Mercedes-Benz Offers A 180 Urban: A Shining Star for Only P 1.8M
Mercedes-Benz is shifting towards a more youthful market through its A180 Urban. The car is bringing a newfound flair of an order that can be rarely seen in a single generational change. At P 1,790,000 (or as low as P 17,900 monthly), it brings a sense of a well-priced premium vehicle given its curb appeal and cozy interior ambiance.
To begin with, theMercedes-Benz A-Class is no less an attractive and high-end small hatchback. It may look more like a ‘Baby Benz’ but the small package comes complete with huge attributes like a nicely finished cabin, exquisite luxury features, and safety equipment.
Being an entry-level car does not mean it is basic. The A180 Urban is still very much a Mercedes-Benz car, totally better in all aspects compared to its mainstream contemporaries. Here are the main reasons why you should consider buying this hatchback.
Just like all modern cars, the A180 Urban is without a doubt an easy drive. In comparison, it facilitates a more refined and smoother driving experience than most of its competitors. The power is smooth, the gear changes are seamless, and the handling is neutral. The premium hatchback is equipped with an immediately responsive engine.
The A180 Urban has best-in-class drag co-efficient of 0.27, contributing to its fuel-saving capacity as it runs on the highway. While driving in the city, its standard stop-start system would also lead to lower fuel consumption, which rates at an impressive 17.24 km/L.
The interior of the A180 Urban is nicely functional, without missing on being pleasantly stylish. All windows are one-touch up and down and the controls are laid out sensibly. Quick-to-operate buttons accessorize the dashboard, which interestingly also includes an infotainment system.
For overall seating comfort, backrest angle is strategically set, while there is ample leg and foot room. The fold-down center armrest is another interior feature to count on. Passengers at the back would appreciate their slightly elevated seat base complimented by the slim front headrests, facilitating better vision forward.
Standard safety features include seven airbags and a radar collision prevention system with adaptive brake assist. Active parking assist, parking sensors, and iPod and Bluetooth connectivity are among the other standard features of the A180 Urban.
