What started life as a quirky subcompact around twenty-one years ago has now morphed into a stylish, sporty number that is as high-tech as they come. This is the latest-generation Mercedes-Benz A-Class, which was just unveiled in Amsterdam.
With a longer wheelbase, wider track, and a meaner and more aggressive stance, the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class now sports a downward-sloping front grille flanked by slanted headlights. These light clusters can even be specified to feature multi-beam LED units to improve nighttime visibility.
At the side, the shoulder line is likewise more pronounced, as are the wheel arches. And the rear echoes the opposite end’s menacing yet still elegant demeanor.
While the outside may look like an evolution of the previous iteration, the interior is where Mercedes-Benz made some of the biggest changes. The main highlight is the new MBUX, which is essentially the brand’s latest cutting-edge in-car infotainment and driver assistance system. First unveiled at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year, MBUX makes its world debut in the newest A-Class.
