Mercedes A-Class First Drive



Quote:
The next generation of Mercedes-Benz compact is here and it has big shoes to fill.

A quarter of all Mercedes cars sold are compact cars and even though the outgoing vehicles certainly looked luxurious, they didn’t exude Mercedes quality. Fortunately, the brand has gone back to the drawing board and designed a car that’s far more deserving of the badge on the grille.

The new Mercedes A-Class not only rectifies many of the criticisms of the old compacts but also delivers a whole suite of innovative, exclusive technologies that will make the car stand out to buyers.

The hatchback looks good, with a sharply sculpted front end that graciously incorporates many of the cues from the recent CLS, a sedan that has long been the flagship style-oriented Mercedes. Canadian buyers will get standard LED lights and will get to choose from 17- or 18-inch wheels. In an effort to make the car more aerodynamic and efficient, the wheels feature two-tone spoke designs that help to reduce turbulent air going around the vehicle.

Look good, except for the brake light... The car look "sad" from the back.

What's up with the tech mania.....current GLA lacks tech, a guess that was a plus for me. This guy in the vid wants to chat with the car about opinion on BMW or Tesla and gets a "snarky" response? Why don't you focus on driving the vehicle instead of talking to it? Go buy a self driving car if you want to chat it up.

That's car driving lounge style... no wonder more accidents happen every day.

It's too bad we don't get MB and Audi hatchbacks in the USA. The quintessential VW GTI is the closest alternative.
