In particular driving scenarios, it is able to drive semi-autonomously for the very first time, and MULTIBEAM LED headlamps are available on demand.

The exterior of the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class represents sportiness, dynamism and feeling. The progressive front style with a low bonnet, flat LED headlamps with chrome components and torch-like daytime driving lights guarantees a mentally appealing and attractive appearance. The striking radiator grille with Mercedes star, whose shape opens out towards the base as a reinterpretation of its predecessor, features pins in a diamond look and a main silver louvre to highlight the sportiness of this model. The popular air inlets in the lower location of the bumper echo the silhouette 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 brand-new A-Class and make it sit more directly on the roadway.
2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Interior
The interior of the new A-Class is totally redefined with its contemporary, avant-garde look. Mercedes-Benz has actually taken a completely new technique, changing the compact class from the inside with a new feeling of spaciousness. The distinct interior architecture is shaped in specific by the avant-garde style of the dashboard: For the first time a cowl above the cockpit has actually been entirely ignored. As a result, the wing-shaped main body of the control panel extends from one front door to the other without any visual discontinuity. The Widescreen screen is totally free-standing. The air vents in a stylish turbine-look are another highlight.
The interior architecture and the control & screen systems of the new A-Class are a progressive USP in this sector. The control panel is divided into 2 three-dimensional, horizontal sections: the lower area is visually separated from the primary body of the dashboard by a “trench”, and it appears to drift in front of the control panel. The optional ambient lighting improves this impact, emphasizing the free-floating impression of the substructure.

2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Features
Speaking of infotainment, Mercedes-Benz is introducing a brand-new system with the A-Class. MBUX, which is brief for Mercedes-Benz User Experience but sounds like a bad frequent-flier program, attempts to attend to all the issues with its previous Comand system in one go, and it actually accomplishes that.
Touch-based input has made its method to the infotainment screen, so purchasers need not rely solely on the hit-or-miss touchpad on the center console. There’s likewise a brand-new digital assistant that works likewise to Cortana or Alexa– just say “Hey, Mercedes” followed by your demand, and the system will utilize its natural language processing to find out exactly what you desire and make it happen.
MBUX also brings brand-new linked features. Vehicle-to-X interaction capabilities allow the system to receive messages about bad roads or emergency vehicles driving past. More conventional services are included, too, like vehicle area, local gas rates 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 a step in the ideal instructions no matter what– Comand went a little heavy on the menus, while MBUX attempts to make things a bit more simple.
