Mercedes-Benz has issued its first official look at the interior of the upcoming 2018 A-Class ahead of the compact model’s full reveal.

You could easily be forgiven for thinking the first images come from one of the German prestige brand’s larger models, with a giant free-standing widescreen-display dominating the redesigned interior.

Like the larger and more expensive E-Class and S-Class before it the new display combines a digital instrument cluster and infotainment display giving the new A-class a more streamlined and premium design.

Prominent air vents styled with Mercedes-Benz' latest turbine design already seen in previews for the new CLS also appear in the A-Class and provide a striking visual presence.

The new A-Class will also benefit from the multi-function steering wheel from the current S-Class and seats that incorporate more comfort features like massage and climate control functions.

Technical features of the new interior include ambient LED lighting which moves from 12 colour option to 64 available shades of illumination, while the dual displays can be configured with either two 7.0-inch screens, two 10.25-inch displays, or one of each.

Mercedes has also made an effort to increase interior space in its littlest hatch, with rear shoulder room extended by 22mm and head room by 8mm.

Boot space has been increased by 29 litres to total of 370 litres, but thanks to new 'two-section' rear lights, the boot opening has been increased by 200mm to assist loading of bulkier items.

Other storage spaces in the cabin have also been specifically configured to accept the latest generation smartphones with bigger console storage, and front door pockets that can carry bottles up to 1.5 litres or magazines up to A4 size.

Expect other compact Mercedes-Benz models like the CLA and GLA to move to the more premium looking new design when their own new models appear.
