German luxury car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz is expected to showcase the A-Class sedan at the upcoming Auto Expo.
The new sedan is likely to be launched later this year and will be slotted under the CLA four-door coupe.
The company is expected to introduce the sedan as an alternative to the recently discontinued A-Class hatchback.
It is also expected to be offered with BSVI-compliant, two-litre, petrol and diesel engine options. The sedan should also share its powertrain and electronic components with the upcoming GLA SUV as well as the CLA Coupe.
Mercedes-Benz has equipped the sedan’s interiors with a dual-screen layout. It gets a panoramic touchscreen unit that floats over the dashboard. It is divided into a digital driver’s instrument cluster and the infotainment system. It also gets turbine-shaped air vents that sit below the screen. The company is also expected to offer the A-class sedan with its latest MBUX infotainment system.
The A-Class sedan is expected to have a base price above Rs 35 lakh (ex-showroom) in India and will be pitted against the Skoda Superb, Honda Accord, and the Audi A3 sedan, among others.
It will be brought to India via the CKD route and will be assembled in the company’s assembly facility at Chakan, Maharashtra.
