The BMW 1 series has a few months ago, another Update, specifically on the interior, and the topic of Infotainment focused. A similar focus also, Daimler is now, because the first official Teaser photos of the new Mercedes A-class of 2018 deal exclusively with the interior. So we get the first unfiltered impression of a compact-class Cockpit, the ago would have been unthinkable a few years ago: Analogue round instruments, one searches in vain, instead, the A-class shines with a highly modern Look that is reminiscent of the Widescreen cockpit of the larger Mercedes-Benz models.

The interior staged modern luxury on a in this class so far unattained level, and transferred to the User Interface in the digital age.”
