Wow I'm surprised how much tech they crammed into it. Would be interesting to see how they price it. Germans love to put everything under options.

This could very well end up in 50-60k territory fully loaded with tax, PDI and other bs added in.

Luxury brand are now making cars smaller and cheaper to entry the bigger market, so more people can afford it.

There is an A3 and Q3 which is the small version of A4 and Q5
There is a new X2...., a model in between X1 and X3
Now the A Class where they already have the B class and CLA.
Volvo, Infiniti are also doing the same.

IMO, some of those models doesn't make sense but it sure attract more buyers.
Yeah, other examples are the Jaguar E-Pace and the Cadillac XT4. Small and cheap SUVs

Is it just BMW that offer the first four years of service free of charge?

Or does MB also offer that?

Nope.
They only offer you a service package for Service A/ B / A for $999. Can be higher for other higher end MB.

When the CLA is re-designed, I can see them moving that base price upstream to $38-39,9K, maybe even $40k. That will put the lineup at $35,6K for the A, $39K for the CLA, and $44,7K for the C.

The A-class sedan, will "replace" the CLA as an entry-level sedan option, thereby allowing them to take the CLA a bit upstream.
Makes a lot of sense. I would love to see it at base of $30k. That would put MB in a position where it could really sell a lot of cars to the average buyer.

BUT would people have a change of perspective? Like this guy @AV-Fishing: "driving mercedes and being cheap.. great combination"

Especially if ppl just get the base A-class, it will look plain and cheap vs with packages added on.
Budget baller for the badge lol

Who cares what others think!

I lease the CLA when it came out because it looks so much better then 2014 C class. I might lease A class just because it looks 10x better then any other hatch at the moment. Waiting for AMG A though.

What's not to like, it looks better than most of the other MB line up though I'm still not digging the new MB front fascia / design but who am I to criticize the design when I am stuck driving a beater Civic?

The instrument clusters looks more advance than Audi's virtual cockpit.

I'm sure it will run on regular fuel. :)

From some angles the front reminds me of Acuras new design.

Same thought here as well, and the rear reminds me of the Mazda 3 hatch.

Up on MB's site.

Starts at $35k+ and about $2k more for 4matic.

This or the 2 Series? :)
