Under the hood, two engines are available. The A 180 BE has a 1.6-liter petrol engine that develops 122 HP (90 kW). It enables the model to average 5.2 l/100 km (45.2 mpg US / 54.3 mpg UK) and have CO2 emissions of 120 g/km.

Other the other hand, the A 180 CDI BE is powered by a 1.5-liter (1461 cc) engine that produces 109 HP (80 kW). This enables the model to be "most fuel-efficient Mercedes-Benz of all time" by averaging 3.6 l/100 km (65.3 mpg US / 78.4 mpg US) with CO2 emissions of 92 g/km.

The A-Class BlueEFFICIENCY Editions will go on sale in February and the first deliveries are scheduled for March.
