Mercedes-Benz A-Class spotted testing

March 12, 2017, 05:47 PM IST by Santosh Nair
Mercedes-Benz A-Class spotted testing

Last month we reported spying upon the upcoming A-Class which was undergoing cold weather testing. Recently the A-Class was spotted again and it's apparent that some minor changes have been made since then.

Due to heavy camouflaging, the changes to the body panels have still been concealed, but this test mule has two sensors behind the inner rear view mirror (the earlier had only one) to support the on-board electronics. It is also seen that the upgraded one is equipped with alloy wheels (the earlier one had steel wheels). Sources suggest that the new A-Class will be markedly wider than the outgoing W176 model which was pushed into production in 2012. 

Though this A-Class prototype doesn't appear to be longer, it could be decidedly roomier since it’s underpinned by the new MFA2 platform. Also, it is claimed that by shifting the seats lower down in the car, Mercedes has the option to create more headroom. Now, despite no clarification from the brand regarding the engines, we expect the current engines to be retuned before powering the new car. Furthermore, it is also believed that an all-new 2.0-litre turbodiesel motor and a plug-in hybrid powertrain, currently under development, could make its way to the new A-Class. 

Stay tuned to CarWale for more information as Mercedes-Benz is expected to introduce the new A-Class early next year in the global arena.
