Introduced in 2012, the brand-new A-Class marked the starting of a brand-new epoch in the design of Mercedes-Benz cars. Not that the Stuttgart benefactions were offensive to look at before, but the A-Class really was an eye-opener. That probably has to do with the information that it regenerated one of the ugliest cars Mercedes-Benz ever made, even though it did supervise to tone down its offensivenesses in the later versions. But primate on the shoulder aside, the brand-new A-Class broached a dense stroke to BMW's 1 series and Audi's A3, opening itself quickly as a first contestant in the premium compact segment. The A-Class mainly has two kinds of consumers, those who really want a Mercedes-Benz but can't spend the gigantic versions, or those who emotion Mercedes-Benz cars, are probably long moment possessors and have suddenly created the need for a compact car.
It was the former category that transported the company a gigantic amount of first-moment customers, and that can recite income in the long term. After a facelifting process for the whole firm extent that moved over many months, Mercedes-Benz is now getting prepared for the second A-Class epoch after the model stopped being a confused MPV and turned into a pretty car. We don't expect the design changes to be too large, but the brand-new A-Class should be more dandified, more high-class. The dashboard will finally be decluttered and regenerated by an area console in tone with what we've perceived on later versions as in C-Class.
Technically communicating , it all comes down to the brand-new MFA2 i.e. Modular Front Architecture platform. The changes will give the brand-new compact range which have good controlling and upgraded serenity thanks to the increased wheelbase and dimension. It will also make the indoor a bit commodious, even though we wouldn't expect anything too melodramatic. We're communicating specified centimeters here, where long legs it'll probably still be good to be away from those back seats.
The engine roll will see some brand-new faces as Mercedes-Benz is giving up on the Renault sourced small displacement diesel engines with modular shape designs. That means the brand-new A-Class will follow BMW's govern and go for three-cylinder units, something that sounds a lot worse than it actually will be. convinced with lowering performance, with better mileage and won't noise the place or hurt your ears as old three-cylinder diesel engines used to.
Expected that AMG to get referred as well, and following the superbly inhumane A45. Expect over 400 horsepower from the top model as well as a more lower-class one labelled the A40 that will offer a more administrable 300 horsepower. There are also gossips about a hybrid model which should pleasure those who like their car more technologically advanced. The brand-new A-Class is still about one year away from us.
