Review

The Geneva motor show in March will see the debut of the improved Mercedes-Benz A-class, with redesigned body details, enhanced interior and technical improvements.

The new car (pictured below) will be available with a choice of two modified direct-injection diesel engines, utilising common rail technology to develop 25% more power output than previously, without increasing fuel consumption.

The A-class will also be available with the option of windowbags for greater occupant protection. Another unique feature is the newly developed optional air conditioning system with an additional air humidity sensor. For the first time the fourth-generation Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) operates in conjunction with an even more efficient Brake Assist system.

The car's front end has been redesigned with contoured bumper and extended air intake giving the body a wider look. The radiator grille is new as are replacable rub strips in the front and rear bumper and the newly developed headlights.

The interior dash has been redesigned and softer, higher quality materials used. The three-spoke steering wheel has also been redesigned.
