Caught: Mercedes-Benz A-Class

Automakers go to great lengths to camoflaging upcoming vehicles and spy photographers do the same to capture images of those vehicles. But once in a blue moon, someone captures a upcoming vehicle sans camoflage.

In this case, it was being at the right place at the right time. A group of cyclists were out for a ride on Spanish island of Lanzarote, located in the Canary Islands. They had a video camera running along their ride and caught something very interesting. They caught the new Mercdes-Benz A-Class sans camoflage.

The new A-Class closely resembles the concept version shown at last year's Shanghai Motor Show, living up to the promise Mercedes-Benz's design director Gordon Wagener said to the press during the show.

The new A-Class makes its world debut next month at the Geneva Motor Show.

Wonder if the next c-class will go on a stretched version of this platform?

No, the C-class will remain RWD; the A- and B-class have always been FWD.

The new model looks pretty neat. Merc pretty much invented the premium small car, but with stylish new competition from Alfa and Citroen, it was time for them to step it up.

There is absolutely nothing "premium" about the original A-Class beyond the sticker hood ornament

I kind of like it, it's sufficiently distinctive. The colour and wheels suit it. As a small car, it has authoritay rare in the class.
