The addition of two new variants featuring the same feisty turbocharged 2.0-litre engine as the popular Mercedes-Benz A 250 hatch are set to round out a diverse offering for the A-Class Sedan range introduced locally in 2019.
The addition of the front-wheel-drive Mercedes-Benz A 250 and all-wheel drive A 250 4MATIC models slot into the sedan line-up between the Mercedes-Benz A 180 Sedan and the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Sedan.
The Sedan range provides a more practical alternative to hatchback variants of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class family, with both sedans featuring boot space of 420 litres (rear seats in place), an increase of 50 litres over corresponding hatchbacks, plus a 950mm-wide boot opening for easy loading of larger items.
The new A 250 Sedan family comprises two variants – front-wheel-drive and 4MATIC (all-wheel-drive). All A 250s are powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 165kW and 350Nm, paired to a 7G-DCT seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

It also incorporates 18-inch, 5 twin-spoke alloy wheels in high-sheen black plus a two-pipe, chrome-look exhaust system.
Mercedes-Benz A 250 4MATIC Sedan
The Mercedes-Benz A 250 4MATIC Sedan adds several features over the A 250 Sedan, in addition to the all-weather assurance and superior dynamics of the 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system.
