Mercedes-Benz India showcased its entry-level sedan model at the 2020 Auto Expo earlier this year called the A-Class Limousine. The new model was expected to be launched right after its showcase at the expo in the Indian market.
However, the A-Class Limousine's arrival into the Indian market has been delayed due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. According to the latest report from Autocar India, the company is now looking to launch the A-Class sedan by the end of October 2020 in the country.

This A-Class AMG A35 features an aggressive front bumper, larger side skirts, bigger alloy wheels as compared to standard models. Other additions include a rear diffuser with a boot-lip spoiler and chrome exhaust tips; among others.
On the inside, it follows signature AMG theme with bucket seats, a sporty steering wheel with mounted controls and paddle shifters, a fully-digital instrument console and most of all a blacked-out colour scheme.
The AMG model also receives a premium Burmester surround sound system, LED ambient lighting, a large sunroof and two 10.25-inch screens for infotainment and instrumentation. The sedan also comes equipped with brand's latest MBUX AI assistance with connected technology and more.
Powering the AMG A35 will be a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine producing a maximum of 304bhp and a peak torque of 400Nm. The engine comes mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with power going to the front wheels.
Standard petrol and diesel models more or less come equipped with all the features as seen on the AMG version. However, it will feature lower-size wheels with less aggressive exterior design. On the inside, the standard versions of the A-Class Limousine will offer normal seating instead of the sporty bucket-style on the AMG trim.
The standard A-Class sedan is expected to be offered with two engine options: the ‘A 200' powered by a 1.3-litre turbo-petrol engine producing 162bhp and the ‘A 180d' powered by a 1.5-litre diesel motor producing 115bhp. Both engines are offered with either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed DCT transmission.
