2012 Mercedes-Benz A-Class

By - March 7th, 2012

The 2012 A-Class debuting at this week’s Geneva Motor Show is Mercedes-Benz‘s latest entry into the younger, more sporty market that is currently dominated by brands with compact, but fun entry-level models. With modern, clean lines, the A-Class will be available with either a 1.6-liter turbocharged, 4-cylinder gas-burner with 122 horses under the hood or a 1.8-liter turbo-diesel with 109 horses harnessed with a new six-speed manual unit or a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Its exterior and accessories, however, demands its estimated base $40,000 price tag, namely with the first in its class radar-based collision warning system with adaptive brake assist and a sporty body kit with aggressive trim, a new grille, and beautiful rims. Check out more looks at Mercedes-Benz’s ambitious foray into the premium compact segment after the jump.


What's with the pictures. The front are different. One car has just one bar going through the merc logo while another has two? And one car has a red stripe on the front & back grill?
