First Look At The 2019 Mercedes A-Class



As Mercedes-Benz’s foray into the world of affordable sedans, the 2019 A-Class is still under development and won’t be due until next year, but a camouflaged prototype was recently spotted on German roads. This is our first glimpse of the A-Class Sedan, which will be sitting on Mercedes' Modular Front-wheel-drive Architecture (MFA) platform.

From looking at the side profile, we can see that it’s sporting a higher roofline than those modeled after a coupe’s swoopy roofline, thus providing rear passengers with more headroom. This should also translate into additional trunk space.

Of course, we shouldn’t expect the same premium materials one would usually find in the CLA since the A-Class Sedan is going to be cheaper. But the vehicle should still uphold the manufacturer’s reputation for luxury cars, at least that is what Mercedes dealers in the United States are saying. Describing the A-Class Sedan as a “very-nice looking vehicle” featuring a “cutting edge and techy” interior.



There’s even a shot of the interior’s fully digital dashboard display, which leads us to believe that the prototype is a higher trim model. According to Motor1, this interior configuration is likely to become the standard for all Mercedes compact cars.

Though the automaker is remaining tight lipped on possible powertrains, we can expect a similar lineup of engines as the hatchback. That includes an array of 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter turbocharged four-pots, paired with either a six-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The model should debut in 2018 following the regular five-door A-Class hatchback which is due the same year.

Not a fan of that dashboard display with the piece of black plastic separating the two. Either have them fully separated or connect the two. Maybe it'll look better in person, but so far I'm not a fan.

As pointed out in the other thread this interior shares a lot with the C-Class, enough that its not all cookie cutter but carries on the DNA with its own unique spin. There's even a dual screen setup like the S-Class which is the biggest surprise of all, unless it has to do purely with testing .

Just realized that screen layout is similar to another test mule where they covered up more. If we get S-Class style instrument cluster as seen in these pictures then i will be very impressed and much like other Mercedes models it will be the best looking one in the segment.

ah even better news for us but not so much for C-Class owners, the c-class is getting a similar dash treatment, finally a vital feature like this is becoming line-up wide and not just e-class and up or c-class and up

c-class interior:

get used to it because if there's one thing that Mercedes will streamline its tech like this, just think about it, for the most part this stuff is software that they introduce in phases depending on the car so regardless where they use it, there's always something to gain.

Found another update of the hatch and just as expected for anyone that has been following this thread... its shaping up to be just like the A-Class sedan. If they don't sell both the sedan and hatch globally then I think they will be doing customers a major disservice
