Geneva 2012 – Mercedes A-Class

After seeing it previously in Concept form we knew the A-Class was going to impress. Also it got leaked inadvertently with a Cyclist using a GoPro a couple of weeks back. The new A-Class is a totally new direction from the old version with its elk loving Smart car estate dynamics.

Taking the fight directly to the BMW 1-Series and new Audi A3 the A-Class is poised to do well because unlike the A3 you can tell it is actually a new car and unlike the BMW it does not seem to divide opinion as strongly regarding it’s aesthetics.

We also reckon with AMG having had some involvement in the development that we might be seeing a monster turned-up-to-eleven AMG version at the Paris show later this year.
