The range of compact cars Mercedes-Benz is offering continues to grow, with the introduction of the new A-Class sedan.

26 Jul 2018 | International News : Germany


The family of compact cars from Mercedes-Benz continues to grow. The new A-Class will also come in a sedan, and is set to be launched at the end of 2018.

The sedan model has the familiar A-Class virtues, and retains its low drag coefficient figure from the CLA-Class
The sedan model has the familiar A-Class virtues. These include modern, efficient engines, the high level of safety thanks to state-of-the-art driving assistance systems with S-Class functions, and the intuitive and intelligent Mercedes-Benz User Experience infotainment system (MBUX).

With a drag coefficient figure of 0.22, the new A-Class sedan has the lowest aerodynamic drag of all production vehicles worldwide and thereby defends the world record of the CLA-Class.

With its puristic design emphasising surfaces, the A-Class sedan is hot and cool at the same time, and thereby is a seamless fit with the design idiom of Sensual Purity. This includes the clear formal shapes emphasising surface areas with reduced lines and precise gaps. The new A-Class Sedan has the proportions of a dynamic and compact sedan car with short front and rear overhangs.

The unique interior architecture is shaped in particular by the avant garde design of the dashboard of which the designers completely dispensed with a cowl above the cockpit. As a result, the wing-shaped main body of the dashboard extends from one front door to the other with no visual discontinuity. The air vents in a sporty turbine look are another highlight.

The interior of the A-Class sedan is unique, with an avant garde design
The new A-Class sedan will be built in Aguascalientes, Mexico, and Rastatt, Germany, and was developed in Sindelfingen, Germany. The new model will be presented to the general public for the first time at the Paris Motor Show this year.

Mercedes-Benz already presented the A-Class L sedan at this year's Auto China in Beijing in April. This sedan model was developed as a long-wheelbase version for the Chinese market and is also produced there exclusively.

The A-Class established today's compact car segment of Mercedes-Benz in 1997 and since then, more than six million models have been delivered worldwide. The A-Class sedan as the seventh model further expands the range of compact cars from Mercedes-Benz. A logical addition, because with the C, E and S-Class, Mercedes-Benz has more premium sedan competence than most other manufacturers.
