Mercedes A-Class Posts New Lows

Let’s forget about the 330 horsepower, all-wheel drive AMG A-Class for now. At the other end of the spectrum is an A-Class variant that is aiming for new lows in Mercedes ownership.

In the process, it also consumes up to 26 percent less fuel than its gasoline-driven counterparts. Gratifyingly for the automaker, these numbers are the result of a comprehensive ecological life-cycle assessment of the A… Continue Reading »
