While many of us thought that the facelifted S-Class was going to be the only highlight at Mercedes-Benz’s booth at the upcoming Auto Shanghai 2017, the brand today released a teaser video of another vehicle it is going to reveal at the show – the Concept A Sedan.
Featuring many design cues that look like they were inspired by the GT Concept, the Concept A Sedan is dubbed as the “herald of a new generation” by Mercedes-Benz, as it previews what the next generation models from the brand could look like.
From what we can see, the concept features a more conventional notchback design to differentiate it from the current CLA Coupe.
Despite the new design philosophy, it is said that Mercedes’ next generation compact cars will ride on an updated version of the MFA front-wheel-drive platform found in the current cars.
The company said that the platform will come in two lengths, with the A-Class sedan likely to utilize the longer version.
No other details were revealed yet, but we since prototypes of the new A-Class hatchback have already been spotted testing in Europe, we expect the car to be launched either later this year or next year.
