The A-class is available in Britain at a starting price of £18,945 (US$29,600 and €23,800). The sales will commence in Britain from the month of December 2012. We’ll sum it up and make it easy for you to understand:

All the variants will be Front-Wheel-Drive  and a 6-Speed Manual or a 7-Speed Automatic gearbox will perform the duty.
