2018 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Changes

Mercedes is set to upgrade its smallest hatchback to keep it fresh and running amid competition from its traditional rivals, BMW and Audi as well as the fast rising rivals from the east. Although the new 2018 Mercedes-Benz A-Class is slotted to go on sale next year (2017) as a 2018 model, we have already caught up with its prototype undergoing testing in Germany. The photos are a huge welcome considering the current third generation has been in the market for over 4 years now.

The third-generation A-Class has been around for only four years as of 2016, but Mercedes-Benz is already working on a brand-new model. That’s not exactly surprising though, as the Germans are looking to replace each model after a six-year cycle in the future. This means that a new A-Class should arrive for the 2018 model year, and you shouldn’t be surprised that the Stuttgart-based company is already testing the fourth-generation model on public roads.

Spotted stretching its wheels somewhere in Southern Europe, the upcoming compact appears to be in its early testing phase based on the heavy amount of camouflage covering its body. And even though some elements are far from finalized, the prototype provides quite a few hints about the changes Mercedes-Benz made to the hatchback.

2018 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Price

Pricing for the new 2018 Mercedes-Benz A-Class has been set at $26,000 – $29,000 based on current exchange rates. If there are changes on the 2018 Mercedes-Benz A-Class we will notify you as soon as possible, so keep follow our blog.

The interior should also get more than just a few nips and tucks, but I expect the layout to remain somewhat similar to the current one. The biggest change you should look forward to will be an infotainment screen integrated into the center stack instead of the “floating” display in the current model. This will also lead to a reconfiguring of the lower center stack, but Merc should keep the three-piece A/C vent configuration.

As with the exterior, the new A-Class will receive a heavily restyled interior. Key among the elements being touted for the new model is an optional digital display and heavily upgraded Command Infotainment system offering the latest connectivity functions, including mobile WLAN using a dedicated SIM card, Car Play and Android Auto compatibility, as well as new services from Mercedes Me.

Styling-wise, the new A-Class should feature an evolutionary design, but at the same time feature brand-new design elements. Due to the heavy camo and the fact that the test car still has thw pre-production front grille and taillights, it’s difficult to guess the new design, but it will most likely have sportier front and rear fascias and, given the new roofline, an overall sleeker design.

The biggest change that’s evident in these spy shots is the longer wheelbase and stretched rear doors. This will matter the most inside the rear passenger compartment, but it will also give the A-Class a different look. The side mirrors have also been re-positioned on the doors instead of the A-pillars, which should enhance visibility. Around back, it appears that the A-Class will get a bigger trunk opening and split taillights.

The entry-level Mercedes-Benz is also planned to run the same electronics platform as the new E-Class, the so-called Star 2.3 system. The new system supports a stereo camera function, as seen within the windscreen of the prototype captured here, allowing a range of new driver assistance functions, including Distronic Plus cruise control and Drive Pilot.

While the exterior was under heavy camouflage, the interior is a mystery at this point in time. However, I expect the cabin to be very luxurious. The cabin will likely feature a multi-function steering wheel and a larger TFT screen display. A dual pod instrument cluster is also likely.

The model will also feature another touch-screen to host the infotainment system which will be mounted on the center console. As you would expect, the dash and seats will be upholstered in premium leather. I also expect the automaker to update the current model’s infotainment system with some semi autonomous driving technologies as hinted by the radars on the prototype’s windscreen.

Due to the expanded dimensions, the model will have a slightly better legroom and cargo space compared to the outgoing model and other rival models in the segment.

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz A-Class prototype that we saw testing was under heavy camouflage. However, from the mule we can predict that the model will carry many changes compared to the current model. The front fascia will feature a refined radiator grille and a more aggressive bumper. Flanking the grille will be LED headlights housed in new clusters. For improved illumination in dimly lit terrains, the model will feature LED DRLs.

The sides are likely to feature a black trim on the mirrors and door handles. The mirrors will be integrated with new turn signals. The side profile will also wear creases that are more aggressive and a more aggressive design for the wheels. At the rear, the small hatch will feature LED taillights and a modified rear bumper. The rear also looks sharper due to the new roof spoiler.

The luxurious small hatch will be motivated by either a gasoline or a petrol engine. The petrol unit is a 1.6 L 4-cylinder mill good for 122 hp. This engine powers the hatch to 62 mph from standstill in 8.1 seconds and has a top speed of 118 mph (190 km/h).

The diesel engine, on the other hand is a 2.2 L, mill rated at 136 hp in the current model. With the diesel mill, the hatch hits 62 mph from standstill in a slower 9.3 seconds and has a top speed of 130 mph (210 km/h).  The performance-oriented AMG 4Matic will be powered by an upgraded engine capable of over 400 horses.
