After a long development period, Mercedes-Benz almost finished the new A-Class. According to AutoExpress, the first member of the family will be a hatchback with eight different variations, and we will see the car at the Geneva Motor Show.
The new A-Class is saying goodbye to the tablet-type screen
The new A-Class will be built on Daimler’s MFA architecture, and the size of the car will be slightly larger than the current model. Among the expectations we will see is a more radical approach in the cabin of the car, which is supposed to have a more elegant design on the outside. The current tablet-like display will leave the place to the console-embedded double-screen layout as in the new E-Class.
The A-Class Sedan and the new CLA are also on the way!
After the introduction of the hatchback bodywork, the next member of the family is expected to be the new A-Class Sedan. The car-related tips expected to be introduced next year were given with the Concept Sedan. The car will be a direct competitor to the four-door A3.
The brand will then introduce the new CLA. It is also rumored that the next generation of CLA will have a version of the Shooting Brake form. The German giant will start working on the new generation of GLA in the near future.
‘Semi-AMG’ version will also be available
All members of the new A-Class family will share the same engine and infrastructure. The brand will also produce a hot-hatch version of the model’s AMG logotype with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine with a power of about 400 HP.
On the AMG front, the brand can also see the S3 Sportback, with the A45 AMG coming up against the RS3 Sportback, perhaps with a version of the engine we mentioned above that produces less power.
