The stunning looking A-Class with its million-dollar shot of the front grille was until now, offered in a choice of only three exterior shades: Red, White and grey. Now however, Mercedes Benz India have decided to offer the A-Class diesel variant in an added shade of sporty black. The German automakers also confirmed that the new shade of black on the A-Class diesel won’t command any hike in price of the variant. The A-Class diesel in black would continue to retail at Rs 26,48,696 (ex-showroom, Mumbai).

The black paint job won’t be offered on the petrol variant of the A-Class immediately, but the company is considering the option and could start offering the petrol A-Class in the new shade of black in a month’s time.

As a refresher, the Mercedes Benz A-Class is being offered in India in two variants: the A180 CDI Style Diesel and the A180 Sport Petrol. Powering the petrol variant is a 1.6-litre unit that is rated at 122PS and 200Nm of peak torque, while the powering the diesel variant is a 2.1-litre, four cylinder unit that is able to churn out 108PS of max power and 250Nm of peak torque. Both engines come mated to a 7-Speed dual clutch automatic transmission. The 0 to 100 kmph mark is reached in 9.2 seconds in case of the A-Class petrol, while the diesel variant takes up to 9.2 seconds to achieve the same feat.
