Remember when MB marketed the C230 hatchback as the entry level Benz? $26,000 can put you in a Mercedes. How well did that do?
On the other hand, Mercedes in Europe is a full range manufacture. They market entry level and fleet vehicles used by the police and taxi services. They make trucks and buses. I would love to have greater choice here in the states. Perhaps a utility version G320 CDI, or a Mercedes Vito. I think the key is even if they bring over smaller vehicles, they should still have legendary quality and engineering that serve to protect the marque.
