STEVENAGE, London, October 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Mercedes-Benz Hertfordshire Retailers in Bishops Stortford, Hertford and Stevenage have unveiled the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class and are offering local motorists the chance to be among the first in the country to experience the exciting new model that is destined to take the compact car segment by storm.
Left-hand drive demonstrator versions are available to test drive now at the retailers ahead of the first right-hand drive models arriving in December. Test drive bookings are now being taken and all those who take advantage of the opportunity are certain to be impressed by the new A-Class's sporty styling, athletic performance and superb specifications.
With its youthful, aggressive look that introduces a new generation of Mercedes-Benz, the new A-Class is strikingly different to its popular predecessor. Thanks to its amazing style, enhanced efficiency and extensive choice of model lines, the new A-Class will appeal to an even greater cross section of drivers, including younger motorists who may not have considered a Mercedes before. Indeed the A-Class is the first Mercedes-Benz to achieve CO2 emissions of less than 100g/km - the A 180 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY returning 98g/km and an impressive 74.3mpg (combined). The ECO start/stop function, which cuts the engine to save fuel when the car's speed drops below 5mph and then re-starts it again automatically, is a standard feature across the range.
The new Mercedes A Class price starts at £18,945 on-the-road, the entry-level A 180 BlueEFFICIENCY petrol boasts MP3 and Bluetooth compatibility but would-be owners can choose to upgrade their A-Class via a quartet of trim packages - the SE, Sport and the AMG-inspired, AMG Sport and the flagship 'Engineered by AMG'. New levels of connectivity are available across the range and, for the first time, Mercedes-Benz has integrated the Apple iPhone comprehensively.
The arrival of the new A-Class at Mercedes-Benz of Bishops Stortford, Mercedes-Benz of Hertford and Mercedes-Benz of Stevenage comes hot on the heels of the model being introduced via a social network-related campaign that combined television adverts and Twitter. Special adverts ran through weekend programming of 'The X-Factor' over 6th-7th October and encouraged viewers to decide how the plot would unfold via voting on Twitter.
In addition to offering customers test drives of the new A-Class, Mercedes-Benz Hertfordshire Retailers are able to provide a fantastic finance opportunity for those who pre-order. Early purchasers can enjoy the new A-Class for as little as £249 per month and this attractive offer has already seen many customers sign up for the many attributes of the exciting new Mercedes.
For further information on the new A-Class and to book a test drive, customers are invited to contact the sales team of their nearest Mercedes-Benz Hertfordshire Retailer who will be delighted to help.
