A comfortable, sporty, efficient or completely individual vehicle setting can be actioned using the DYNAMIC SELECT switch in the upper control panel. Parameters such as the characteristics of the engine, transmission, steering and suspension are altered depending on the selected transmission mode. The four driving modes in the new A-Class are "Comfort", "Sport", "Eco" and "Individual".
7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission (7G-DCT)
The dual clutch transmission combines the comfort of a 7-speed automatic transmission with the driving dynamics of a manual transmission. When changing gear with manual transmissions, the tractive power driving the vehicle is interrupted. In contrast, the 7G-DCT consists of two sub-transmissions, one of which transfers the tractive power to the wheels while the other is preselecting the next gear. This leads to fast, smooth gear changing without any interruptions in tractive power and results in improved acceleration.
Uncompromised safety and assistance features:
With numerous safety features and driving assistance systems, the new A-Class provides the driver comprehensive support and protection. The assistance systems, which fuse data from various sensor technologies as part of the 'Intelligent Drive' concept, significantly enhance safety and comfort. Class leading safety features including 6 airbags, ESP, ASR (Acceleration Skid Control), ABS, Brake Assist System, Attention Assist, Hill Start Assist, Adaptive Brake Lights Flashing, makes the new A-Class one of the safest cars on Indian roads.
