Savvy drivers with a smartphone can now use the new app for the Mercedes-Benz A-Class to get even more out of their model. The interactive app, which is currently available for the iPad and iPhone, acts as a three-dimensional brochure and guide to the car, and offers 360-degree views of both the outside and inside of the model.
Drivers are helped and supported by the information that the app can provide – it highlights the main technology and safety features with videos and more detail, offers a wealth of information on engines and suspensions, and contains a hub that compiles all of the latest social feeds and news on the A-Class in one place. Users can find out more about the model’s built-in Pre Safe technology, Emergency Call system and Lane Tracking package with just a few taps. Using the touchscreen, every section is easy to access and read, and zoom/scroll functions are literally right there at your fingertips.
For interested motorists who don’t yet own a Mercedes-Benz A-Class, or for owners looking to upgrade their exterior and interior features, the app gives a comprehensive breakdown of technical info and prices for every level of trim and optional upgrade. The iPhone version of the app also allows users to share their “walk-around” with friends through social media and via e-mail.
The app requires iOS 5.0 or later to run, and can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store now for free. Mercedes-Benz additionally provides apps for a number of its other models, which can also be found through the store. The Mercedes-Benz A-Class is available now at authorised dealerships throughout the United Kingdom.
Since the production started back in 2004, more than one million vehicles of the current A-Class model generation (W 169/BR 169) have come out the assembly line at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Rastatt. The final car of this series, an A 180 CDI in polar silver, has recently left the factory. The vehicle will arrive at a customer in France. "We are very proud of the success story of the A-Class we will continue to write with the next series. Preparations for the start of the new A-Class are already in full swing.", said Peter Wesp, head of the Mercedes-Benz plant in Rastatt.
Daimler is investing a total of around €1.2 billion in the Rastatt plant for the production of the new compact models. In a first wave of expansion, €600 million were used e.g. for the construction of a new bodyshell building and for tools, and a further €600 million will follow this and next year for a second wave of expansion. These new investments are slated for modifications of the assembly and corresponding equipment installations in the bodyshell production.
