Mercedes-Benz dropped its mini MPV design for the A-Class when the current generation was launched in 2012, adopting a sportier hatchback design aimed to appeal to the younger crowd.
Automotive tipster Ferd posted this lone shot of the next-generation Mercedes-Benz A-Class, tipped to arrive some time in 2018.
We understood that the upcoming A-Class's design will be evolutionary instead of revolutionary. Expect the outgoing model's familiar outlook to carry over, albeit modified to suit the company's current design language.
Elsewhere, powertrain options could mirror the outgoing range of turbocharged inline-fours coupled with dual-clutch automatics.
As before, the company is probably going to introduce a hotter AMG version of the A-Class (and other compact models), likely with up to 400 horsepower.
