Next-Gen Mercedes A-Class Hits the Nurburgring for Testing

Next-Gen Mercedes A-Class Hits the Nurburgring for Testing

Even though the A-Class is now known as a hatchback at the moment, and the new 2018 model for Europe is also set to follow that format, it seems the model planned for American dealers will be an all-new sedan variant.

Mercedes-Benz recently previewed the A-Class with the Concept A a few months ago. The concept sported a more traditional notchback design as opposed to the coupe-like shape of the CLA.

"It's a very nice-looking vehicle", said Ken Schnitzer, chairman of the Mercedes-Benz Dealer Board and owner of four Mercedes-Benz dealerships in Texas. "I'm sure it will be competitively priced".

The A-class sedan could start in the sub-$30,000 territory.

That said, given the relationship between the current A-, B- and CLA-Class models in Europe, the North American-spec A-Class will probably use the B and CLA's 2.0L turbo-four engine. Well, it seems the time is now coming as Mercedes has been preparing its dealers for the arrival of the all-new A-Class next year. That architecture underpins Mercedes' other small fwd vehicles, including the CLA and the GLA crossover. On the flip side, the AMG GT sedan could also debut with Mercedes' brawny 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8.

Body type is a major reason Mercedes declined to bring the A class, introduced 20 years ago, to the USA before now. It will slot below the CLA-Class sedan, which carries "coupe-like" styling and is now the smallest Mercedes on sale in the US.

IHS Markit analyst Stephanie Brinley told Automotive News that IHS also expects the A sedan in September 2018, saying, "Mercedes-Benz has been successful increasing overall sales through model line expansion, and this will be another effort in that direction".
