New Mercedes-Benz A Class 180 CDI

The exterior lines of the new Mercedes A-Class, as the interior, mark a breakthrough with all previous models, which were taller and narrower. This has a much more sporty design, with the front in "V", a low center of gravity, and a road behavior that is closer to a two-door compact car than a five-door car. But his strongest argument comes from the engine with 1.5 liter, made by Renault, which is very economical, with moderate consumption in all types of use. It is, therefore, a German "star" with a French heart.
