Mercedes-Benz Concept A-Class revealed at the Shanghai Auto Show

by Alex

The Auto Shanghai Show for the present year 2011 witnessed the presentation of the Concept A-Class by Mercedes Benz. The concept car marks the advent of a new generation of compact car from the Stuttgart based company. The concept car flaunts a long bonnet, and a slender greenhouse along with a relatively low silhouette. The car derives power from a four cylinder petrol engine which is a recent development at Mercedes. The engine boasts of direct injection and turbo charging which make it capable of delivering high performance with the minimum of fuel intake and emissions.

The power rating of the engine is an impressive 155 kw or 210 HP which has been achieved by the use of a two liter version of the Blue Efficiency power unit. The unit works in tandem with the new dual clutch transmission from Mercedes Benz.

Another nice feature with the Concept A-Class is the incorporation of the collision warning system which makes it a first in the compact segment and greatly reduces the risk of a rear end collision. The system is radar controlled and comes packed with brake assist (Collision Prevention assist that has the acronym of CPA).

Dr. Zetsche has this to say of the rear end collision prevention system: “We will offer this system as standard in our new generation of compact cars. Overall, we are bringing four model variants to market. And, because our customers expect cars that demand no compromise, we are building nothing less than the Mercedes of the compact segment, with all the benefits that typically set our vehicles apart – from safety to quality and comfort through to cultivated sporting character and expressive design.”
