2012 Mercedes A-Class 5-Door

The German car maker, Mercedes Benz announced its foray into the compact hatchback segment with the showcasing of the A Class hatchback at the 2012 Auto Expo. Going b the first impression, the car looks marvellous, thanks to its well styled exterior and decent proportions. Now, a bi-cyclist has caught the same concept car in real time on his video camera. The German car maker might have been doing some filming at some island for its press release material. Thanks it the bi-cyclist, we get to see the angles of the car in real time.

The Mercedes Benz A Class captured here is the 5 door version of the vehicle and it is to be the first body style to be launched in the market. The 5 door model of the A Class will be making its debut at the upcoming 2012 Geneva Auto Show slated to be held in the early part of March. Mercedes Benz has also announced its plans of bringing in a sportier version of the A class which will be a 3 door version possibly next year.

From the video, it is clearly observed that the car features the front bumper with wide pockets and large alloy wheels alongwith side skirts. Judging this, it is likely that the car might be the A25 AMG or the A Class with AMG sports package. We sit with our fingers crossed in anticipation on this car coming to India soon. if Mercedes Benz can bring this car to India and manage manufacturing operations from its Indian assembly plant, it is surely going to be one of the most sought after cars in its segment.
