Mercedes-Benz Previews A-Class Concept

A conceptual forerunner of the next-generation Mercedes-Benz A-Class compact, due in 2012, will be introduced concurrently at the 2011 New York and Shanghai auto shows.

Company executives previously have hinted that the next A-Class might come to the U.S., and the selection of Ny like a joint introductory venue with Shanghai supports that notion.

The exterior design of the Concept A-Class looks dramatically not the same as that of the present production model, which isn’t marketed in North America. The latter was designed originally with a unique “sandwich” platform that was engineered to accommodate a variety of drivetrains, including a pure electric system. The next-generation A-Class, as embodied within the concept, shifts to a more conventional transverse front-wheel-drive layout.

Powering the concept is really a four-cylinder gasoline engine in the automaker’s M270 BlueEfficiency family. The engine is really a 210-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline direct-injection unit, driving the leading wheels through a dual-clutch transmission.

The idea A-Class also includes a radar-based collision warning system providing you with visual and acoustic warnings towards the driver and is bundled with adaptive brake assist to reduce the risk of a rear-end collision.

In addition to LED headlamps and fiber-optic daytime running lamps, the idea adds a built-in smartphone, with functions displayed as 3D apps and operated by the car’s rotary/push controller.
