Mercedes A-Class Scooped By A Reader In Stuttgart

The redesigned Mercedes A-Class has been caught in Stuttgart, Germany by CarScoops reader Vasilis.

Expected to debut early next year at the Geneva Motor Show, the A-Class will have a familiar design but adopt a more aggressive front fascia with a single-bar grille that is flanked by angular headlights. The car is also larger than its predecessor and this will give the model a more spacious and airy cabin.

Mercedes has already released interior photos and they show the A-Class will have a significantly improved cockpit with higher quality materials and a more upscale design. Notable highlights include a new multifunctional steering wheel, wraparound trim, and circular air vents. The model will also be offered with an ambient lighting system and heated / ventilated multicontour front seats with a massage function.

The standard model will come with two 7-inch displays, while higher end variants feature a 7- and 10.25-inch display or two 10.25-inch displays. Owners can also expect a more accommodating interior with additional elbow, shoulder, and headroom. The boot has also grown as it can now hold 370 liters (13.0 cubic feet) of luggage.

The model will ride on an updated version of the MFA platform and it will be offered with an assortment of different petrol and diesel engines. Mercedes AMG boss Tobias Moers has already confirmed plans for two performance models and the A35 is expected to have a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces around 340 hp (253 kW). It will be joined by a new A45 which will reportedly develop more than 400 hp (298 kW).

Thanks to Vasilis for the pictures!
