Conformity? What conformity? The style of a new generation pulses through the A-Class, boasting as many class-leading bragging rights as it does original design features. The new A-Class Facelift 2016 is  even more of a stunner, a revolution we’re continuing at Mercedes-Benz as we infuse our curiously  compact hatchback with ever-sportier dynamism.

Nomenclature
  • A-Class

    Rebel with a cause. This conspicuous Mercedes-Benz has a dynamic arrow-shaped front end, AMG-inspired diamond grille and lowered suspension combined with best-in-segment aerodynamics as a statement of powerful intent.

1993 A-Class vehicles were initially conceptualised as part of a project which was called 'Vision A 93'. The vehicle was envisioned with very small dimensions.
1994 The concept evolved in leading to the concept referred to as 'Studie A'.
1997 The concept of 'Studie A' came to life with the launch of A-Class (W168) vehicles, which was presented a new chapter in the compact segment. Its standout feature was the integration of innovative engineering and design, based on the 'sandwich principle' – the engine, transmission, petrol tank and axles were all packed below the passenger compartment.
2004 The A-Class received a facelift, evolving to a family-favourite with a three-door hatchback option.
2012 The third generation of A-Class vehicles made a grand entrance as a larger variation of the A-Class. Today this dynamic, fresh, sporty vehicle class is enthusiastically acclaimed in South Africa and abroad.
