This all-new and all-beautiful Mercedes-Benz Concept A-Class is a stunner which features an expressive and athletic design, technical highlights that include a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine, a dual clutch transmission and even a radar-based collision warning system with adaptive Brake Assist (which lowers the risk of rear-end collisions).
The Concept A-Class is equipped with a new two litre engine, developing 210hp and the BlueEFFICIENCY engine is mated to the new Mercedes-Benz dual clutch transmission.
The aggressive appearance with its long hood, low silhouette and slim side windows, is given depth by the interplay between lines and surfaces. The exterior features the combination of defined edges and free interplay and the front structural edge above the front fender forms a dropping line, while the prominent shoulder muscle above the rear axle underlines the car’s coupe-like character. The headlights have the same innovative design with full-LED high-performance headlamps repeating the starry sky motif with numerous light points. The daytime running lamps consist of 90 optical fibres with aluminum sleeves which are arranged in a wing-shape within the headlamp.
In the interior the dashboard features a translucent, stretchable fabric lining – this enables the bionic, cellular structure of the dashboard to remain visible. The shape of the air vents in the dashboard is reminiscent of a jet aircraft and the prominent dials in the instrument cluster are in red and the centre console is designed as a modern flight control panel. A smartphone is also fully integrated inside with all functions shown in the display as applications, and can be operated using the rotary/push control. The visual presentation of the display screen elements is unique, with a deep, three-dimensional appearance created by laser-like magenta-coloured lines.
