Mercedes A Class L sedan
This is the sedan version of the all new A-Class hatchback we saw a while ago.
The one pictured above is the Chinese market model, called “L”. It has a longer wheelbase than the hatchback, by about 2 inches.
(Which, I think, will be the case for all versions of the sedan, including the non-Chinese ones.)
This is really not exciting at all. It already looks pretty stogy. Almost old.
And not more modern at all than the current CLA. Remember the CLA? A few years ago it was sold to us as that “new small sedan from Mercedes”. The one younger people were going to buy. For “under $30 000!” And it didn’t really work did it… (They never reached 30 000 sales a year in the US)
Not they are saying the same thing about this A Class sedan.
The interior is the same as the hatchback. Probably does feel better than the current CLA, but still looking very, very busy. (Like the hatchback interior)
I don’t know. I don’t really see the point of buying some really small sedan from a luxury brand.
This will probably be about $35 000 with just a couple of options.
Same as a totally loaded Honda Accord.
Which looks better, has way more room, a nicer interior and will be much more reliable in the long run.
I guess that 3 pointed logo is worth a lot to some people. Still…
Oh wait! There is also a new CLA coming up! In the form of a slightly sleeker looking version of this A Class sedan.
