Mercedes-Benz A-Class officially teased ahead of 2 February reveal

Mercedes-Benz A-Class officially teased ahead of 2 February reveal

Mercedes-Benz has officially given out the reveal date of the new-gen A-Class hatchback. The W177 A-Class will be revealed to the world on 2 February 2018 at a special event in Amsterdam before making its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

The new gen A-Class has already appeared testing on many occasions  with a heavy and not so heavy camouflage. The Stuttgart-based carmaker revealed a teaser video of the hatchback undergoing final testing a few days back. So we know that the new A-Class will adopt a new design language which was debuted in the new-gen CLS.  It will move to a new platform making it roomier and more practical than the outgoing car at the same time shedding some extra weight as well. 

The cabin for the new A-Class has been already revealed at the CES earlier this month. The hatchback will receive the large floating display which has directly trickled down the flagship S-Class. So now you have a dual screen stacked atop the dashboard and an all-digital instrument cluster. These screens are available in three versions – two seven-inch (17.78 cm), one seven and one 10.25-inch (26 cm) or with two 10.25-inch displays. Mercedes has also introduced something called MBUX - Mercedes-Benz User Experience in the new infotainment system.

Mercedes-Benz aims to make the new-gen A-Class even more premium. The hatchback will enter into its fourth generation. It has been one of the highest selling models for the Three-pointed Star and hence the carmaker wants to continue the high demand for the hatch with the new generation. The new A will set up a new benchmark for the segment when it arrives.

The new A-Class will also benefit from the Daimler-Renault alliance in terms of powertrain. The turbocharged 1.3-litre four-cylinder petrol engine derived from the alliance will be present with different states of tune. Apart from that, the newly developed 2.0-litre turbo diesel will also find its way under the hood of the new A-Class. A plug-in hybrid version of the A-Class is also on the cards.

The new gen A-Class will also spawn an all-new sedan sometime next year. After its international debut, the German hatchback will promptly make its way to India. However, with the new generation, if Mercedes prices the entry-level hatch in between Rs 20-25 lakhs, it could become a volume seller in the country. Thus it would make sense to even locally assemble the car here in India at the carmaker’s Pune facility.
