Mercedes-Benz all-new A200 hatch gains a new 1.3-litre turbo petrol engine

Talking further on the all-new Mercedes Benz A-Class hatch – just the A200 at this stage.

It’s enormously clever and gives the new Mercedes A-Class an edge in its segment. Visually, some small styling updates on a hatch that’s longer and wider on a 30mm longer wheelbase – boot space is up, now with a wider opening but rear legroom is still on the tight side.
