New A Class spied ahead of Geneva debut

Mercedes-Benz A Class

A cyclist from the Dutch cycling club OGOTT has come up with a great sneak preview of the new Mercedes-Benz A Class on a recent trip to the Canary Islands. The car appeared to be on an official photography shoot and is scheduled for debut next month at the Geneva Motor Show.

As one would expect the production model A Class looks to be a watered-down version of the Concept A-Class released last year, but all in all it looks like Benz has done a pretty good job.

While the Bangle-like ‘flame surfacing’ won’t be to everyone’s liking it’s great to see such a major player shedding its inherent conservatism to target a broader, and perhaps younger, audience. On this preview it’s perhaps only the the SL-like headlights that may prove to be the only disappointment.

AMG anyone?
