The Mercedes-Benz Concept A Sedan has just debuted at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show. The compact four-door could very well end up being the cheapest sedan Mercedes sells if it goes into production. The German automaker recently topped arch rival BMW in worldwide sales and is rapidly trying to fill every hole in its lineup in order to keep the good times rolling. There was no word from Mercedes on what would power the Concept A Sedan. A small four-cylinder engine (or tinier depending on the market) seems likely.
The Mercedes-Benz Concept A Sedan is also a preview of the company's new design language. Out are the excessive lines and creases. Those have been replaced by softer curves that give the sedan a more free-flowing look. If the Mercedes-Benz Concept A Sedan goes into production don't expect to see it sold stateside as buyers in the United States have begun to shun sedans (especially smalls sedans) in favor of crossovers.
