Beefier engines for Mercedes-Benz A-Class

New diesel powerplants give extra oomph to premium hatch and meet the latest emissions standards

Would you like to stay up to date with the latest from The Executivecondominium?

It’s only been on sale a few months, but Mercedes-Benz has already added a pair of new diesel engines to its A-Class hatchback range.

The first, a 2.0-litre added to the A 200 d, puts out 150hp and 320Nm and is capable of returning 67.3mpg on the combined cycle while emitting 110g/km of CO2. Mercedes claims it can hit 60mph in 7.9 seconds before reaching an electronically limited top speed of 137mph.

The second, this time powering the A 220 d, is another 2.0-litre that produces 190hp and 400Nm of torque. As a result of the increased power output, Mercedes claims that the A 220d can reach 60mph in just 6.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 146mph. It can still return 65.7mpg combined, however, while emitting 114g/km of CO2.

Both engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

The lower-powered A 200 d is available in Sport and AMG Line trims, while the more powerful A 220 d is available in AMG Line specification only.

Sport trim cars benefit from a seven-inch cockpit display and seven-inch infotainment screen, along with a reversing camera, 17-inch alloy wheels and a range of driver assistance systems.

Higher-spec AMG Line A-Class models get larger 18-inch alloy wheels as standard, along with a full AMG exterior styling kit and diamond radiator grille.

On-road prices start from £28,805 for the A 200 d Sport, rising to £30,005 for the AMG Line specification. The A 220 d AMG Line is priced at £31,575 on-road. Naturally, Mercedes-Benz offers an extensive array of optional extras to escalate those prices significantly…

Order books are open now, and first deliveries are expected next spring.
