Mercedes is working on finalizing its A-Class makeover, although styling isn’t expected to change much from the current model. The updated design will transform the entire A-Class lineup, including the sedan. A new batch of spy photos captured the sedan tests in Germany, and it wears camouflage that covers the front fairing and parts of the rear.
The A-Class sedan is expected to receive the same styling updates as the other A-Class body styles, although the camouflage on the front of this test vehicle feels like it has a less bumper. aggressive than the tailgate. However, it could be a cover-up trick. The A-Class sedan will receive tweaked front styling, including a new mesh for the grille and a grille emblem that appears to house driver assist sensors. Mercedes will also change the styling of the headlights and taillights as well as the rear bumper.
It’s unclear what Mercedes has in store for the powertrains, although there are plenty of rumors. Some say a PHEV variant is expected in the United States, while others suggest the model could get a new four-cylinder from Geely as well. There are also rumors that Mercedes will replace the model’s 1.5-liter engine with a larger 2.0-liter unit, but we won’t know until Mercedes confirms the details. The sedan is also expected to get powerful AMG variants.
Inside, the car is expected to receive an updated infotainment system, although Mercedes is unlikely to make any other significant changes. The current A-Class has arrived for the 2019 model year, so the reveal of the updated model shouldn’t be too far away. Mercedes hasn’t set a reveal date, although we wouldn’t be surprised if that happens next year before the redesigned model goes on sale for 2023. However, Mercedes might surprise us by presenting it before the end of the season. the year.
