The production-ready version of the Baby Benz has been rendered via patent drawings, and if you squint really hard, it kind of, sort of looks like the A-Class Concept shown at New York and Shanghai.

You won’t have to squint that hard, however, as most of the elements made it through production: the forward-leaning grille, the low greenhouse, and the pseudo-Nike-swoosh down its flanks. The overall look has been rendered less swoopy and more production-friendly, including the turbine-look wheels replaced for big, clunky split-spokes. The A-Class will make it to America in sedan and five-door models, while the rest of the world gets a three-door hatchback as well.
