In certain driving situations, it has the ability to drive semi-autonomously for the very first time, and MULTIBEAM LED headlamps are offered on demand.

2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Exterior
The exterior of the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class means sportiness, dynamism and feeling. The progressive front style with a low bonnet, flat LED headlamps with chrome elements and torch-like daytime driving lights guarantees a mentally attractive and appealing appearance. The striking radiator grille with Mercedes star, whose silhouette opens out to the base as a reinterpretation of its predecessor, features pins in a diamond look and a main silver louvre to underline the sportiness of this model. The popular air inlets in the lower area 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 greatly than in the preceding model series, stressing the vibrant, upright front. The larger wheel arches for wheels from 16 to 19 inches stress the sportiness of the brand-new A-Class and make it sit more directly on the roadway.

The interior of the new A-Class is completely redefined with its modern-day, avant-garde appearance. Mercedes-Benz has taken a completely brand-new approach, revolutionising the compact class from the inside with a brand-new sensation of spaciousness. The unique interior architecture is shaped in particular by the avant-garde style of the control panel: For the first time a cowl above the cockpit has actually been entirely ignored. As a result, the wing-shaped primary body of the dashboard 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 brand-new A-Class are a progressive USP in this section. The dashboard is divided into two three-dimensional, horizontal areas: the lower section is aesthetically separated from the main body of the dashboard by a “trench”, and it appears to drift in front of the control panel. The optional ambient lighting improves this result, highlighting the free-floating impression of the substructure.

2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Features
Mentioning infotainment, Mercedes-Benz is presenting a new system with the A-Class. MBUX, which is short for Mercedes-Benz User Experience however seems like a bad frequent-flier program, tries to resolve all the problems with its previous Comand system in one go, and it in fact achieves that.
Touch-based input has actually made its method to the infotainment screen, so purchasers need not rely entirely on the hit-or-miss touchpad on the center console. There’s likewise a new digital assistant that works likewise to Cortana or Alexa– just state “Hey, Mercedes” followed by your demand, and the system will utilize its natural language processing to figure out what you desire and make it happen.
MBUX likewise brings new linked features. Vehicle-to-X interaction abilities enable the system to get messages about bad roads or emergency vehicles driving past. More conventional services are included, too, like vehicle location, local gas rates and over-the-air updates. We took it for a spin at CES and really enjoyed it, so we’re hoping that when it comes to the United States, we’ll continue to enjoy it. However, it’s not Comand, so it’s a step in the right instructions no matter what– Comand went a little heavy on the menus, while MBUX tries to make things a bit more uncomplicated.
