Premier of Mercedes Concept A-Class at Auto Shanghai Show - Web Exclusive

Mercedes-Benz Concept A-Class is a car that might have come from another planet with a new expressive design.

Apr 8, 2011

A long hood, a low silhouette and slim window areas give the car its sporty appearance. This theme is reflected in the design of the wheels and a very special effect is created by the lights with full LED headlamps. The daytime running lamps consist of 90 optical fibers with aluminum sleeves and they are arranged in a wing-shape within the headlamp. This front-wheel drive model is powered by the 2.0 liter engine from the new M270 series. It was designed for transverse installation and thanks to direct injection and turbocharging it offers 210hp with minimal emissions and better fuel consumption.

The concept car also features a radar-based collision warning system with adaptive Brake Assist, which lowers the risk of rear-end collisions. This assistance system, Collision Prevention Assist, gives a warning and prepares Brake Assist for a precise braking response. This is initiated as soon as the driver hits the brake pedal.

In the interior, the dashboard has the shape of an aircraft wing and a translucent, stretchable textile lining. The shape of the air vents is reminiscent of a jet aircraft engine. There’s also a smartphone is integrated into the operating concept of the A-Class. All the applications, services and features can be operated via the display.
