Marking a distinct departure from the current A-Class, Mercedes has unveiled a new second-generation of the car, transforming it from an urban runabout MPV to a stylish and sporty hatchback. And itís not just the overall shape of the vehicle either, but its specific styling cues, moving away from a minimalist approach to a design thatís proud to wear the Mercedes grille and tri-pointed star. |
Revealed in a detailed set of photos released by the manufacturer, Mercedes will present the car at the Shanghai and New York Auto Shows in just a few weeks time. The New York showing suggests this car will no longer be a stranger to U.S. soil.
Powering that car is a turbocharged and direct-injection 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine making 210-hp and mated to a new dual-clutch transmission. Transversely mounted, this indicates the car is a front-drive model Ė although Mercedes doesnít expressly say so.
Other highlights on the car include a radar-based collision warning with Mercedesí Adaptive Brake Assist that warns the driver if a collision is about to occur and even primes the brakes to deliver full braking power when required.
As for the interior, it features a a fully-integrated smartphone, with the carís many systems appearing on the phone screen and controllable through the knobs and buttons of the car.
