Mercedes-Benz Australia has detailed the pricing and specifications of its updated A-Class hatch and sedan range ahead of a local arrival later this month.
The 2023 Mercedes-Benz A-Class range now starts with the A200 hatch at $61,900 before on-roads, with the entry-level A180 axed. The entry price has risen $10,500.
Pricing for the A-Class range now goes up to $119,900 before on-roads for the A45 S 4Matic+ hatch, which is up by $13,000.
In addition to swapping the entry-level A180 for the A200 with the update, Mercedes-Benz Australia has axed the A250e plug-in hybrid (PHEV) hatch from the line-up. The A250e sedan was axed in 2022.
Almost every A-Class model now features a 48V mild-hybrid system, apart from the flagship A45 S 4Matic+. This includes a belt-driven start-generator capable of providing an additional 10kW at start-off.
As previously detailed, the A-Class has received subtle exterior and interior design revisions, as well as the latest generation of the brand’s MBUX connected infotainment system.
A panoramic sunroof, keyless entry and start, surround-view camera, and power-adjustable heated front seats with memory are now standard across the A-Class range.
The AMG Line package is standard on the core A-Class range with a new rear diffuser and standard LED tail lights.
On the inside there are dual 10.25-inch displays, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, an additional USB-C port, and a revised steering wheel that’s wrapped in Nappa leather.
The AMG models receive a new round badge with the AMG emblem instead of the Mercedes star with a laurel wreath. There are new wheel designs, rear spoiler lip, and revised tail lights.
