2019 Mercedes A-Class Spotted Testing in Spain. The test mules of the next Mercedes A-Class were recently spotted testing in Spain’s traffic. A spy video shows three heavily covered new A-Class, each sports slight differences with the other. Judging from the amount of camouflage we can conclude that Mercedes is going to give plenty of dramatic changes to the new A-Class.

The first noticeable changes in the prototypes are its lower and wider stance. Two out of the three test mules caught in the spy video are clearly much lower due to the AMG-tuned suspension the two cars use. Furthermore, if we take a look closer, it is hard to deny that the styling somehow reminds us to Mercedes 4-door coupe that is rumored to be called CLE-Class. The shape of the nose and the narrow headlights of the A-Class prototypes look similar with the coupe that is still under development now.
Well, those similarities are not surprising, though. Everybody knows anyway that all Mercedes sedan’s styling is pretty much the same in some elements. However, this is Mercedes we are talking about, and this Germany automaker is well-known for its exquisite and ever developing design.
Mercedes always surprise us with new radical designs. Just take a look at W205 for instance. The transformation of W204 to W205 was so beautiful and unexpected. Therefore, we definitely can’t wait to see how the final production version will look like.
It seems like there is a trend shift both inside and outside. In the cabin, while the central screen was usually attached to the dashboard in the older Mercedes, the newer cars will feature a central display that is integrated into the dashboard. The new design is simpler, neater and looks more luxurious. Meanwhile outside, the mirror will be put closer to the door metal and as a consequent wind whistle will be reduced.
If you want to watch the spy video, make sure you turn the volume on and hear the rumble of the engine. Judging from how it sounds as well as the large and chunky alloys the car ride on, it seems like we are looking at A40. Even though A40 is not as powerful as A45 but we know that it still rocks.
Furthermore, as for the hatchback, the wheelbase is growing by 10 inches. Thanks to the longer wheelbase, the upcoming A-Class hatchback will provide more legroom for the rear passengers, hence an unrivaled comfort that is what a Mercedes is all about.
Just like the current model, the trunk of the new 2018 A-Class hatchback will be very spacious. However, this time it will come with a wider trunk opening. As a result, the car will be more practical, and the owner can easily use it to load and unload bigger objects.
