The company released a teaser image of its new A-Class Hatchback, that will be fully revealed next month. The revamped front shows off a bold, aggressive look. This car is built on the new MFA-2 platform, that uses a lot of aluminium and high-strength steel than the earlier platform.
The New A-Class is larger now, length has increased by 120mm and stands at 4,419mm, while width increases by 16mm to around 1,796mm. The wheelbase is longer by 30mm as well. The base 1.4-litre engine (codenamed M282) will power the car and will be sold in three states of tune – 110hp in the A 140, 136hp in the A 160 and 163hp in the A 180.
There’s also a 2.0-litre engine (codename M260) which will make 191hp in the A200 and 224hp in the A250. There’s also an A 35 4Matic model, which features a 48-volt electric architecture that comes with an electric boost function. This takes output to the tune of 306hp and 409Nm.
