2013 Mercedes-Benz A Class

The new Mercedes-Benz A Class just made it's international debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The model is miles apart from the current models. It has a more aerodynamic and more aggressive look which Mercedes calls "emotive design". The roof is also lower but has a sporty, high-quality interior.

It will compete against the BMW 1-Series, Audi A3 and Lexus CT 200h.

The car will come in several gasoline and diesel engine options, ranging from a 1.8-liter turbodiesel with 109 horsepower, to the 211-horsepower A250 with its turbocharged gasoline four-cylinder.

The car comes with adaptive headlights, speed limit assist, blind-spot warning, a reversing camera, collision-prevention, and "PRE-SAFE" occupant protection. PRE-SAFE means that in the case of an accident, the car is in the most suitable state possible for protecting the occupants closing windows, pulling the seatbelts tighter and more.

This will be the first A class Mercedes to go in sale in the US market.
