Having launched the E-Class facelift just a couple of weeks ago, Mercedes-Benz India is now set to introduce another all-new model. Today is the launch of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class Limousine, which was first showcased on Indian soil all the way back in February 2020, at the Auto Expo. Delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic meant that Mercedes-Benz India had to do without an entry-level model in its portfolio for practically all of 2020, but now, after a long wait, the A-Class Limousine finally goes on sale today.
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class Limousine is a replacement for the first-gen Mercedes-Benz CLA, which was phased out from the Indian market towards the end of 2019. While it is similar in the way that it is based on the A-Class hatchback, the A-Class Limousine – known as the A-Class sedan in international markets – is a more practical, traditional sedan style offering as compared to the CLA, which was designed to be a four-door coupe. The CLA sure did look gorgeous, but wasn’t practical as the sloping roofline meant headroom for rear seat passengers was at a premium. However, that issue has been addressed with the A-Class Limousine, which promises a more spacious backseat.
The A-Class Limousine will be available with both petrol and diesel engine options, but only in a single, fully-loaded variant with both engines. Additionally, Mercedes-Benz India will also launch the hotter AMG A35 4MATIC sedan, which becomes the second AMG model to be locally assembled after the GLC 43 Coupe.
Stay tuned as we bring you all the updates LIVE from the launch!
