Top marks – the Mercedes-Benz A-Class brings luxe to your everyday life
Let’s be honest – we spend a lot of time with our cars, so it makes sense that we become more than a little bit attached to them. Up until now, our relationship with our vehicles has always been a bit one-sided – sure, they get us where we need to go, but it’s hard for a car to love you back. Well, something has just happened to change the game – Mercedes-Benz has just dropped the latest incarnation of its iconic A-Class, and you’d better believe this is a car that will have you feeling like you’re living your best life.
Undoubtedly one of the most impressive features of the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class is the user experience – the new technology will pretty much make you fall in love with your car. The A-Class kicks the personal touches up a notch with a fully adaptable digital interface that learns from your habits and preferences – things like your key destinations, favourite songs and frequently-called pals will all be available at the drop of a hat. As if that wasn’t cool enough, the new ‘Hey Mercedes’ feature gives you hands-free voice control over everything you can do with your touchscreen – so you can live out your Knight Rider fantasy.
As well as the ultra-cool UX features, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class also boasts a bunch of other practical and convenient surprises. Semi-autonomous driving capability, wireless charging and auto emergency braking are just a few of the fancy things you can expect, as well as the stunning ambient lighting that doubles as a safety feature (for real, we’re talking lights that will alert you to approaching pedestrians or cyclists). With all this in mind, the price point for an A-Class starts at around $46,000 – not bad for a brand-new luxury vehicle loaded with features designed to make your life a breeze.
