The stylish new A-Class will join the fray in 2013, making it the most reasonably priced three-pointed star in the country. When it comes in, the A-Class will most likely start under the Rs 20-lakh barrier and will make for a great entry-level model to undercut the other Germans. The A-Class comes with a pretty sporty design and a feature-packed interior, which will go a long way in attracting younger buyers to the brand.
Based on the same platform as the B-Class, the A-Class will share its engines with it too - the 1.6-litre 121 bhp petrol engine and a 1.8-litre 134 bhp diesel engine (which will also be introduced in the B-Class soon).
