We won’t need to wait long to see all-new 2018 Mercedes-Benz A-Class, as the model is set to celebrate its global premiere in Amsterdam on February 2, 2018. This teaser image is our first look at the finished product, where we see some radical design changes.

For starters, the headlights appear to be inspired by the latest CLS, appearing a lot sharper than before. Like the CLS, tilted L-shaped daytime running lights within the headlights help to further accentuate the angular approach.

The car on show here is likely fitted with the AMG Line trim package, with a lower apron that resembles what you see on a W213 E-Class. Elsewhere, the grille doesn’t appear to sport chrome pins, and we only see thin slats beside the Mercedes-Benz logo. Based on previous spyshots, the new A-Class’ rear will feature wider and slimmer two-piece headlights.

There’s no mystery when it comes to the interior though, with Mercedes-Benz providing plenty of photos and details about the A-Class’ cabin. Not only will there be a significant upgrade in terms of design. Technology and interface – it will be roomier too. Mercedes-Benz’s next-generation front wheel drive platform, reportedly called Modular Front Architecture 2 (MFA2), is likely the culprit for this.

The standard array of petrol and diesel engines from the brand will likely be featured on the new A-Class, although there have been rumours of a plug-in hybrid version. We’ll have to wait just a few more days before all is revealed, but do you like what you see so far?
