The A-Class long-wheelbase sedan was developed in China specifically for the Chinese market where wealthier individuals are driven by chauffeurs. (18 mm) higher than the existing standard-wheelbase C-Class sedan sold in North America.
Inside, the new A-class sedan features the same high-quality dashboard and advanced infotainment functions as the new A-Class hatchback, including Mercedes-Benz's new MBUX operating system that introduces touchscreen control, conversational speech recognition and the ability for two users to connect simultaneously.
Another China-exclusive for the A-Class is a diminutive 1.3-liter inline-four engine making 163 horsepower with a turbo 2.0-liter option coming later. Both engines will be offered exclusively with a standard seven-speed dual clutch gearbox.

Mercedes-Benz says the vehicle comes equipped with advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS) functions that's comparable to those used in an S-Class, without elaborating further but it's likely to include Distronic adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking and steering assist functions. Deliveries are due to begin in the third quarter of this year.
