Mercedes teases the new A-Class concept

Mercedes is all set to preview its next-generation A-Class range later this month at the Shanghai Auto show. Built on a all-new MFA platform which has strut front suspension and a multi-link rear axle.

The new 2012 A-Class has several design cues from the F800 Style concept which debuted at the 2010 Geneva motor show.

The car will be powered by petrol and diesel engines with dual-clutch gearbox. The concept car will also feature Driver assistance technology, with a radar-based collision warning system linked to adaptive Brake Assist.

The new A-Class will get plastics, trim and switchgear from the C-class with superior interior quality.
