Mercedes-Benz Concept A-Class – Click above to watch the video after the jump

The current Mercedes-Benz A-Class might boast some innovative construction, but it isn't exactly the most striking design the German automaker has ever come up with. The new Concept A-Class, however, now that's another story. While the outgoing production A-Class takes on the likes of the Volkswagen Golf Plus and Opel Meriva, the new concept looks poised to take the fight to the BMW 1 Series, Lexus CT 200h and Audi A3.

Naturally, as a concept car, some of the flashier bits are bound to be lost on the road to eventual production, but overall the showcar emerges as a clear step in the right direction. But don't take our word for it – follow the jump to watch a trio of videos: two showing the A-Class Concept from all the angles in smooth silence, and a third with MB designer Mark Fetherston highlighting some of the finer points of the Concept A-Class. Thanks for the tip, John!

      I still don't know why Bangle got so much -ish for his Flame Surfacing. MB liked it so much they put it on this concept.

      I like it

      the headlights should make it to the real car as they are...very cool,
      if I have to pay the price for an M-B it should have these type of features standard while other makes show them in their concepts only.

      yes they'll cost an extra $30 buck to produce so what,
      at least you actually feel like you got something special which is what M-B should be

        Did BMW merge with Kia?

      Too bad a Subaru can't look like this.

      What's up with all the BMW flame surfacing? Is this a z4 hatch concept or something?

      do you guys prefer flat slabs, or creases ?

      Not an overly original design by any means, but this works! I like it. Quite a bit, actually.

      this is the first MB concept I've liked in quite awhile. I think it "ebbs and flows" really well.

      So BMW drops flame surfacing and Mercedes Benz picks it up?
      • 3 Years Ago
      Does anyone else see a bit of Citroen in the rear?
