What Equipment Levels Can Dealers Offer for the 2013 Mercedes-Benz A-Class?

The 2013 model of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class car is being unveiled for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show in 2012. A big part of Mercedes’ marketing for the new car focusses on the high levels of equipment which are being fitted, including technology which is usually only found on much more expensive models that this entry level Mercedes-Benz car. This article will look at some of the equipment and trim levels for the 2013 Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Three different trim levels will be made available for this car by dealers in the UK. These will be called ‘Urban’, ‘Style’, and ‘Sport’.

A wide range of safety technology is being included with the entry level Urban trim for 2013. This includes a range of advanced features such as Hill-start Assist, brake hold function, Attention Assist, Collision Prevention Assist, and even the firm’s innovative Pre-Safe system which prepares the vehicle for an impending crash when the likelihood of such an event is detected. This list can be added to with optional safety equipment such as Adaptive Highbeam Assist and Distronic Plus.

At the other end of the scale the Sport trim level has been developed with the help of the performance specialists at AMG. The most substantial addition to the vehicle when this trim level is selected is a new front axle and retuned suspension, designed with performance at the number one priority. Other additions for the Sport version of the 2013 Mercedes-Benz A-Class car include a set of 18 inch alloy wheels, a unique set of bumpers with a more aggressive style, painted red brake calipers and other accent pieces, and a diamond-look front grille mesh. Inside the vehicle buyers will find a contrasting colour scheme and metallic accents which include air vents that look very similar to those on the SLS AMG gullwing.

Other optional equipment which dealers can add to the vehicle includes an app for the infotainment system which allows for full iPhone functionality.
