Introduce

Sales of Mercedes-Benz India boomed in 2013 and this increase has a lot bự do with the German brand making its cars more appealing bự younger buyers. By introducing cars like the A-Class and B-Class, Mercedes managed bự bury its conservative image and create a new line of premium cars for value-sensitive young customers.

A year later, both vehicles continue bự perform well in their respective segments. In particular, the A-Class was a real game changer for Mercedes-Benz India when it first arrived. While its ability bự please most young people is a big plus for the brand, the A-Class (especially the diesel variants) really begs for a better equipped interior. With the new limited edition A-Class Edition 1, Mercedes hopes bự amplify the premium hatchback’s appeal in the value-conscious entry-level premium car segment.

Exterior

Globally, Mercedes wanted bự celebrate the launch of a new car by introducing its special edition ‘Edition 1’. Previously, the brand sold Edition 1 versions of the CLA, GLA and A45 AMG. However, for the Indian market, Mercedes has launched the A-Class Edition 1 with all the essential upgrades that the standard diesel A-Class always needs. Speaking of the essentials, the Edition 1 benefits from a higher ground clearance, and the result of this is that the car sits slightly higher than the standard A-Class.

Take a glance at one or two and you’ll notice new alloy wheels and the words ‘Edition 1’ on the sides. The new Tremolite Gray 5-spoke alloy (as Mercedes calls it) is particularly sporty. While the design is very similar bự that on the standard A-Class, the matte gray paintwork matches well with the Cirrus white paint on our test car. Other distinctive design elements include glossy black wing mirrors and Edition 1 decals running along the entire wheelbase.

Aside from these upgrades, there’s little bự differentiate the Edition 1 from the standard A-Class. In fact, the rest of the car remains unchanged. The low-profile sporty stance is still there, the LED headlights and taillights stand out. Mercedes thinks everyone loves the A-Class’ diamond grille, however, it doesn’t offer this special image treatment as standard, which is really disappointing given the encrusted grille. Diamonds located next bự the LED headlights give the front a very aggressive stance. The BMW 1 -Series – despite its wide, superficial body – looks rather dull and doesn’t leave as good of an impression as the A-Class.

inland

Following the tradition with all recent Mercedes models, the interior of the A-Class is really well done. The dashboard is dominated by high-quality soft surfaces and the leather-like material is accented with contrasting stitching. The current A-Class diesel engine range isn’t really feature-rich, which is likely why Mercedes chose bự offer the Version 1 with diesel only.

In terms of features, the interior of this new model has been greatly improved and the cabin now feels like a legitimate luxury place bự stay. First, Mercedes has equipped a panoramic glass sunroof, reversing camera and electric adjustment for the front passenger seat; all are missing from the regular A180 CDI. The dashboard also has a slight modification with the addition of a gearshift indicator light.

Curiously, the Edition 1 omits the climate control and parking sensors at both front and rear; features, Mercedes should have put in first place. Even the fixed tablet-like screen for the COMAND infotainment system is smaller than the petrol A-Class.

On the other hand, the interior remains unchanged which means it’s only roomy enough for four people bự sit. While the seats themselves are comfortable, there isn’t much space bự move around. Ambient visibility is also slightly affected by the slender A-pillars and tall window lines. Overall, the cabin is spacious enough for urban commuting or a short weekend getaway. Take longer and things get a bit tiresome, especially if you have a large number of people on board; Having said that, the A-Class still fare better than the BMW 1-Series when it comes bự sheer luxury and the feel-good factor. While both of these premium hatchbacks have received a lot of criticism for placing style over materials, the 1-Series feels more spacious inside largely thanks bự larger rear headroom and windows. slightly larger, at the same time it also has a larger trunk. In the end, the A-Class fought back with its generous equipment list, presenting the better value of the two.

Engine

Mercedes-Benz India has made no changes bự the A-Class Edition 1’s engine or powertrain. The car continues bự be powered by a 2143cc, four-cylinder diesel engine. This is the same power plant that Mercedes installs for its B-Class, C-Class, E-Class and ML-Class. Now this may sound unfair bự owners of other Mercedes models, but the difference here lies in the hardware and overall tuning. Underneath the hood of the A-Class, this 2.2-litre diesel is offered in its least-tuned state – 107hp and 250Nm of torque, bự put it in gear.

While some can be affected by the displacement-to-horsepower ratio, the turbocharged four-cylinder is impressively quiet and smooth. Like all diesels, it’s tuned bự deliver powerful mid-range performance, which means there’s always more than enough for quick overtaking maneuvers.

Mập make the most of the engine, the A-Class is equipped with Mercedes’ 7G-DCT dual-clutch transmission. It’s a 7-speed automatic unit that offers smooth and jerk-free gear changes. In terms of gearshift speed, the gearbox is not bad but a bit slow when shifting gears. Those looking for performance comparable bự BMW’s excellent 8-speed ZF transmission will have bự look elsewhere.

While the A-Class can’t match the BMW 118d and its 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine produces 143bhp and 320Nm, one can be sure it’s powerful enough for most driving conditions.

Ride and Handle

While its suspension cài đặt has been altered bự provide a comfortable ride across India’s various road conditions, the A-Class’ standard cruise is entirely on the stiffer side. . The suspension doesn’t even take moderately bad roads. After taking this into consideration, Mercedes India decided bự tune the suspension further with the A-Class Edition 1, and the results are truly commendable.

Driving comfort on the A-Class Edition 1 is much better, and the suspension now takes big bumps without creating any form of creepy noise. A welcome tăng cấp from Mercedes-Benz India is the additional ground clearance that really comes in handy when going over large speed bumps.

Despite the slightly softened and elevated suspension cài đặt, the A-Class is still among the best handling Mercedes models currently on sale in India. The steering balances very well with speed and despite its front-wheel drive structure; it’s as good, if not better, bự drive like the 1-Series. The body rolls a bit more than before due bự the higher ground clearance, but it’s still negligible and doesn’t impede the A-Class’ dynamic capabilities.

On the other hand, rear-wheel drive 1- Series is a better choice for those who always prefer bự drive by themselves. In fact, on a suitable winding road rife with bends and bumps, The1 -Series just feels a little more rewarding bự drive with its more responsive steering and good body control. than. The downside bự this is the uncomfortable ride quality on rough ground when compared bự the A-Class.

Identify

Even with its substantial tăng cấp list, the A-Class Edition 1 isn’t as powerful or spacious as its traditional rival, the BMW 1-Series. But it may also be a favorite among two among first-time premium car buyers. Great bự look at, fun bự drive, and packed with worthy upgrades, this new limited-edition model has pretty much resolved many of the shortcomings of the standard A-Class.

At Rs 27.90 lakh (factory), the A-Class Edition 1 costs just Rs 80,000 more than the model it’s based on – the A180 CDI. Stylish design elements, distinctive interior and sporty on-road style, the A-Class Edition 1 looks well-positioned bự compete with its closest rivals including the new A3 – an entry-level luxury sedan. Audi’s scene will debut early next month.
