The first-ever Mercedes A-Class sedan is coming to Europe and the US in 2018 and we have the pictures to prove it. Wether this will also replace the current CLA or co-exist with the four-door coupe remains to be seen.
Like its hatchback and CLA brother, the A-Class sedan gets a sleek and sporty design. The new 5-door Mercedes A-Class has already been photographed in numerous capacities. Even the Mercedes-AMG A 45 has already been seen recently. But not the sedan. Until now.
It is already clear from seeing the test cars that the smallest Benz will look sportier than the current generation. The deep folds and the somewhat pushed posture make room for a tighter and stretched appearance. The Mercedes A-Class sedan, unexpectedly, does not constitute an exception.
Of course, here we simply see the A-Class sedan version, which is even more in line with the Concept A Sedan. In the form of this concept car we already got a very clear look at the design of the new Mercedes-Benz. Despite the camouflage, it is clear that we do not have to expect any major design surprises.
The new Mercedes-Benz compact models are built on a brand new platform. This provides the basis for the front-wheel drive future A-Class, CLA Class (and Shooting Brake), the new B-Class and the GLA Class. There are more models that will use it, but whether it will be a compact crossover (GLB) or another new A-Class derivative is not yet clear. Next year, the new A-Class sedan will in any case make its debut.
