The safety concept from Mercedes-Benz in the A-Class
When it comes to safety, our engineers never stop with their research. Thus, in addition to the one-box concept with its intelligent crumple zone design, the A-Class incorporates many important technologies that make driving even safer and help to prevent accidents. Airbags, crash-responsive head restraints, seat belts and crash-responsive emergency lighting are all part of the passive safety concept. Intelligent systems such as the Electronic Stability Program (ESP®), the anti-lock braking system (ABS), Brake Assist (BAS) and adaptive brake light help you to better master critical driving situations.
Environmentally compatible concepts
BlueEFFICIENCY from Mercedes-Benz stands for pioneering efficiency technologies as well as innovative packages of measures based on optimising fuel consumption and emission levels.
The BlueEFFICIENCY models of the A-Class
There are three BlueEFFICIENCY models available for the A-Class which are equipped with environmentally friendly technologies or extensive special measures: the A 160 BlueEFFICIENCY, A 180 BlueEFFICIENCY and A 160 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY.
Packages of measures in the A-Class
All the E-Class BlueEFFICIENCY models are equipped with a raft of different features according to the type of fuel used and engine fitted. A few examples:
Still to come this year is the market launch in small-series production of the first purely battery-powered electric vehicle from Mercedes-Benz: the A-Class E-CELL does not need any fuel in the conventional sense. Modern rechargeable lithium-ion batteries store the energy required and allow for a range of more than 200 kilometres. As the batteries are located in the sandwich floor of the vehicle, even this version of the A-Class remains a full-fledged 5-seater with unrestricted interior space and effective load space.
