Test drive the all new A-Class and you could win an iPad Mini
Test drive the all new Mercedes-Benz A-Class this weekend and you could be in with a chance of winning a brand new iPad Mini.

Test drive the all new Mercedes-Benz A-Class this weekend at MSL Ballsbridge Motors and you could be in with a chance of winning a brand new iPad Mini.

The third generation of the A-Class is a completely different beast to the previous A-Class models. It was first debuted at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year and the all-new A-Class design scrapes the old tall and short compact car look for a much sportier, more attractive look.

It’s now a sleek and sporty hatchback that suits the desires of a lot more people than the previous two generations. The old A-Class wasn’t really a big hit with younger drivers, but this new A-Class is sure to appeal to both young and old.

Two models will take centre stage initially - one is an A180 petrol version which comes on the market at €26,435 (ex works) and the other an A180 CDI diesel version at €28,550, the version likely to attract most attention due, in part, to its greener CO2 emissions of just 98g/km.

The new A-Class is compatible with the needs of the iPhone/iPad generation, and its optional on board high-tech functionality is such that iPhone Siri voice-activated units and iPad music and Apps can be played through the car’s infotainment system.

Already something of a ‘wunderkind’ in terms of its environmental features, the A-Class 180 CDI is acknowledged by the German TÜV organisation as offering fuel savings of up to 26 percent, emissions as low as 98g CO2/km, a best in class CD value of 0.27 and petrol engines that comply with Euro 6 emissions standard.

As we said, prices for the all-new A-Class are expected to start at around €26,000 and if you head down to MSL Ballsbridge Motors this weekend you can check out the new A-Class at the MSL Ballsbridge Open Day. To sweeten the deal, anyone who test drives the car on the day will be entered into a draw to win an iPad Mini... Sounds pretty good, right?

Check out the MSL Ballsbridge website for opening times.
