Mercedes has announced an all-new line up of ECO and 4MATIC models for the Mercedes A Class and Mercedes B Class in the UK market.

Mercedes A class
The new models, branded as the A 180 CDI ECO SE and B 180 CDI ECO SE are powered by the same 1.5 litre turbo-diesel engine from Renault (the K9K engine) but offer better economy and reduced CO2 emissions due to weight-saving measures, improved aerodynamics and powertrain refinements.

CO2 emissions on the A 180 CDI ECO SE have reduced by 6% to 92 g/km, with combined fuel consumption having increased to 78.5 mpg (27.8 km/l). Similarly, emissions on the B 180 CDI ECO SE have also reduced by 9% to 98 g/km CO2, with the combined mpg increasing by 8% per cent to 74.3 mpg (26.3 km/l). Both these vehicles are free from road tax.

Mercedes B class

In addition to the new ECO SE models, the A and B will also come in AWD variants from January 2014. The A 250 4MATIC is available in both AMG Sport and Engineered by AMG trim, with the B 220 4MATIC exclusively available in Sport trim.

The prices for these new variants are mentioned below:

  1. A 180 CDI ECO SE from £21,965 (Rs.22.2 lakhs)
