2018 Mercedes-Benz A-Class interior revealed

  The upcoming 2018 Mercedes-Benz A-Class has had its insides revealed and detailed this week, during a special event held in Germany.

Entry-level models will get a dual-7.0-inch setup as standard, while mid-to high-grade variants will either get one 7.0-inch and one 10.25-inch screen or dual-10.25-inch displays.

This literally places the large widescreen cockpit with its bonded glass technology in the forefront.there is no longer a display in the A/C control panel, as the visual representation is exclusively via the central display.
There’s also new turbine-shaped fans taken straight from the E-Class, while the new steering wheel design borrows heavily from the S-Class flagship.
