Mercedes Benz Hopes Smaller Cars Will Deliver US Sales
Probably the most important compact is the A-Class, which Mercedes-Benz USA originally didn’t want. However, the sleek design of the concept that came to New York this year convinced not only the public, but also the company’s top executives.
Next up is the B-Class, which in its people-mover base form might lack a bit of luster, but will also spawn the cheapest Mercedes sedan and a crossover soon.
As for the midlife refresh for the C-Class, this will bring hybrid and clean diesel variant to all 50 states. In the larger car segment, the CL coupe will receive a facelift soon, and the new S-Class will come to the US in 2013.
