Mercedes A Class Concept




This is supposed to show us what the next A Class will look like.
Which is OK. But the interior seems pure concept to me. So, even though the exterior looks almost production ready, we might see quite a bit of changes before this hits dealers next year.

The US will finally have access to the A class with the next model. Although we might be getting the 4 door sedan version only.
Which will compete with the all new Audi A3 sedan.

Should be interesting...

It's an Astra coupe with Audi tail lights.

The original A and B class have great usable space because of their unique packaging (short hood, engine tilted to fit). This thing looks like it wouldn't fit a small dog in the back, never mind a teenager.

All of that 'flame surfacing' on the side looks like it was lifted directly from the previous BMW Z4 - Hmmm?

Otherwise... Pretty derivative of VW's current Scirocco (which itself is a copy of the 1992-1995 Honda Civic HB)

LoL your headline says next S class. Thought I'd let you know...

Really overdone, looks like they are trying to compete with Hyundai. Does not do anything for me.

re:Les
:-D I was just going to say the same. It's the new Astra OPC

The more I look at it, the more I like it. Especially when imagining the actual production version of this thing...

It makes the "new" Impreza look like 20 years old already....

This is absolutely stunning, Vince.

I'd be REALLY proud to park this in my garage.

This is the kind of drama I'm hoping Acura will bring out with its new sub-TSX, though not in this form. The back certainly looks a lot like an RDX or MDX.
