China-focused variant surfaces online ahead of Beijing reveal
The all-new Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan has been outed in a single image online, ahead of its official reveal at the Beijing motor show later this week.
In terms of design, the A-Class Sedan looks largely identical to the related hatchback from the B-pillar forward, but features a traditional sedan roofline and boot at the rear.
Compared to the upcoming CLA, the three-box A-Class will have a less-sloping roofline for better headroom and passenger space, along with a more traditional sedan shape at the rear compared to the slinky proportions of the CLA. Expect the differences to be similar to those between the larger E-Class and CLS.
While official details will be revealed later this week, the A-Class Sedan should feature the same range of turbocharged small-capacity engines as the A-Class hatchback, though its Chinese focus may mean a limited availability of diesel options.
