The Mercedes-Benz Concept A Makes Its Debut

The recently announced Mercedes-Benz Concept A made its debut at the 2011 New York Motor Show this week. Mercedes-Benz debuted the concept art for the car at the 2011 Shanghai Motor Show but decided to keep the goods under wraps for a stateside debut.

Simply put, the Mercedes-Benz Concept A is stunning. The silver arrow has designed an aggressively luxurious compact car that could be a hit with people who love the brand's luxury but are scared off by its tuna boat-sized sedans. Under the hood, the Concept A has a turbocharged direct-injected, 4-cylinder 2.0L BlueEFFICENCY engine kicking out 210 horsepower. Despite its name, the car is headed for production and should be on lots sometime in the (hopefully) near future. Stats for Fierce Futuristic Compact Cars (UPDATE) Trending: Older & Warm
