Mercedes-Benz has recently announced its plans to offer a BlueEfficiency version of the new A-Class generation.
According to the German based automaker, the upcoming Mercedes-Benz A-Class BlueEfficiency will become available for its future customers from next month (February) and the first deliveries of the model will begin in March. The new version of the German hatchback can be easily distinguished by regular variants thanks to its round LED daytime running lights and by the revised front grille. The model is also getting improved underbody aerodynamics and a reduced ride height, amongst others.
The most significant change of the upcoming Mercedes-Benz A-Class BlueEfficiency will be found under its hood, where the vehicle will get a choice of two engines, starting with a 1.6 liter petrol producing a total output of 122 HP (90 kW), which is allowing the model to burn an average of 5.2 liters of fuel every 100 km (45.1 mpg US / 54.3 mpg UK) and to emit 120 g/km of CO2. This version will be named the A 180 BlueEfficiency and it will be followed by the A 180 CDI BlueEfficiency, which will get the 1.5 liter diesel engine under its hood, generating 109 HP and burning an average of 3.6 liters of fuel every 100 km (65.3 mpg US / 78.4 mpg UK) and emitting 92 g/km of CO2. More details on the Mercedes-Benz A-Class BlueEfficiency will be announced close to its launch.
