Mercedes-Benz Concept A-Class

By luanpa in | April 7, 2011 | (2) Comments

The Mercedes-Benz Concept A-Class is a stylized version of the upcoming two-door family vehicle, it looks like Mercedes-Benz Concept B-class, but might show the direction the front-wheel drive platform is headed-one that will appeal to a more youthful and enthusiastic buyer.

Mercedes is relying on the fresh design with its more technical highlights, include a new, turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, a dual clutch transmission and a radar-based collision warning system with adaptive Brake Assist. As part of a major shift, the A-class also adopts the heavily sculptured surfacing treatment and other elements seen on a batch of recent Mercedes concepts.

The exterior features the combination of defined edges and free interplay with the body surfaces. The front end of the Concept A-Class is a real eye-catcher. The side view is structured by three prominent lines.  A very special effect is created by the lights of the Concept A-Class, as the innovative full-LED high-performance headlamps repeat the starry sky motif with numerous lighting points.

Mercedes-Benz Concept A-Class will be equited with a 2.0-liter variant of Mercedes’ four-cylinder M270 gasoline engine. It’s modified to sit transversely in the engine bay, as opposed to the longitudinal mounting of other Mercedes models. The turbocharged unit is claimed to deliver 210 hp–the same power rating as European versions of the turbocharged 2.0-liter Volkswagen Golf GTi.

This concept wil be debut at the 2011 New York Auto Show. Mercedes is also bringing the Concept A to Auto Shangai 2011. Be sure to click past the jump for the full press release.

    This new A Class concept is way far away from actual production……the pictures look too un-realistic

  2. …Mercedes-Benz A-Class Concept Click above for high-res image gallery..Nearly four years ago we heard rumors that was considering . The German automaker is prepping an all-new M270 and were now able to get some insight into what it will look like courtesy of the Concept A…The Mercedes-Benz Concept A is a stylized version of the upcoming 2012 A-Class. Though most of the swoopy lines seen above are concept-cool we expect the production A-Class to to share lots of design notes with the Concept A.
