Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has introduced an all-new addition to its product line-up, the A-Class Saloon. The car is marketed locally as the A-Class Limousine but also goes by the A-Class Saloon in most official mentions. In the US and China, it often goes by the A-Class Sedan.

Two CBU variants will be introduced in Malaysia. These are the A200 Progressive Line and A250 AMG Line. Mercedes-Benz Malaysia say these will cost around RM230K and RM268K (estimated) each. They only showed the A200 Progressive Line at today’s launch.

In Malaysia, this is now the most affordable 4-door Mercedes-Benz you can buy new. Previously the CLA 200 and C200 were cheaper at RM237K and RM260K. Before the C-Class got its facelift, the C180 model was available for as little as RM216K at one point.

The new A-Class Saloon comes with a boot (420L, about the volume of a modern Proton Saga’s), 4 doors and a classic 3-box shape.
