Mercedes has introduced two new versions of its A-Class. The A 250 Sedan and A 250 4MATIC (all-wheel drive) Sedan fit into the company’s sedan line-up between the A 180 Sedan and the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Sedan.

As is often the way with the sedans they provide extra luggage capacity, an extra 420 litres back there, an increase of 50 litres over the corresponding hatchbacks.

Both are powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine (165kW/350Nm) mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission.

Standard equipment for the A 250 Sedan MBUX multimedia system with navigation and extensive personalisation and voice control functions; DAB digital radio with nine-speakers; touch controllers; smartphone integration with wireless charging.

Safety equipment includes Active Brake Assist, Active Lane Keep Assist, Traffic Sign Assist and Adaptive High-beam Assist.

The Mercedes-Benz A 250 4MATIC Sedan also has Comfort Sports seats in DINAMICA microfibre, brushed stainless steel sports pedals with rubber studs, ambient lighting featuring 64 colours, red contrast stitching, a Nappa leather steering wheel with a flattened lower section and a panoramic glass sunroof.
