Prices starts from RM 227,888 and RM 263,888 respectively and are available in CBU form only.

  • Exterior

    Mercedes-Benz A-Class Exterior

    The ‘Baby Merc’ is wearing a more grown-up front end that no doubt draws its inspiration from the menacing Mercedes-Benz CLS. Now sporting a shark-like pointy front nose with a more prominent front grille, punctuated by the massive Three-Pointed-Star emblem.


    The narrow swept-back headlamp design and the aggressively styled air-intakes serve to add to the visual width of the car. The ‘Sensual purity’ design philosophy is further demonstrated by the smooth, streamlined bonnet design and a neat, up-sweeping character line along the sides.

    The top of the range AMG Line package adds on a more aggressive bumper designs, featuring aerodynamics air-intake fins up front and diffuser-like trim at the rear, radiator grille with chrome diamond pins, deeper side skirts, larger cross-drilled front brake discs and a set of 18-inch AMG-badged 5-spoke alloys. The W177 Mercedes-Benz A Class is 127 mm longer, 16 mm wider and 7 mm taller than its predecessor. Wheelbase has grown by 30 mm too and weighs in at 1,455 kg.

    Mercedes-Benz A-Class Interior

    The interior is perhaps where the Mercedes-Benz A-Class stands out amongst its competitors. Inspired by the higher end cars in Mercedes-Benz’s own line up like the W222 S-Class, the interior design of the entry level ‘baby merc’ is unlike any other cars in its class.


    Smooth transitions between instrument panel, centre console and door trims create a wraparound effect which Mercedes-Benz claims to ‘hug’ its occupant. An airliner-style ‘glass-cockpit’ layout features not one, but two floating 10.25-inch high-resolution flatscreen displays spanning across half the dashboard, operated using the steering wheel, console mounted touchpad or simply by touchscreen.

    The tiered dashboard design creates a luxury lounge-like laid-back ambiance while the jet-turbine-inspired round air vents are another nod to the aviation world. Gloss-black inlays around the central air vents as well as on the centre console elevates the premiumness of the interior but could prove to be a nightmare as they attract fingerprints.

    A 200 Progressive line comes with black open pore linden wood trim and Artico faux leather upholstery, while the A 250 AMG Line gets upgraded sports seats with integrated headrests, Nappa leather-wrapped flat-bottomed steering wheel, brushed aluminium decor and Artico and Dinamica microfibre seat trim.

Mercedes’s voice command system now features an overhauled LINGUATRONIC language control system which understands your command more intuitively by machine-learning your accents or a more indirect speech. 

    It controls almost everything from checking the temperature to setting up your navigation system, activated by a simple phrase of ‘Hey Mercedes’. In terms of safety, both variants get seven airbags, Active Brake Assist (autonomous emergency braking), tyre pressure monitoring system and Active Parking Assist with a reverse camera.

  • Conclusion

    Mercedes-Benz A-Class Conclusion

    The Mercedes-Benz A-Class on the class of its own when it comes to interior design. With design elements inspired by the higher end luxury Mercedes-Benz, the entry level ‘Baby Merc’ certainly impresses not only in terms of design, but also quality. While it looks and feels expensive, the ride is not as plush as expected and it is not as dynamically inclined as, say, a Ford Focus. But if you can make do with the cramped rear seats and a run-of-the-mill ride and handling, few other premium hatchbacks on the market can offer what the Mercedes-Benz A-Class has got to offer. 

Mercedes-Benz A-Class 2022 has total 5 color options in Malaysia: Polar White, Jupiter Red, Iridium Silver, Mountain Grey, Cosmos Black.
