The all-new Mercedes-Benz A-Class is aiming for sporty and functional as the luxury automaker looks to cultivate a more youthful audience.

The A-Class should fit the bill with an attractive, compact, high performance vehicle that is more than just a play toy.

The A 250 and A 220 CDI Sport models will have an AMG-developed front axle and sportier suspension set-up. There are also attractive AMG-designed 18-inch alloy wheels. The A Class will also be offered in ‘Urban’ and ‘Sport’ trims.

Expect the latest in electronic gadgetry with the new A-Class, such as iPhone integration and a radar-based collision warning system with adaptive Brake Assist.

Mercedes should have a hit with younger fans with the new A-Class. It’s an attractive and efficient car, yet packed with solid performance features that make it perfect for everything from driving to work to a trip to the grocery store.
