The Mercedes-Benz A Class Is Heading To The U.S

Mercedes-Benz USA officials confirmed the car's arrival will be expected to premier around the end of the 2018 year to U.S Mercedes-Benz dealers. 

"It's a very nice-looking vehicle," said Ken Schnitzer, chairman of the Mercedes-Benz Dealer Board and owner of four Mercedes-Benz dealerships in Texas. The A-Class sedan, could start in the sub-$30,000 range, which is estimated by the current $32,700 base price for the CLA before shipping. Schnitzer claims that he is sure the vehicle will be competitively priced.

It's body type is a major reason why Mercedes decided to not bring the A-Class, which was introduced almost 20 years ago, to the United States. Being sold in its hatchback-like style, was not considered popular in the U.S. More automakers are presenting and selling the hatchback style automobile, with growing families and individuals who want the simplicity of the sedan but space of a crossover or SUV. Even with the U.S being more receptive to the hatchback style, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class will be a variant of a sedan, which will also be expected to be sold in other markets. 

Mercedes-Benz reconciles the conflicting aims of sport performance and enhanced comfort with the A-Class. Many have described the sedan's interior to be more "cutting edge, techy and trendy." With the style and foreseen price point, this new class vehicle will be very attractive to the millennial buyer. 

Small, compact and stylish is what the A-Class is bringing up against the C-Class and CLA vehicles, Mercedes-Benz already shares with the U.S. Mercedes-Benz USA has declined to comment on the A-Class sedan, but the brand has been hinting at the coming vehicle, which makes us even more eager to witness the goodness the U.S has been missing. Luxury vehicles are on the rise, with the model restructuring and even hybrid/electric options. The coupes aren't the only thing so small these days, so let us welcome the all-new A-Class that will hit U.S markets in 2018.
