Mercedes-Benz has once again been spotted testing their next-gen A-Class. The heavily camouflaged prototype was seen on the roads of Prague in Czech Republic with a lot of masking on the front-end to mask the true shape of the design.
In this sighting, the interiors of the car is visible. Now, despite the dashboard being covered with some black fabric, a largely digital display with a new steering wheel can be seen. Also, since the new A-Class will be underpinned by the updated MFA platform, the extra wheelbase will come handy in liberating more space in the car’s cabin. You can also spot the extra length through the longer rear doors that house the larger quarter glass.
Powering the next A-Class is a new 1.4-litre petrol engine that’s co-developed by Mercedes and Renault. It is believed that this motor could power the base variant of the A-Class. Then there’s also the petrol 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre motors with mild hybrid capabilities, and a 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine with variable power outputs. Mercedes will introduce the next-generation A-Class in 2018 and it will first be offered as a hatchback. The A-Class sedan will eventually join the line-up at a later time. We shall keep you posted about the developments in the months to come.
