Spy photographers have been working overtime, catching another round of Mercedes-Benz A-Class spy photos only a week after the very first photos of the hatchback emerged. This time however, the A-Class was seen sporting a bit less camo.
The Mercedes A-Class concept compared to the prototype has a much more inspiring design. The next generation A-Class design, based on the prototype, will be toned down and include a traditional Mercedes-Benz grille and slightly more understated tail lights.
The 2012 B-Class engine options will likely be shared with A-Class, so we can expect five petrols with 109 PS (80 kW / 108 hp) to 204 PS (150 kW / 201 hp) in addition to four diesels with 122 PS (90 kW / 120 hp) to 204 PS (150 kW / 201 hp).
For those of you that are AMG fans, Mercedes-Benz has confirmed that an AMG variant of the A-Class is in the making. WCF speculates that the model would be called the A25 and feature a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine with 325 PS (239 kW / 321 hp) to 355 PS (261 kW / 350 hp). And to make it more fun, there’s the possibility of a dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive.
We will keep you updated over the coming months as we learn more.
