Mercedes A Class Concept Video Transcript
-Ever seen the Mercedes A class? Yeah, this dorky little thing. Well, forget that and check this. The new A class concept. It just went from being about as sexy as an elevator to being a pulse elevator. Lots of tasty sculpting around it's sort of mini shooting brake body style, but none of it so outrageous that you can't squint and see a production car here. Well, except for this highly unlikely interior with all its LED-illuminated pods and such. Those vent nozzles turn red when heating and blue when cooling. And of course, Mercedes is envisioning streaming radio, Facebook, and Twitter through a docked smartphone, which are pretty much becoming must-have technologies right now. Under a hood, they see a turbo direct-injected 2-L four that will put 210 horsepower into a 7-speed dual-clutch automated manual to the front wheels. Also available, things like radar-adaptive cruise, lots of luxury. This is likely a real answer to BMW's 1 series and Audi's 3 in a world where small and premium no longer seem like odd bedfellows.
