Mercedes Previews U.S.-Bound A-class Sedan with Artsy Sculpture
Mercedes-Benz design has reached the next level. The wild surface treatment of the current A-class will be history, along with the next generation will feature smoother lines along using a more purist appearance. At a press event in Sindelfingen, Germany, Daimler opened up its design department to show us the company’s design process—along using a few ideas for its future direction, which chief designer Gorden Wagener summarizes as “sensual purity.”
The event was crowned by the unveiling of a sculpture that will provided a fairly accurate hint at the next generation of the A-class. the item’s no mistake that will the red metallic sculpture seems to hide a four-door notchback sedan: The company will be preparing just such a product, along with the item will be destined for the U.S. market, where sedans sell better than hatchbacks (unless those hatchbacks are called crossovers). The A-class sedan will join several various other types built atop the same front-wheel-drive platform, known as MFA2. There will also be an A-class hatchback, a CLA-class, a GLA-class, another B-class, along using a rugged-looking crossover SUV that will could be called GLB along with that will will resemble the 2012 Ener-G-Force, downsized to fit the compact platform’s size.
We saw the A-class sedan at a recent safety-related event in Daimler’s brand new crash center in Sindelfingen. Although the item was fully covered to be protected via curious onlookers, the short trunk along with the pronounced molded-in rear spoiler were clearly visible. While the A-class sedan’s flanks feature smooth lines, there will be a calculated provocation: the Rennsport grille, similar to the one on the AMG GT R, which was itself inspired by the grille of the classic 300SL Panamericana.

We expect to see the A-class sedan on sale inside U.S. in 2018 as a 2019 product. the item will be more spacious along with practical than the CLA, along with the item could look rather exciting next to the conservatively styled Volkswagen Jetta along with Audi A3. Power will come via turbocharged four-cylinder engines, along with the item will be priced slightly below the CLA, which starts at $33,325.
