We won’t know the full details of the new A-Class until we see it debut live below, but based on the teasers and spy shots that we’ve seen, the German automaker seems to have taken a proactive approach in jazzing up the A-Class beyond its status as an entry-level model. The interior, in particular, looks less like a low-cost model and more like a premium model. The ambient lighting, floating widescreen, and touchpad control system on the center console are all signs of a well-provisioned interior. The new A-Class will also debut the automaker’s new User Experience multimedia system, which incorporates voice control, augmented reality, and artificial intelligence. When was the last time you saw an entry-level model this loaded in luxury and new-age tech?

Stay tuned for the live debut @ 1:00 EST Today.

Robert has been an auto enthusiast his entire life. He started working cars at a young age, learning the basics from his father in the home garage on the weekends. As time went on, Robert became more and more interested in cars and convinced his father to teach him how to drive when he was just 13 years old.
