Mercedes-Benz has uncovered its Concept A Sedan at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show.
Created to preview an expanded next-generation A-Class range that will include a sedan for the first time, the Concept A Sedan also gives us a hint of what to expect in terms of the new model’s styling.
Sporting the company’s new ‘Panamerican’ front grille flanked by a pair of triangular-shaped headlights with intricate innards and complete with purple illuminated elements at the front, and strong muscular fenders along the sides, the Concept is no doubt stylish.
Mercedes-Benz says the grid structure within the headlights has been coated in UV paint before being exposed to ultraviolet light to produce the purple glow.
As befitting its concept status, the car is equipped with slender door mirrors, flush mounted door handles, a floating B-pillar and huge 20-inch alloy wheels. At the back, the triangular taillights are a departure from the brand’s current styling and tapers towards the license plate housing.
No words yet on when the A-Class sedan will hit the market, but we expect it to arrive after the next-generation A-Class hatch in 2019.
