Revamp of Mercedes-Benz A-class in works

Mercedes-Benz is in the process of a complete reinvention of the Mercedes-Benz A-class design.

The revamp of their smallest offering comes on the back of  a successful 2016 which saw Mercedes-Benz overtake BMW in global luxury car sales, with twice the amount of growth.

Gone are the creases and mouldings on the side panels and in are curves and a contoured look.

Mercedes says the next-generation A-class will be sportier creating the curvier figure through shadows and lighting instead of metal edges.

The grille too will become more aggressive and predatory, elongated and a grate giving a toothy appearance.

But even we at Behind the Wheel aren’t privy to the exact dimensions and characteristics of the new model with Mercedes-Benz showing only a mock-up in a darkened room of the A-class at a recent presentation in Germany.

The public will have to wait to till next year to discover its new design.

Mercedes-Benz chief designer Gorden Wagener says they don’t to become repetitive and try keep things fresh.

“It’s our job to reinvent ourselves. Creases have had their day.”

“The A-class will be a very sporty, aggressive car, even as it’s pared back and pure.”
