Thanks to paultan.org, we can now see clearly how the car will look like. Spotted here in sedan (a.k.a CLA) and hatchback form, the cars here are painted in a shade of orange that are meant for crash testing.
Using the revised Modular Front Architecture (MFA) chassis, the new car looks slightly larger than before and will have an interior that will mimic a smaller E-Class. Large screens for the instrument display and infotainment will be likely to feature.
Engines wise, the car compact executive will likely make use of a new range of four-cylinder petrol engines. It remains to be seen whether the new engines will be paired with a new torque converter automatic gearbox or the dual-clutch transmission used currently.
