Mumbai: Mercedes is once again geared to overtake its market competitors BMW and Audi, who were grabbing away all the market shares in the past. The company feels that the main reason behind this setback was the target audience of the brand. The tri star now shifts its focus to the youth and in the same line, it is coming up with new A class, loaded with the most hi-tech features that youngster would love flaunting in around.
The hatchback, 'A' class is a compact design, which is very compatible for Indian roads. The vehicle production has just rolled off in the Rastatt plant in Germany and the company says it's 'Game On'.
The new 'A' class is set to land in the market with a price of INR 16.7 lakhs. It may sound too much for a car of that size but, with the hi-tech features incorporated in the vehicle, it will shame any other car of the same category. The video attached here will surely convince you to pay the sum for the mini car. The 'A' Class is also an apparent competitor for Fiat 500.
