The company will release a new compact car.
Mercedes-Benz plans to expand its lineup of compact cars. Perhaps this will be the standard sedan version of the A-Class and crossover GLB.
In the line of compact cars Mercedes-Benz now has six models. This is the newest hatchback A-Class MPV B-Class, CLA four-door coupe, five-door CLA Shooting Brake, and GLA crossover, as well as an extended sedan A-Class, which last month debuted at the motor show in Beijing.
In a press release Mercedes-Benz States that the family of compact cars will be expanded to eight models. Unfortunately, the Germans did not specify which two new models will be added to the collection. We can only speculate.
First of all, it can be a standard sedan version of the A-Class with extended wheelbase designed for China. In Europe, this compact luxury sedan with the standard wheelbase can find a lot of buyers.
Furthermore, it is known that Mercedes is planning to create a new crossover GLA. It will have a small, but athletic body design, luxury finishes and spacious enough salon. Thus the family of compact Mercedes-Benz vehicles will grow to eight models.
But Mercedes-Benz might find that one version of a sedan A-Class enough. What if the model appears in the family of compact cars this brand? Maybe the Roadster SLA? Or two-door coupe? Maybe it will be universal, which will replace the CLA Shooting Brake? As they say, wait and see.
