Mercedes-Benz A Class I (W168) Fuse box

Years of production: 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005

Mercedes Benz A-class falls into the premium section of the hatchback cars released by the German automobile manufacturer. The first generation of cars was released in the year 1997, the second generation was released in the year 2004 and the third generation of cars was released in the year 2012. The first generation of cars was fondly referred to as Baby Benz. 

Mercedes-Benz A-Class: Fourth Generation

The first, second, and third generation of the hatchback category of the class received wide reception among the audience and it gained a huge market all over the world. The fourth generation of cars was launched in the year 2018 and it has not gone on sale in other countries of the world as much as the first, second, and third generation. 

The Mercedes Benz A-class first-generation cars broke the myth that proper suspension levels can be provided only by the sedans and the cars that fell under the SUV and MUV category. The smooth-riding experience provided by the A class made it one of the top- selling cars then. The engines and other main components of the cars are placed in between two steel floors of the car so that it doesn’t slide into the main area of the car in case of any damage. 

The driver seat height was 20 cm higher than that of the usual driver seat height of the cars released during the last decade of the 20th century. The spacious interiors of the car give space for more than 4 people. 

The successful turnout of the first generation of A-class category of cars led to the development of the second third and fourth generation of cars. This car was seen as a revolution then and the unlimited number of advertisements flashed on TV screens grabbed eyeballs.
