Besides the slammed body (which is really too much), matte grey wrap, and black lines added to the lower part of the doors, the wheels are what set this compact hatchback apart in XTomi’s rendering.
Signed by Vossen, and part of their LC-105T series, the rims can be had from €1,300 (equal to $1,592) each. They’re available in no less than 48 color choices, from 19 to 24 inches in size, and they already equip several vehicles, including the Lexus RC, Porsche 911 and BMW M3.
While digital artists play with the new A-Class, Mercedes-Benz is getting ready to launch it in different markets, including Europe and Canada.
The United States will have to make do without the Audi A3 Sportback and BMW 1-Series challenger, but we will eventually get the four-door sedan version, most likely later this year.
Europeans will be able to choose between several petrol and diesel powertrains. The lineup will include the 1.4-liter unit, with 160hp and 250Nm (184lb-ft) of torque, and a 2.0-liter with 221hp and 350Nm (258lb-ft) of torque. The new A-Class will also use the Daimler-Renault-developed 1.3-liter petrol engine, and it will likely gain at least one more diesel unit.
The AMG A35 and AMG A45 will serve as the range-topping members of the family, while later on Mercedes-Benz is expected to launch plug-in hybrid and electric variants of the compact car as well.
