Mercedes-Benz has just added two new engines to the line-up of its new hatchback, and interestingly both are diesels. With the two engines “options”, the A200 Sport and A220d AMG Line. The A 200d is available in both Sport and AMG Line trim, with the A220d only available in the latter.
The A200d makes 148bhp and 236lb ft from its 2.0-litre block, and returns up to 67.3mpg in fuel efficiency. Top speed is a limited 137mph, and you’ll get from 0-62mph in just 8.1 seconds.
The A220d also uses a 2.0-litre engine but squeezes out 187bhp and 295lb ft of torque, and you get fuel consumption of 65.7mpg. It’ll do 0-62mph in just 7.0 seconds, and has a slightly faster, 146mph limited top speed.
Both models will come with an eight-speed DCT automatic transmission and everything from the MBUX digital touchscreen and voice-operated infotainment, to semi-autonomous functions and keyless-entry comes as standard with the Sport trim.
AMG-line customers also get 18-inch alloys, a diamond grille, and AMG styling inside and out.
