2019 Mercedes A 220 4MATIC – Youthful And Dynamic. 2019 Mercedes-Benz A 220 4MATIC – Drive, Interior and Exterior. Color: Jupiter Red. Subscribe.
The new Mercedes-Benz A-Class is as youthful and dynamic as ever, but grown-up and comfortable like never before. It completely redefines modern luxury in the compact class, and revolutionises interior design. Technologically the new A-Class not only takes first place thanks to MBUX – Mercedes-Benz User Experience: it also offers a number of functions that were previously the preserve of the luxury class. In certain driving situations it is able to drive semi-autonomously for the first time, and MULTIBEAM LED headlamps are available on request.
The new A-Class with the 1991 cc petrol engine is optionally available with the permanently engageable 4MATIC all-wheel drive system with fully variable torque distribution and comes in two output variants: as the A 220 4MATIC rated at 140 kW (190 hp) and as the A 250 4MATIC rated at 165 kW (224 hp). Both deliver their power to an automated 7G‑DCT dual clutch transmission. The sporty all-wheel drive system has been developed further compared with the predecessor, and now offers even more driving pleasure and efficiency.
4MATIC components include the power take-off to the rear axle, which is integrated into the transmission, and the rear axle differential with an integrated multi-plate clutch. This is no longer electro-hydraulically powered, but instead electro-mechanically.
Drive torque distribution between the front and rear axles is fully variable. Depending on the driving situation, 100 percent of the drive torque can be directed to the front axle (e.g. when driving straight ahead with no increased slip at the front axle), or in borderline cases up to 100 percent can be directed to the rear axle if the friction coefficient suddenly changes.
Using the DYNAMIC SELECT switch, the driver is able to influence the characteristics of 4MATIC even more than before. In the A-Class there are two characteristic curves available for clutch control. The vehicles equipped with 4MATIC have a four-link rear suspension.
