Following the launch of the new A-Class earlier in the year, the engine line-up has been expanded with the addition of A 200 d W177 and A 220 d W177 models, both powered by Mercedes- Benz’s brand-new OM654 engine. Each is mated to a new eight-speed twin-clutch automatic transmission and have been tested to new RDE-2 emissions standards, meaning that these A-Class models will avoid the taxation surcharge that the Government added to diesel models last year.
