The progressive front style with a low bonnet, flat LED headlamps with chrome aspects and torch-like daytime driving lights ensures an emotionally enticing and appealing look. The striking radiator grille with Mercedes star, whose shape opens out to the base as a reinterpretation of its predecessor, features pins in a diamond appearance and a central silver louvre to highlight the sportiness of this model. The prominent air inlets in the lower area of the bumper echo the shape of the radiator grille.
The vehicle is visually extended by the longer wheelbase and character line along the side. The bonnet slopes down more heavily than in the preceding model series, emphasising the dynamic, upright front. The bigger wheel arches for wheels from 16 to 19 inches emphasise the sportiness of the new A-Class and make it sit more directly on the road.

Mercedes-Benz has taken an entirely new method, changing the compact class from the inside with a new sensation of spaciousness. The special interior architecture is shaped in particular by the avant-garde style of the dashboard: For the first time a cowl above the cockpit has been completely done without. As an outcome, the wing-shaped main body of the dashboard extends from one front door to the other with no visual discontinuity. The Widescreen display screen is totally free-standing. The air vents in a sporty turbine-look are another highlight.
The interior architecture and the control & display screen systems of the new A-Class are a progressive USP in this sector. The control panel is divided into two three-dimensional, horizontal sections: the lower section is visually separated from the main body of the control panel by a “trench”, and it appears to drift in front of the dashboard. The optional ambient lighting improves this result, accentuating the free-floating impression of the base.

2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Features
Speaking of infotainment, Mercedes-Benz is presenting a brand-new system with the A-Class. MBUX, which is short for Mercedes-Benz User Experience but sounds like a bad frequent-flier program, tries to resolve all the problems with its previous Comand system in one go, and it really accomplishes that.
Touch-based input has made its method to the infotainment screen, so purchasers need not rely exclusively on the hit-or-miss touchpad on the center console. There’s likewise a new digital assistant that works likewise to Cortana or Alexa– simply say “Hey, Mercedes” followed by your demand, and the system will utilize its natural language processing to find out what you desire and make it occur.
MBUX likewise brings new linked features. Vehicle-to-X communication abilities allow the system to get messages about bad roads or emergency vehicles driving past. More standard services are included, too, like vehicle place, regional gas prices and over-the-air updates. We took it for a spin at CES and truly enjoyed it, so we’re hoping that when it comes to the United States, we’ll continue to enjoy it. Then again, it’s not Comand, so it’s an action in the best direction no matter what– Comand went a little heavy on the menus, while MBUX tries to make things a bit more simple.
