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

Engines will range from 109 hp to 211 hp with even the possibility of a four-wheel drive model.
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.
