One of our favorite concepts at the 2011 New York Auto Show had to be the new Mercedes-Benz Concept A-Class. As fans of small cars with lots of horses and sleek design, there is nothing we don’t like about the Concept A.
So it bought us much excitement when we learned that the production version of the Mercedes-Benz Concept A will be coming to the United States as early as next year (we have Mercedes on video saying that – stay tuned for that).

The Mercedes-Benz Concept A will come to the U.S. in four different body styles including a 5-door hatch, a 3-door hatch, a sedan and a crossover. The next-generation Mercedes-Benz A-Class-based crossover is expected to arrive first. All we know is we can’t wait for the 3-door hatch and really hope that previous reports of an AMG version are true.
Refresher: Power for the Mercedes-Benz Concept A comes from a transversely mounted 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged, direct-injected engine that produces 210-hp with a maximum torque of 229 lb-ft. The engine in the Concept A is mated to a dual-clutch transmission, although Mercedes-Benz won’t say how many gears we have to shift with here.
