Prices are in for the new 2018 Mercedes-Benz A-Class
These only apply to Germany, mind you
Mercedes-Benz has published pricing information related to the new A-Class, so here's how much it costs to buy Stuttgart's tech-savvy hatchback in Germany.
Four versions split the Mercedes A-Class range in Germany: A200 (manual or automatic), A250 and A180d, with the last two being offered solely in conjunction with the seven-speed 7G-DCT automatic transmission. The manual gearbox is a six-speed unit.
The entry-level A-Class A200 (163 hp, 250 Nm, 1,332 cc) fitted with the manual transmission starts at €30,232, but should you prefer the seven-speed automatic instead, the price tag goes up to €32,326.
The diesel-powered A180d (116 hp, 260 Nm, 1,461 cc) starts at €31,398, while the range topping (so far) A250 (224 hp, 350 Nm, 1,991 cc) requires a payment of at least €36,462.
Mercedes says an Edition 1 model will be available for one year after the A-Class hits the market, on all engine versions. For an extra €7,021, customers get standard features like LED headlights, sport seats and ambience lighting.
Those looking to get the highest level of safety out of their new A-Class can upgrade via the Driving Assistance pack (€1,797, available from the fourth quarter of 2018) which includes the likes of active steering assist and lane change assist and brake and emergency stop assist.
The head-up display is also optional (€1,178) and lets the driver access various information directly on the windscreen.
It goes without saying that the star of the feature bunch is Mercedes' new MBUX infotainment system, which, as Stuttgart puts it, "ushers in a new era in Mercedes me connectivity."
Customers can have the new infotainment system in one of its two iterations. The standard offering relies on two seven-inch screens - one dedicated to the instrument cluster, the other focusing on media, car and navigation info - plus a multi-function steering wheel, type-C USB port and Bluetooth.
For €1,357, Mercedes will provide the Basic Navigation pack with voice control, navi, a touchpad and pre-installed Live Traffic Information.
The Premium Navigation package (€3,017) takes things to a new level courtesy of two 10.25-inch screens - again, one serving the instrument cluster and the other focusing on infotainment-related functions.
Expect the first A-Class models to reach dealerships in May.
