The 2018 Mercedes-Benz A-Class rides on a new, modular front wheel drive platform, one that will be used for at least eight new upcoming models. This was confirmed by Gorden Wagener, chief design officer at Daimler, in a report by CarAdvice.

“I can assure you that all variants on this platform, there will be at least eight, will be stunning,” Wagener said. He noted the platform allowed for several elements – short front overhang, low front, large wheel sizes, dash-to-axle ratio and proportion – that are important for good design.

Wagener didn’t provide a list of models, but there is always room for speculation. The new A-Class Sedan is one of the confirmed models, along with a long-wheelbase version. Joining it will be the new CLA, GLA, GLB and B-Class. That’s six models, with two more to spare, and there are certainly a lot of possibilities.

So, make your educated guesses and try to list out what new models will be coming from Mercedes-Benz in the future. A new CLA Shooting Brake, perhaps? Or the production version of the EQ A?
