Mercedes-Benz Showcases New A Class Interior

Although the car itself has yet to break cover, Mercedes-Benz has decided to show off the interior of its upcoming all-new A Class. The compact hatchback (and eventual sedan) are destined to take on a more premium approach than today’s A Class products; a point Mercedes is attempting to make with these interior photos.

Even a quick inspection of the new A Class interior will yield an obvious family resemblance to other recent Mercedes-Benz products. Namely, there’s a new three-spoke steering wheel borrowed from the revamped 2018 S Class; there’s also turbine-style HVAC vents borrowed from the E Class Coupe and teased CLS Class.

Need we also mention the massive display panel, which features two large LCD screens. This large design cue is forklifted straight from the S Class and new E Class, a sign the brand’s primary technology interface is going to become a centerpiece of interior design.

The large screen is indeed an intentional cue on Mercedes’ part. The German luxury brand is fully anticipating that the new A Class will attract younger, technology-oriented buyers to the three-pointed star. Mercedes has also said they anticipate the new A Class to move up-market versus today’s variants, a box checked with large screens.

Aiding in the premium feel is extensive use of LED accent lighting, another cue borrowed from the A Class’ higher-end siblings. Higher-end finishes and trim pieces are also expected inside this interior to help push the A Class into the same luxury league as the C, E and S Class models, just at a smaller scale.

The rest of the A Class lineup is expected to bow next March at the Geneva Motor Show. In the meantime, it’s probable we’ll see additional details on this car between now and reveal time.

    I guess we will actually get this A-Class in sedan form.


    Yep. This thing is spawning eight different variants.
