Next Mercedes-Benz A-class starts shedding its camouflage


While its AMG A45 sibling has been spotted on numerous occasions during past months, new spy shots of the standard Mercedes-Benz A-class have emerged ahead of its reported world debut at the Geneva Motor Show next year.

Although still sporting significant amounts of black disguise, the latest snaps by Britain's Auto Express provides the clearest pictures yet of the internally designated W177, with the biggest departure from the current W176 being a noticeable gain in length, slimmer headlights and the new corporate Mercedes-Benz grille.

One of the models to use Benz's MFA2 architecture along with the Concept A sedan and GLB crossover/SUV, the new A-class will reportedly also feature a interior similar to that of the E-class, and in due course spawn a second iteration of the GLA.

Aside from the AMG, the A-class will come powered by a range of heavily revised petrol and diesel engines displacing from 1.6 to 2.0-litres, as well as a plug-in hybrid model under Mercedes-Benz's EQ Power designation. A six-speed manual will more than likely be standard on lower spec models, while the majority of A-class' will employ either the familiar 7G-Tronic or new 9G-Tronic automatic gearbox.
