Article by Christian A., on August 2, 2012

Mercedes-Benz is offering a variety of competitive monthly payment-led finance offers on certain petrol and diesel models, one of which is the all-new Mercedes-Benz A-Class that’s available for just £249 each month. The offer is included in a Mercedes-Benz Agility Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) package, and a Contract Hire plan for business users.

The most affordable model under this offer is the A 180 BlueEFFICIENCY SE petrol manual, which is offered with a £249 monthly payment across a 36-month fixed-term Agility finance offer. This is based on a deposit of £3,279.50 and 4.9% APR. With regards to Contract Hire customers, the A 180 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY SE diesel manual is offered at £249 a month for 35 months, with advance payments amounting to about six months’ worth.

The diesel version has CO2 emissions of only 98g/km. It can deliver 109hp and has a fuel economy rating of 74.3mpg on the official combined cycle, as well as giving fleet customers an offer of a 13% BIK. Meanwhile, the A 180 BlueEFFICIENCY Sport manual represents only a £10 monthly increase due to the SE line. It comes with agility payments. For those interested, you could go for a £3,614.07 customer deposit and 4.9% APR.

Then there’s also the Contract Hire plan othat offer mirrors the cost of the Agility package at £259 per month over 35 months for the new A 180 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY Sport manual, with six months’ worth of advance payments. Then there’s the AMG Sport the Dynamic Handling Package with sports suspension, as well as AMG bodystyling, It is offered as a £20 monthly increase over the A-Class Sport, and a £30 increase over the A-Class SE at £279.

The main features on the exterior of the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class include the tightly drawn surfaces and the defined edges. Because of how the interaction of the concave surfaces and convex ones result in interesting play of light on the sides, it enhances the already unique look. Standard features are included as well like the more prominent V-shape on the long front section.

It also has the separate headlamps and the radiator which has the Mercedes star in its center. Further, on each side of this start are double slats as well as extra air intakes. The “dropping line” is still there and can be seen clearly on the side profile. It is easy to see as well that the line slowly dissipates as it nears the front section. For the front end, the main element of its design are how the headlamps have been designed and combined with the light functions set-up inside them.

Just behind the cover glass of the headlamp are LEDs and light modules positioned in a manner that they allow the indicators and daytime driving lights to have that distinguishing “flare effect.” For those curious, the so-called “flare” is in fact composed of the bulb sets used for the indicators, the LED modules utilized for the daytime running lamps, and the feature line that is inside the headlamp.

It is the signature effect that results from this combination that ensures the A-Class gets a livelier look and thus paves the way for the brand to have a fresh and new face. Mercedes-Benz Head of Design Gorden Wagener says that the A-Class is by far the most progressive in its segment. Thus, while it was indeed a challenge to convert the brand’s dynamic style to that of the compact class, he adds, it was still fun to do.

The A-Class, he continues, is known for its sculptural shape and with the character lines, especially those on the sides, allow the new A-Class to have that terseness and structure. This particular style, Wagener, say further, can even be noticeable once one looks in the interior.
