A-Class Sedan Is Mercedes' Take On BMW 1-Series Saloon

Mercedes-Benz is planning of offensive of compact cars, most of which will be unveiled next year, with the A-Class Sedan being one of them.

Previewed by the Concept A Sedan that debuted in Shanghai, earlier this year, it will basically be the four-door version of the next-gen A-Class hatch, and it's coming to address the brand's Audi A3 Sedan and China-only BMW 1-Series Sedan problems.

The car is currently in prototype form, but we can still see the clear Merc' lines all around, even from beneath the camo, whereas the interior will be dominated by the brand's new MBUX infotainment, which combines a dual-screen in a similar layout to the system that debuted on the new E-Class.

Sharing an updated MFA2 architecture with the rest of the compact family, including the A-Class, B-Class, CLA, GLA, and rumored GLB, will give it access to a variety of engines, although it's not clear yet what units we should expect.

We'd wager that AMG 35/45 versions of the car won't be available, as Mercedes will likely limit them to the A' Sedan's other four-door sibling, the CLA.
