Interior design of the new A-Class ‘modern luxury redefined’
The interior of the A-Class boasts a new feeling of spaciousness, along with an ‘avantgarde design’ of the dashboard.
In the year ahead of us, the new A-Class will replace a bestseller that has definitely contributed towards a more youthful brand image for Mercedes-Benz, with the average age of European drivers of this premium compact class model now being 13 years lower than the preceding series.
Now the revolution is set to continue; the coming A-Class is set to ‘redefine modern luxury’ in the interior whilst at the same time, giving it more utility value and ensuring that it is as youthful as ever but as grown-up as never before.
Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer Daimler AG, said;
"The new A-Class embodies the next stage in our design philosophy of sensual purity, and has the potential to usher in a new design era.
"The interior presents modern luxury at a level previously unattainable in this class, and transports the user interface into the digital age."
The interior architecture and the control & display systems of the new A-Class are a USP in this sector. The dashboard is divided into two three-dimensional, horizontal sections, and the lower section is visually separated from the main body of the dashboard by a seemingly "floating trench" in front of the dashboard.
The widescreen cockpit is free-standing - for the first time there are absolutely no cowls above the instruments. The sports-style air vents in a ‘turbine-look’ are another highlight.
The A-Class also takes its lead from the luxury Mercedes-Benz models where many other details are concerned. The multifunctional steering wheel comes from the S-Class, the front seats have comfort features available from cars in higher segments including seat climate control, massage function and multi-contour seat, trim elements are in a "wrap-around" design, and the choice of materials (for example open-pore wood) emphasises the progressive, high-quality positioning.
The New A-Class interior has better all-round visibility (by around ten percent) and more space. Utility value is increased by more shoulder-room, elbow-room and headroom and easier access to the rear seats is another plus point.
The luggage compartment behind the rear seats has a capacity of 370 litres, which is 29 litres more than the preceding model. Thanks to two-section rear lights, the loading aperture is also 20 cm wider than before, and the luggage compartment floor is 11.5 cm longer. When required, the rear seat backrest can be positioned more upright, to accommodate bulky items.
