Mercedes A-Class Saloon Goes On Sale In The UK, Prices Start From £27,875

The new Mercedes A-Class can now be ordered in Saloon bodystyle if you live in the UK, with customers offered a choice of one diesel and one petrol engine from launch.

Prices for the new Mercedes A-Class Saloon in the UK start from £27,875 for the A 180 d Sport, and £28,095 for the A 200 Sport. Both models come fitted with a seven-speed automatic transmission as standard.

The new model is available in two trim options: Sport and AMG Line. Sport models come with twin seven-inch displays featuring the latest MBUX operating system and its advanced voice activation system, comfort suspension, DAB radio, 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic dual-zone climate control, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Keyless Go, Artico and Fléron fabric upholstery and more.

AMG Line models benefit from 18-inch AMG wheels, a more aggressive body kit, a three-spoke sports steering wheel and Artico and Dinamica microfibre upholstery.

Customers will be offered a number of option packages, including the £1,395 Executive package, which replaces the seven-inch infotainment display with a bigger 10.25-inch unit and adds Active Parking Assist, heated front seats and more.

If you want the full version of the twin-display setup, you’ll have to opt for the £2,395 Premium package, which adds the second 10.25-inch display in the instrument binnacle for that lovely widescreen effect, along with 64-color ambient lighting, a better audio system and more.

The A 180 d is powered by a 1.5-liter diesel unit with 114hp (116PS) and 191lb-ft (260Nm) of torque. Mercedes says it returns a combined 68.9mpg UK (4.1l/100km) and emits 110g/km of CO2. The base diesel version of the new A-Class Saloon can reach 62mph (100km/h) from a standstill in 10.5 seconds and top out at 125mph (206km/h).

The A 200 uses the new turbocharged 1.3-liter petrol unit, that here produces 161hp (163PS) and 184lb-ft (250Nm) of torque. Fuel economy is rated at a combined 51.4 mpg UK (5.2l/100km), with CO2 emissions of 119g/km. 0-62mph (100km/h) comes in 8.1 seconds while top speed is 143mph (230km/h).

New models added to Hatchback range too

Mercedes also took the chance and added two new models to the regular A-Class hatchback model; these include the A 220, powered by a turbo 187hp 2.0-liter petrol, and the A 220 4Matic, which sends its power to all four wheels. The new A 220 Hatchback is available in AMG Line only.

First deliveries set for early 2019
