The new A-class, which will still come from Rastatt, adds in length and wheel base on the level of the current long version. The body line was adapted the new Mercedes Designsprache. Received thereby the C-column moving in opposite directions and the pointed, rear side window remained.

Under the sheet metal a completely new engine generation works. The diesel engines have uniformly two litres capacity and to carry out 90, 110 and 130 HP. The Topversion under the Benzinern is a two-litre turbo-four-cylinder with 170 HP. As alternative to the manual six-gear shift there is a stepless CVT mechanism.

For more comfort a newly arranged interior, also the cockpit is to provide on a new Look was trimmed. So that the A-class of the sportier adjustment grew also chassis-laterally, a new multi-steering wheel rear axle is used, which besides the comfort in the small Benz to increase is.

the new A class does look better than the previous one. But it still looks more like a mini MPV than a car.
