Mercedes-Benz A class

Segment: Subcompact

Drivetrain option(s): RWD

Powertrain(s): Gasoline


New 2018

Mercedes-Benz will add the premium A-class subcompact sedan to U.S. showrooms in 2018. And now that the automaker has begun giving U.S. retailers a look at the car, product plans and details are coming into sharper focus. The car will have a 2.0-liter, turbo four-cylinder engine mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Dealers who have seen the car believe Mercedes will make it feature-rich instead of decontenting it. Pricing has not been announced. But some dealers now doubt the early speculation that the A class might debut with a sticker of less than $30,000. One dealer predicted that feature content will bring the price up to $32,000-$33,000. That would still position it as the luxury brand's entry product. The A-class sedan is expected to be built at a Nissan-Daimler joint venture assembly plant under construction in Mexico.
