New Mercedes-Benz A200 Prices and Specifications

 
Alex Rae | Jul, 13 2018 | 0 Comments

Mercedes-Benz has confirmed its all-new A-Class will launch in Australia next month with the first model available the mid-grade A200.

It will bring a raft of new technology to the new-look hatch that has been redesigned to be big bigger inside and provide enhanced ride and handling.

Some of the technology has trickled down from the top-end S- and E-Class but the A-Class will be the first model to debut the German maker’s trick new MBUX operating system.

MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) integrates with twin-10.25-inch display screens mounted horizontally across the dash to replace the conventional infotainment and driver instrument display cluster. It's activated by saying, “Hey Mercedes,” and can perform tasks like guiding to destinations, showing points of interest, playing tailored music selections and dictating mobile phone notifications on the fly.

Using natural speech recognition, MBUX can further understand questions such if you’ll need an umbrella or if you are running late to a meeting.

Acting as a personal assistant, MBUX will also predict the user’s next move – so if you telephone your partner each evening on the way home or call an Indian takeaway on Thursdays, MBUX will get things ready before you can say ‘Hey’. And it will even have congestion warnings ready for that route to India Gate.

The driver’s instrument cluster display is replaced with one of the 10.25-inch screens and can be tailored from Classic and Sport looks to a Discreet mode that only shows vital information. Customisable displays on the cockpit include an analogue clock, trip computer, speed information tachometer, radio stations or media playlist, navigation and fuel economy.

Added to MBUX is another layer of customisation called theme worlds that includes private, business, relaxation and sport environments which multiple users setup. Each world has set settings for climate control, seat position, navigation, radio station preference and driving mode.

Standard equipment on the A200 includes 18-inch alloys, MBUX on twin 10.25-inch displays, LED headlights, high beam assist, keyless entry and start, AEB, parking assist, active lane keeping assist, blind spot monitoring, traffic sign assist and reversing camera.

The A200 is powered by a new four-cylinder petrol engine producing 120kW and 250Nm of torque mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission claiming a combined fuel consumption of 5.7l/100km.

Available from August 10, the A200 is priced from $47,200 plus on-road costs and will be followed by the A180 and A250 later this year.
