The new Mercedes A-Class took a radical departure from the original model with its sleek and sporty looking lines, and will be on sale in the U.S. sometime in 2014.

A redesigned interior complements the new exterior look with an iPad like center console, and features such as downloadable iPhone apps that can be controlled through the Mercedes’ integrated infotainment system.

Three four-cylinder gasoline engines will be available on the car, offering 122 hp, 156 hp and 211 hp. Sitting on the MFA platform, the A-Class will also receive a GT mpv style variant and possibly a small crossover style option.

Although it was not confirmed for America at first, the A-Class will come in 2014, and offer some competition for other small luxury vehicles.

I don't think it'd be wise to fit the AMG 6.3 into a front-wheel drive setup... :eek:

... but on the looks front it does impress!

Horse Crap.... for MB USA.... as usual..

Understand, MB USA has built on stupid rich people who want to buy status.
The DO NOT CARE about us who are gear heads,
in fact I just took my 210 to Beverly Hills MB and they just wanted to f*** me and get me out the door.
They make ther money selling cars and unneed service at inflated prices.
As long as that works for them they will not change. They will not bring the full fleet to the USA, EVER,,,,

I now by my cars from a regular dealer in Germany then pay the 1200 us ti ship them back.

Why should I give an american dealer 30,000 extra just to kiss me and tell me how nice I look in tha mb I don't want.

I will write a check today for 2 B cars, but it aint happenin folks.

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 ?

I can't find any info anywhere else online...

Google found the following

See the link in the first post,

here is another link

2013 Mercedes A-Class hits showrooms with extensive accessories

and another Google hit

Mercedes-Benz A-class


Then A sub article taken from the above link that addresses the AMG question

For the A class SUV question that hasn't been asked yet

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

A-Class = ponitac sunfire with a body kit.
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.
