Mercedes-Benz has revealed the front end of its new A-Class compact car ahead of its debut in early February.
Unlike the current A-Class, this new version will be offered in both sedan and hatchback variants. We’ll be receiving the sedan in North America, which is expected to be sold alongside the CLA rather than replace it. In a press release, the automaker said “the new Mercedes-Benz A‑Class retains its youthful and dynamic character, yet it is also more grown up and comfortable than ever. It completely redefines modern luxury in the compact class, and revolutionises interior design.”

The automaker has already shown off the compact sedan’s newly designed interior, which incorporates its new ‘MBUX’ (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) in-car multimedia system. The system comprises a large, widescreen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There’s also augmented reality technology with intelligent voice control, which can be activated by saying “Hey Mercedes,” similar to a Google Home device or Amazon Alexa.
Mercedes will pull the veil from the new A-Class in Amsterdam on February 2nd at 6:45 p.m CET, or 12:45 p.m. ET.
