Next-Generation Mercedes A-Class Set To Be Unleashed


All will be revealed on February 2.

Mercedes has been teasing the all-new A-Class for a long time now, but the wait is nearly over. The automaker has announced that the luxurious hatchback will finally make its world debut in Amsterdam next week on February 2 which will be streamed online. To whet our appetite until then, Mercedes has released a revealing teaser of the new A-Class, and it’s clear that it will look a lot more aggressive than its best-selling predecessor. Its front fascia immediately reminds us of the latest CLS with its triangular headlights and wide front grille.

Like the CLS, distinctive L-shaped daytime running lights have also been incorporated into the headlights.Mercedes says the new A-Class “retains its youthful and dynamic character, yet it is also more grown up and comfortable than ever. It completely redefines modern luxury in the compact class, and revolutionizes interior design.” Speaking of the interior, Mercedes has already shown off the opulent cabin inside the new A-Class, and to say it’s a significant upgrade is an understatement. Quite simply, it has hands down the best infotainment system we’ve ever had the pleasure of using thanks to the new Mercedes-Benz User Experience.

While the next-generation Mercedes A-Class will debut as a hatchback in Europe, rumors suggest it will be sold in America for the first time in the model’s history as a compact sedan with a wide variety of engine options.

It will be sold with as many as seven gasoline and four diesel units depending on the market, including a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder making 400 horsepower in the range-topping AMG A45. After its world debut, the new Mercedes A-Class will make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
