Here’s a better view of the next-generation 2018 Mercedes-Benz A Class, which we showed to you last week testing in Germany. Two units of the W176 replacement were spotted in this set of images, and while the level of camouflage remains the same as what we saw, there are more details on display.

Compared to the steel wheeled mules in the previous set, the two units you see here are rolling on alloy wheels in two different star spoke designs. While the rims you see here might appear in the 2018 A-Class catalogue, they could have also been randomly picked for testing.

We see two units from a good number of angles. While the black car (with black camo) comes with the same bumpers as seen in the previous set, the grey car (with white camo) sports different bumpers and fancier side skirts. The front bumper has larger “side intake” cutouts while the rear item gets vertical “vents” on the edges – this look is for the Sport and AMG Line.

The recipe is the same, but the next A-Class is expected to have a longer wheelbase and a wider hatch opening, the latter in conjunction with slimmer and split tail lamp clusters. For a good idea on how the new hatchback looks like beneath the camo, check out Merc’s Concept A Sedan from earlier this year. The new A will also get a throughly revised interior with digital meter panels – see the dashboard pics below.
