Photos of the New A-Class : This is How a Hatch Should Look Like

Clarissa April 13, 2012

We’ve known a lot about the new A-Class, especially when it was shown in Geneva. However, it seems the company wants everyone to know that this is what a luxury hatch is, and it should be this beautiful.

“The new A-Class impresses thanks to its uniquely high quality standards for the compact segment, achieved through the design idiom, the selection of top-quality materials and the options for combining them.

The character lines, in particular on its sides, lend the A-Class structure and terseness. The new dynamic style is perceptible at first glance in the interior as well.”

Well, I agree, the A-Class is a beauty, yet it is elegantly simple.
