MIAS 2016: Mercedes-Benz returns with A-Class display


After a year of absence, Auto Nation Group, Inc. joined the Manila International Auto Show (MIAS) once again. Leading its star-studded car display is the new-generation A-Class. The all-new A-Class now features the AMG Dynamic Select, which allows precise modification of the car’s character to suit the individual desires of the driver. Aside from an updated chassis with adaptive damping and LED high-performance headlamps, the A-Class comes with more range of available engines. Mercedes-Benz A-Class (2) The 160 with 75kW (102hp) is the new entry-level model, while the 80kW (109hp) BlueEFFICIENCY variant with 89g/km CO2 emissions. Racing fans will dig the special Motorsport Edition, which has a dramatic design in the style of the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula 1 team. Mercedes-Benz’s A-Class was joined by the rest of the brand’s new-generation compact cars, including the B-Class, CLA, and GLA. The 2015 World Car of the Year Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the legendary off-roader Mercedes-Benz G-Class also made an appearance a MIAS 2016.
