Mercedes-Benz Concept A-Class

The Mercedes-Benz Concept A-Class is front-wheel drive with a new 2.0-liter turbocharged 210 horsepower four-cylinder gasoline engine mated to a dual clutch transmission and also has radar-based collision warning system with adaptive Brake Assist.

A smartphone is fully integrated into the infotainment systems of the Concept A-Class. When the phone is inserted into the recess provided in the center console, it is automatically synchronized with the COMAND multimedia system and all the functions of the smartphone, including internet radio, email and social networks such as Twitter or Facebook, are shown as applications on the 7-inch display and operated by the rotary/push control.

With U.S. gas prices soaring again, small fuel efficient cars are in focus again so this concept may become reality very soon to satisfy luxury-hungry, gas-conscience urban drivers.
