A true Mercedes. And yet so very different. The A-Class will surprise you with its fresh, sporty design that blends emotive appeal with individualistic character and strikes a completely new note in the compact vehicle segment.
The pronounced arrow-shaped front section and expressive radiator grille give the A-Class both an air of self-confidence and a decidedly energetic look. The flanks, with two striking structural lines, and the powerfully muscular rear wings give a feeling of forwards thrust even when the car is at a standstill.
The coupé-like side line with its curved roof, beltline rising towards the rear and long, narrow, glazed area emphasises the sporty appearance of the A-Class. The B-pillar is covered by the "frame under glass" design of the door.
The cockpit combines a sporty ambience with ergonomic styling and layout. The result: pure driving pleasure, with the comfort so typical of Mercedes-Benz. Various design and equipment lines as well as design packages (Exclusive package and AMG Exclusive package) allow you to individualise your interior to lend it a stylish, urban, sporty or exclusive note.
