Pure driving dynamics:the new sports model, the A 250 Sport, developed in collaboration with the performance specialists from AMG, sets new benchmarks. The front axle, which is specific to this car, and the sportily tuned AMG sports suspension provide out-of-the-ordinary driving pleasure. The model is based on the A 250 BlueEFFICIENCY and the AMG Sport design and equipment line.
The Sport model for the new A-Class sets the tone from top to toe. Contributing to this are the striking diamond radiator grille as well as red trim strips on the front and rear apron.
The optional red highlight rings in the headlamps, the powerful-looking AMG 5-spoke alloy wheels in high-sheen black finish, with 235/40 R 18 tyres, the red brake callipers and the "Sport" badges on the front wings also leave a lasting impression.
It's just as racy in the interior. Features typical of the A 250 Sport include the red designo seat belts, sports seats with red contrast stitching and the red highlight rings on the air outlets. Floor mats with "Sport" lettering fittingly round off the appearance of the Sport model.
There is a good reason for the A 250 Sport being given the name it has. If it says "Sport" on the outside, then if it's a Mercedes-Benz, there's "Sport" on the inside, too. The model is compelling not just for its expressive design, but for its promise of added dynamism.
Numerous components - starting with the twin-pipe sports exhaust system for a full-bodied engine sound, through the ESP® configuration which has been optimised for sports performance, and through to the lowered AMG sports suspension with AMG-specific front axle - turn sporty driving into pure pleasure.
The heart of the vehicle is the efficient, high-torque 4-cylinder direct injection petrol engine with a meaty 155 kilowatts output. It is complemented by the 7G-DCT dual clutch transmission, which gives fluid gear-changing in record time and is obligatory in the Sport model. The tuning of both the engine and the transmission system was modified appropriately to suit the model.
