Next-gen Mercedes A-Class to be noticeably roomier than current model

Next-gen Mercedes A-Class to be noticeably roomier than current model

We have come across one of the prototypes of the next-gen Mercedes A-Class yet again. Like earlier, the car is nearly covered up by the camouflage except for some areas like the hood and the roof. We expect this new model to come out early next year.

Interestingly, nearly all new cars launched in Europe in the past few years are larger than their predecessors and this holds true for the A-Class as well. It will be noticeably wider than the outgoing W176 model launched in 2012. The prototype doesn't appear to be much longer, but it should be roomier thanks to all the engineering work that's going into the new MFA platform. 

By moving the engines slightly or placing the seats lower down in the car, Mercedes will be able to create more headroom. Also, the boot is likely to have a larger capacity and it certainly presents a wider opening.

Mercedes flaunted a huge development budget for its next-gen powertrains, which could result in a brand new 2-litre turbo diesel finding its way under the hood of the new A-Class. A plug-in hybrid version of the A-Class is reportedly under development, though it hasn't been seen yet.

Mercedes is expected to showcase the new A-Class at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2018 before it rolls into showrooms worldwide.
