A redesigned interior complements the new exterior look with an iPad like center console, and features such as downloadable iPhone apps that can be controlled through the Mercedes’ integrated infotainment system.
Three four-cylinder gasoline engines will be available on the car, offering 122 hp, 156 hp and 211 hp – though it’s unlikely all will be available in the US. Those engines will be mated to either a 6-speed manual transmission or a new 7-speed dual clutch automatic. Sitting on the MFA platform, the A-Class will also receive a GT mpv-style variant and possibly a small crossover option.
Although it was not confirmed for America at first, the A-Class will come in 2014, and offer some competition for other small luxury vehicles.
