New A-Class for reveal on Friday

This is a teaser for a new generation Mercedes-Benz A-Class due to be revealed on FRiday, writes Brian Byrne.

The formats of the new car will include the familiar hatchback and a new saloon style for some markets. The coupe CLA will also be available in the latest A-Class.

A development of the front-drive platform used by M-B for its compact cars has resulted in a lighter A-Class.

Changes to controls will include a touch-screen interface for the first time and it will have speech control for a number of functions.
