It took Mercedes-Benz over four years to come up with a new generation A-Class, which will debut in full at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.
However, until we see it in full, the Germans have started the teasing game, with the latest video showing a prototype of the premium small hatchback completing what the company calls "its last extensive test drives in wintry Sweden".
In between facing blizzards and pushing its tail out every now and then, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class was also taken to the climate tunnel, where it had to face extreme temperatures, before being treated to a proper wash.
Mercedes-Benz previews the cabin of the car for a few seconds, but we already know what it will look like, from previous scoops and teasers, with the dashboard dominated by a modern dual-screen layout, available in different sizes, depending on the selected model.
Finally, the German automaker promises "new engines" in the video's description, and it's expected to benefit from as many as 7 gasoline and 4 diesel units, including the 1.3-liter powertrain co-developed with the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, and the French brand's 1.5-liter dCi diesel.
And that's not all, because the new generation AMG A45 will sit at the top of the range, above the AMG A35, with at least 400hp.
More importantly, Mercedes-Benz is also believed to launch plug-in hybrid and electric versions of the 2019 A-Class.
