2018 Mercedes-Benz A-Class interior revealed

6

Mercedes-Benz has revealed the interior of the new A-Class, which will launch in 2018.

The manufacturer says the coming A‑Class will completely redefine modern luxury in the interior.

"The new A-Class embodies the next stage in our design philosophy of sensual purity, and has the potential to usher in a new design era," says Gorden Wagener, chief design Officer Daimler AG. "The interior presents modern luxury at a level previously unattainable in this class, and transports the user interface into the digital age."

The interior architecture and the control and display systems of the new A-Class will be unique in this segment.

The standard widescreen cockpit is completely free-standing, and for the first time there are absolutely no cowls above the instruments.

The A-Class also takes its lead from the luxury Mercedes-Benz models where many other details are concerned. The multifunctional steering wheel comes from the S-Class, for example. The front seats likewise have comfort features available from higher segments, including seat climate control, massage function and multicontour seat.

The interior has a greatly enhanced feeling of spaciousness, better all-round visibility and more space. Utility value is increased by more shoulder-room (front +9 mm, rear +22 mm), elbow-room (front +35 mm, rear +36 mm) and headroom (front +7 mm, rear +8 mm).

Easier access to the rear seats is another plus point of the new A-Class. The luggage compartment behind the rear seats is more suitable for family and recreational use, and has a capacity of 370 litres – 29 litres more than the preceding model.

All-round visibility has also been improved by around 10%.
