As some you may remember, back in April Mercedes-Benz revealed a sedan version of the new A-Class exclusively for the Chinese market.

It’s these little details that make the A-Sedan a top player in this segment.
To be built in Mexico and Germany, the 2020 Mercedes A-Class Sedan will launch in two variants. The first is the A200 with 163 hp, 250 Nm, and the other A180d diesel packing 116 hp, 260 Nm.
