Mercedes-Benz has announced that the new Mercedes A-Class and B-Class models are now available for purchase in the UK.
The new A-Class starts at £31,880 on the road and the B-Class starts at £35,100 on the road, and both models are available to order now.
The new A-Class comes with different engine variants, including both petrol and diesel options. If you opt for mild hybrid, you’ll find an additional 48-volt electrical system to support agility when taking off and an extra 10 kW of power. The plug-in hybrid combines performance and practicality and can be specified as a A 250 e hatchback or saloon.
For the new B-Class, the engine choice is either B200 d or B200. All powertrain technology is the same for both models.
The A-Class and B-Class are now available with a 7- or 8-speed DCT gearbox, depending on engine choice. An innovative belt-driven starter generator or his RSG also improves comfort and smoothness while driving. The RSG ensures a quieter start than conventional starters and allows the combustion engine to be turned off during stable cruising to allow ‘sailing’. The RSG also recovers during overruns and powers the 12 and 48 volt batteries.
