, thanks to the reconfiguration of the combustion process and the turbo. Box relations MG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7 third to seventh gear is also shortened.
Thus, Mercedes-AMG 4MATIC 45 passes for 360 to 381 horsepower, also having 475 Nm of torque. With these improvements, acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 0.4 seconds down, remaining at 4.2 s, while the top speed remains electronically limited to 250 km / h.
To be sold then the Hall of Frankfurt (in Europe arrive in showrooms in late September), his arrival in Country of time was not confirmed. Doing some "futurology" is to estimate the renovated A Class may be coming in the course of next year.
