German automaker Mercedes-Benz quickly brought a new generation of A-class to the Russian market. However, with deliveries of all-wheel drive versions of the hatchback, the Germans stayed for almost half a year.
Russian dealers accept orders for a single version with a drive on both axles of the wheels A220 4MATIC. The car is equipped with an 2-liter turbo engine with the power of 190 hp, working in tandem with the 7-stepped robotic transmission. The first "hundred" car is gaining for 6,9 seconds, the maximum speed is 235 km / h.
Naturally, the all-wheel drive version of the car will cost more to car owners: the A220 4MATIC is only available in the two most expensive models. The Progressive version has a leather interior with an infotainment system, a virtual dashboard and 17-inch wheels. The minimum cost of such a car is 2 470 000 rubles. The second Sport package differs from the first one only in the exterior design and seats with integrated head restraints. Its cost starts from 2 580 0000 rubles.
The main competitors will be much cheaper. BMW's all-wheel drive "penny" in a complete set with a 190-strong turbo diesel engine will cost 2 300 000 rubles, and for the Audi A3 with a gasoline engine of the same power, they ask 2 012 000 rubles.
Will the Mercedes-Benz A220 4MATIC be able to compete with its more affordable competitors - time will tell. The first all-wheel drive Mercedes-Benz A-Class will be available from Russian dealers in September.
