With the A-Class, Mercedes Benz has made a changeover from its usual brand identity. That is from retailing only saloons, SUVs and coupes to entering the luxury hatchback segment and not to miss the affordability quotient so as to be able to garner a wider audience. It is definitely a move in the right direction for the German luxury automaker, considering competitors too fielding their models in the same segment. The A-Class looks sporty and innovative and its exterior and interiors are splendid and eye-catching. With a hatchback added to its portfolio, Mercedes has heralded a new era, that is offering a premium vehicle at affordable, entry level prices.
