Mercedes A-Class range expanded with A 200 d and A 220 d diesels

A 200 d Sport and more powerful A 220 d AMG Line available to order now with prices starting from £28,805 and £31,575 respectively

Mercedes has expanded the A-Class lineup with the addition of a pair of diesel engines. The A 200 d Sport and the A 220 d AMG Line are available to order now, with first deliveries due in the Spring.

Both models are powered by the same 2.0-litre unit in different power outputs. They sit above the existing A 180 d; though while the 1.5-litre diesel was co-developed with the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, the larger engine is Mercedes specific and first appeared under the bonnet of the Mercedes E 220 d.

Best hatchbacks 2018/2019

The A 200 d offers up 148bhp and 320nm, enough for an 8.1-second 0-62mph time and a top speed of 137mph. The more powerful unit in the A 220 d makes 187bhp and 400nm, accelerates from 0-62mph 1.1 seconds quicker and has a 146mph top speed. Both are front-wheel drive only and matched to an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

Fuel consumption figures for the A 200 d and A 220d stand at 67.3mpg and 65.7mpg respectively - these compare to figures of 70.6mpg and 65.7mpg for the most closely-matched BMWs; the 118d and 120d.

The A 200 d is available in both Sport and AMG Line trims. The A 200 d costs £28,805, and its standard equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, a mix of fabric and artificial leather upholstery, and a pair of 7-inch infotainment screens with a DAB radio and a reversing camera.

AMG Line models cost £1,200 more, adding 18-inch wheels, an AMG body kit and front grille. Inside, the AMG Line features a sports steering wheel and seats finished in Alcantara-effect and leather-effect trims.

The A 220 d is only available in AMG Line trim, and is priced from £31,575. Both trim levels are available with a range of option packages, including the £1,395 Executive line (larger 10.25-inch media screen, active park assist, heated front seats and folding/dimming mirrors), the £2,395 Premium Line (10.25-inch instrument cluster, ambient lighting, keyless entry and an uprated sound system), and the £3,595 Premium Plus pack (Premium line plus electric front seats, a panoramic roof and multibeam LED lights).

An augmented navigation system, which superimposes directions onto images displayed from a forward-facing camera, is a £495 option when combined with any of those three packages.
