More dynamism, more style
The new generation A-Class features an array of subtle design touches that lift the car to another level of dynamism and style.
The tail light cluster has been redesigned and the headlamps reshaped, giving the car a broader appearance. We’ve created a new-look front apron with a more angular, sporty-looking air intake, and reworked the radiator grille. In fact, each model line now has its own distinctive grille louvres.
In addition, we’ve made the bonnet slightly shorter and steeper. In combination with the large, sloping windscreen, this adds drama to the car’s signature sweeping shoulder line.
Other details depend on the model line you choose. For example, the Elegance SE is fitted with stunning 16” 10-twin-spoke alloy wheels while the Avantgarde SE features a more athletic 5-spoke design.
It’s all about quality
Take a seat in the new A-Class and you’ll be struck by the sheer quality of materials and the impeccable interior finish.
All-new high-grade seat fabrics are hard-wearing, tactile and stylish. The new door panels are durable and solid, with a pleasingly simple aesthetic design. The seat cushion design has been improved for maximum comfort.
What’s more, each new model line features its own distinctive trim elements – for example, Smoke Grey brushed aluminium for the Avantgarde.
It all adds up to a luxurious, premium-quality driving experience – as you’d expect from a Mercedes-Benz.
A joy to use
In developing the new A-Class, we placed enormous emphasis on convenience and practicality.
Despite its compact exterior appearance, the car’s interior is surprisingly roomy with ergonomic design throughout. Every button and control is within easy reach and the raised driving position ensures good visibility. Passengers also enjoy raised seating with outstanding shoulder and legroom.
In addition, the new A-Class boasts a maximum boot capacity of 535 litres behind the rear seat and 1,370 litres behind the driver’s seat – plenty of space for shopping or luggage. Stowing or retrieving your belongings couldn’t be easier, thanks to the tailgate’s smart design with extra wide opening.
In order to enhance performance and reduce fuel consumption, we worked hard on improving the aerodynamics of the new A-Class.
This involved a number of tweaks to the car’s already outstanding design. For example, optimising the spoiler lip in the tailgate and reshaping the front and rear aprons and wheel arches. We even reworked the exterior mirror design and mounting.
Anything that could be done to reduce drag – even by a tiny amount – has been incorporated into the new A-Class. The result is an outstanding drag coefficient of 0.29 to 0.31* – giving reduced fuel consumption and improved performance.
