A few days ago, Mercedes-Benz revealed the all-new A-Class sedan although, at the time, details were scarce and photos were lacking. Now, the German automaker has rectified that by showing off its full specs, as well as a view of the rest of the car and its interior.

The A-Class sedan features the same front fascia as the hatchback. It has slim, upswept headlights and hexagonal grill, which is also remeniscent of the D-segment four-door coupe, the CLS. Aiding aerodynamics at the front are the tapered bumper corners, along with air intakes which are designed to channel air around the sedan.

It has the same wheelbase as the A-Class hatchback but that's where the similarities end. From the B-pillar and back, it's a whole different car. There's a more formal roof line and the sedan gets unique rear doors. The rear quarter panel meanwhile droops downwards, similar to the C-Class sedan. Despite that, Mercedes-Benz still claims the sedan is more aerodynamic than the hatchback which has a drag coefficient of 0.25.

For the first time, there's a view of the rear and it gets a unique styling treatment. The tail lights are totally different from the hatch. It features a wide, wraparound design with a Y-shaped LED signature. Also, the trunklid sees an integrated lip spoiler, a design touch which, Mercedes-Benz says, helped them achieved good aerodynamics. Lastly, the rounded bumper integrates the rear reflectors jst below the tail lights. A long wheelbase model will soon follow for the Chinese market.

Inside, the design is largely similar to the A-Class hatchback but the sedan gets more luxurious touches whereas the hatch gets a sportier look. The dash design still incorporates a wraparound design with a 'floating' infotainment screen. A fully digital instrument cluster is also available. There are some retro styling cues to be found in the sedan. The flat top of the dash is similar to Mercedes-Benzes of the 60's while the rounded air-conditioning vents are a page off the iconic W123 body.
