A-Class CDI Sport To Be Available By March 2013

 Coming in March 2012 is another A-Class derivative that will be known as the A220 CDI Sport. Now, diesel and sport have traditionally been terms that aren’t put together when describing a car. All that has changed, however, with the evolution of prototype endurance racers that have been consistent champions at Le Mans and other venues. Powering the A220 CDI Sport is a tuned version of the Type OM651 engine. With its modified exhaust and 2.1 liter displacement, this diesel puts out 170 horsepower, with a corresponding 260 ft-lbs. of torque.

Mercedes Posts Anime Vid To Introduce A-Class

As the saying goes, “When in Rome…”, well, you know the rest. Following the weird and wonderful culture that is Japan, Mercedes-Benz has posted an anime video to introduce the A-Class. Unlike Western countries where cartoons and comics are for tots, manga and anime aficionados in Japan span generations. So, it’s actually an inspired choice for Mercedes-Benz to use an anime video to introduce their compact car. Japan is a country where Kei cars are a common sight, so the A-Class isn’t actually that small for the Japanese. If sales in other regions are any indication, the A-Class will also be a hit in Japan, and we look forward to… Continue Reading »

Indications for very strong demand were already evident since the launch of the A-Class in June, when more than 70,000 units were ordered following the market release. With the demand, the Rastatt plant has employed an additional 500 workers on a permanent basis. Already, the Rastatt complex employs 6,500 people where, apart from the A-Class, the B-Class is also being produced. Mercedes’s upcoming compact SUV is also slated to be built there.

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. Meaning of course low emissions, low fuel consumption and low operating cost. For consumers who want the class and dependability that ownership of a Mercedes implies, the Euro 6-compliant A 180 CDI boasts of a low 98 gram output of carbon dioxide per kilometer. 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 »
