The new generation of Mercedes A-Class will grow in size and reach, with up to eight separate variants of new sedan planned. The upcoming 2018 Mercedes-Benz A-Class was spotted once again, and this time almost everything was laid bare.
From these spy photos, we can see all the details about replacing the upcoming Class A. It will look like the outgoing car with a long hood and a slightly rounded interior, but slightly longer and the roof will not go down as much. It will be good for the legs and the head.
Expect practicality to be greatly enhanced with a redesigned rear end that no longer has the brake lights cutting into the boot opening. The taillights are similar to those mounted on the GLA, and the bumpers are slightly updated from the current model. At the front, the headlights are inspired by the Concept A sedan and they look to be halogenous on this pre-production model, although LED lights will be an option. It is unlikely that you will be able to order the impressive nacho-cheese color film this pre-production model will be used for crash tests and orange is needed for this.
All Class A variants will share the combinations of engines and gearboxes. Diesel models will continue to account for a significant share of Class A sales, with a new 2.0-liter diesel engine replacing the current 2.1-liter unit. The power will be between 148 hp and 194 hp, while versions 1.6 and 2.0 liter turbo gasoline will also be offered. A hybrid plug-in version of the A-Class hatch, marketed under Merc’s new EQ Power division, is also in preparation.
We could see the finished and brilliant Class A at the Detroit show in January 2018, and the prices should not go up too much, so the base cars will probably still cost about £ 20,000. If you want to grill the A45 AMG, you will need a budget of over £ 50,000.
