Mercedes Benz took things a notch higher when they unveiled their Concept A-Class. The cars expressive design symbolises concentrated dynamism. The technical highlights include a new, turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol engine, a dual clutch transmission and a radar-based collision warning system with adaptive Brake Assist.
Sporty in its appearance, this front-wheel drive model is powered by a four-cylinder petrol engine from the new M270 series. The Concept A-Class is equipped with the 2-litre variant of the new engine, developing 210 bhp. This BlueEFFICIENCY unit is combined with the new Mercedes-Benz dual clutch transmission.
The compact concept car 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 visual and acoustic warning to a possibly inattentive driver, and prepares Brake Assist for an absolutely precise braking response. This is initiated as soon as the driver emphatically operates the brake pedal. With futuristic interiors, advanced technology and enhanced sportiness, the Concept Class A sure sets the standard for a futuristic compact car.
