Mercedes Releases More 2018 A-Class Photos



Mercedes-Benz’s new A-Class small hatch is a work of beauty and what better way to appreciate its sleek styling, before they hit showroom floor, than the newly released photo album.

Hoping to get a leg up on premium compact rivals like the Audi A3 and BMW 1-Series, Mercedes has overhauled it entry level model and given it a set of redesigned mirrors, re-worked A-pillar, a rear spoiler, diffuser that works, and what Motoring calls a “wind-bending front bumper.” What’s more, the A-Class now has a nearly flat underfloor even though we can’t clearly see this change in the photos.

One of the biggest changes can be found inside the cabin, namely the all-new infotainment system called MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience). Situated above the chrome turbine air vents, which changes color to red or blue depending on your chosen temperature, is a dual-display setup. Featuring two 10.25-inch HD widescreen displays that’s usually found in more expensive models, the A-Class will have buyers “reaching for their chequebook” before they’ve even test driven the car.

Of course looks alone aren’t enough, that’s why the MBUX comes with a multitude of features including phone, navigation, audio, Bluetooth connectivity, climate control and vehicle settings. All of this can be on display at the same time on the main infotainment screen. The system even comes with an artificial intelligence and advanced voice recognition system.

The A-Class is already rolling off the Rastatt assembly line and should go into production at four other plants situated around the world.

No detail was spared when it came to the A-Class, you can even see every ridge and line in its taillights. Not so obvious when lit, and it may be more detailed than the headlamps.

Its attention to detail like that which has me looking forward to what brands like Brabus will be offering to a-class owners.

I definitely prefer the looks of the hatchback over the sedan, and I've been very impressed with the tech that's been showed off in early reviews. Quite the entry level package MB is finally bringing to NA consumers.

If you plan owning something long term then the hatch might not be a good option because what are the odds it will live on another 6-7 years?
We're likely to see Mercedes stick to SUV's and crossovers for the long term.

I don't think its fair to say that just yet. Why not wait till first 6+ months of sales numbers get released?

Its a safe buy now and will be for many years to come.

CPO GLA can be a good alternative if you need the space.
