After changing the silhouette image on compact sports hatchback, Mercedes A-Class is a direct competitor to the BMW 1 Series. In Stuttgart it was time to test and evaluate competitor released earlier and finish something in the car.
The new Mercedes-Benz A-Class is built on the new front-wheel drive platform, MFA (Mercedes Front-wheel-drive Architecture). The base gasoline engine, presumably, would be a 1.6-liter turbo-unit, which, depending on the modification will be to develop the 123 or158 hp In addition, A-Class will get a 2.0-liter turbo direct-injection 2.0-liter 204 hp, which will be aggregated with the new robotised gearbox with two clutches instead ofstepless variator. The most powerful would be ”charged” the 320-strong modificationof AMG. Her debut will take place in 2013.
Diesel version of the Mercedes A-Class will get a 1.8-liter engine with common rail system in two capacities - 122, and 138 hp, while the most powerful version of theheavy fuel oil will be developed around the same 204 hp, and that gasoline engine.
