So, do I understand correctly, that this is a 4 banger economy MB with high MPG ?
If yes, then seems interesting. What's the $ tag on these ?

The continued devaluation of Mercedes. BMW makes the junk 1 series, Mercedes must follow suit.

A-Class = ponitac sunfire with a body kit.

Mercedes = Reliability......

and another Google hit

your an idiot, the new A-Class is a huge improvement over old Gen B-Class and lightyears ahead of the old A-Class, Pontiac Sunfire has nothing to do with anything.

That looks really good! Where were you 7 years ago when we purchased a small 5 door car? Darn, can't get one now with the growing family.

The B class really turned me off. I have been able to drive a Canadian one here in the states. Lots of people from Alberta have them. I believe they are a very cheap Mercedes and look as ugly as can be. They don't handle well and are underpowered. A completely disposable car after ten years if you are lucky. Just my personal opinion. Please take no offense to it.

This A class looks promising. An AMG version would have quite a following!

God I hope not. I am a Mercedes dealer parts profesional, and all we need is another entry level car that still costs as much to maintain. The people that buy this will still not be able to afford it.
