Mercedes-Benz Malaysia announced that it has made several updates to its new generation compact models in an effort to continue providing the best product offerings in the market. These changes involve the A-Class sedan, GLA and GLB SUVs.
For the A-Class sedan, the base model A 200 now gets a 64-colour ambient lighting set-up. This allows you to highlight the interior according to your mood or colour preference. The ambient lighting encompasses the air vents, dashboard and doors.
The A-Class’ safety features have also been improved, with the Active Lane Keeping Assist and Adaptive High-beam Assist. Further, convenience systems like KEYLESS-GO Comfort Package and Wireless Charging have also been added for added convenience and practicality.
The A-Class sedan features a sporty take on the classy 3-box design with practicality in mind. Mercedes-Benz has taken a new approach with this compact model by giving it a more generous sense of interior space as well as a larger boot for functionality.
There are 2 variants available i.e. A200 Progressive Line, and A250 AMG Line. The A200 has a 1.3L turbo engine which puts out 163 hp @ 5,500 and 250 Nm @ 1,620 – 4,000 rpm, enabling the car to do a 0 – 100 km/h in 8.1 seconds. Meanwhile, the A250 is powered by a 2.0L turbo engine with 224 hp @ 5,500 rpm and 350 Nm @ 1,800 – 4,000 rpm, giving it a 0 – 100 km/h sprint time of 6.3 seconds. Their top speeds are limited to 230 km/h and 250 km/h respectively.
The official retail prices are RM220,458.79 and RM243,857.88 respectively. Prices are on-the-road without insurance and effective until the end of the tax-free incentive period.
Likewise, the GLA range also has 2 variants available i.e. GLA200 Progressive Line (RM241,379.06) and GLA250 AMG Line (RM271,164.84). The upgrades include safety and convenience systems such as Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive High-beam Assist and Wireless Charging.
The Mercedes-Benz GLA features a sharpened and compact SUV character with an expressive design. Like the A-Class sedan, the base model GLA200 also features the ambient lighting system. Also similar to the sedan are the engine sizes and output for the corresponding variants. The difference is in the sprint times and top speeds i.e. 8.7 seconds, 210 km/h; and 6.9 seconds, 240 km/h respectively, mainly due to the added weight of the body style.
Meanwhile, the versatile 7-seater GLB SUV is also equipped with Blind Spot Assist as standard. It also includes the Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive High-beam Assist, and Wireless Charging as standard safety and convenient features. Ambient lighting is also now standard.
The GLB is also available as the GLB200 Progressive Line and GLB250 AMG Line. Engine set-up is similar to the above-mentioned compact models i.e. 1.3L and 2.0L respectively. The 0 – 100 km/h sprint times are 9.1 seconds and 6.9 seconds, while the top speeds are 207 km/h and 236 km/h respectively. The GLB has an unmistakable classic off-road boxy design to maximise interior space for a 3rd row of seats and boot space of up to 1,805 litres.
