In a bid to sweeten the offering, Mercedes has also decided to throw in an eight-years' warranty on engine and transmission within the price of the A-Class Limousine.
Mercedes is now hoping that the A-Class, complete with the price points at which it is offered at, is able to find its strong mark in the market. "We are confident the A-Class will set a new benchmark in the segment and attract a lot of new customers to the Three Pointed Star," said Martin Schwenk, MD and CEO at Mercedes-Benz India, adding that the A 35 AMG - the second locally-produced AMG in the country after the AMG GLC 43 Coupe - will also play a key role. "We want the AMG brand to play a larger role in our overall product offering in India and give direction to other performance motoring brands in the market."
