The V177 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan is, by all intents and purposes, a gateway model into the flashy realm of the three-pointed star. It’s available in A 200 Progressive Line and A 250 AMG Line guises, both of which are locally assembled in Pekan, Pahang.
Prices start from RM220,459 for the A 200 Sedan, which is powered by a Renault-sourced M282 1.33 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 163 PS and 250 Nm of torque. It drives the front wheels through a Getrag seven-speed wet dual-clutch transmission.
Meanwhile, the A 250 – priced at RM243,858 – is motivated by an in-house 2.0 litre M260 turbo four-pot churning out 224 PS at 5,500 rpm and 350 Nm between 1,800 and 4,000 rpm. The gearbox is also a Mercedes unit, again a seven-speed wet dual-clutch transmission.
Prices have gone up slightly from its initial launch, but that also includes a slight kit bump. The A 200 now gets the 64-colour ambient lighting and power-adjustable front passenger seat, whereas the A 250 gets blind spot monitoring. Extras include wireless charging and hands-free boot access for both, as well as active lane keep assist and automatic high beam.
