2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class - Full details
It took quite a long period of time for Mercedes to bring the new 2019 A-Class here in the Philippines. Yes, we were a bit annoyed and disappointed with all the waiting but once the car arrived at the dealerships, it was so good that all our annoyance and disappoint faded away in a second; the new 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class is that good and here are all its details.
The new A-Class carries a bolder design than its predecessor. Mercedes calls this design language the ‘Sensual Purity’ and it lives up to its name, believe us! Most of the curves are replaced by sharp lines. Some of the key exterior features that are bound to attract your attention are-
- Sporty diamond radiator grille
- Angry-looking LED headlamps with DRLs
- Sporty alloy wheels
- Two-part rear LED taillamps
All these features make the new A-Class a confident car that is ready to jump off the start line.
It is a Mercedes and you really can’t expect anything less than perfection from it. And that’s exactly what the 2019 A-Class offers with its interior. The colour combinations of the interior theme are carefully selected. One of our favourite interior features is the turbine-like AC vents that add the extra touch of sportiness.
