The new Mercedes Benz A-Class will be premiered at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

Design and dynamism are obvious characteristics of the new A-Class even at first glance, simply in the way it sits up to 18 centimetres closer to the road than its predecessor.

The petrol engines will be available as 1.6 and 2.0 litres units from 115 hp in the A 180 and 156 hp in the A 200 through to 211 hp in the A 250.

The turbo-charged diesel engines include A 180 CDI offering an output of 109 hp and a maximum torque of up to 250 Nm, while the A 200 CDI has a maximum output of 136 hp and torque that rises to 300 Nm. The A 220 CDI has a displacement of 2.2 litres, an output of 170 hp and torque of 350 Nm.
