Back in 2013, Mercedes-Benz USA achieved historically high annual sale volumes with 312,534 Benz cars sold for the brand. But the brand is hoping to make history again in 2018 with its new A-Class vehicle. Although we don’t yet know everything about the A-Class release, the company has shared some exciting details. If you’re hoping to upgrade your Mercedes in the near future, here’s what we know so far.
The newest genuine Mercedes has a modern feel
If your Mercedes is a vintage model, you might be surprised to learn that the A-Class combines the classic with the cutting-edge. It has a dual-screen setup (available in three different modifications), ambient lighting, and a swanky interior. There will likely be many opportunities for high-tech upgrades as well, though this will certainly impact Mercedes prices for consumers looking to buy the A-Class.
It’ll finally be available in the States
Speaking of eager consumers, Americans will be happy to know that they’ll likely be able to go to their local Mercedes shop and arrange to purchase the new A-Class for themselves. Even though the A-Class model has been on the market for the last two decades, it’s never been available in the U.S. before, partially due to its compact size. Although this new release will reportedly be available in both a hatchback and sedan model, it’s probable that only the sedan will make it to the American market. Still, if you want more contemporary options for your Mercedes vehicle, your wish may very well be granted in 2018 or 2019.
It may be available in diesel and hybrid versions
The A-Class will retain its four-cylinder volume engines, which will boast 400 horsepower, at least. But there will also be a particularly exciting addition for those concerned about their carbon footprint. Mercedes will also release a plug-in hybrid version later in their A-Class production run, which will be the first of its kind for the model. Since details are still a bit sketchy, devotees will have to wait and see whether the hybrid will make its way over to the United States.
