Set to have its official debut in March, we can see here for the first time the production version of the all-new A-Class.
Set to have its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, a group of cyclists have recently managed to take a quick snapshot of the 2013 Mercedes-Benz A-Class. Apparently, a production crew was doing a photo shoot in the Canary Islands when the cyclists just happened to pass by. And from what we can see here, the production version really does closely resemble the Concept A-Class first shown at last year's Shanghai Auto Show.
Along with the German automaker's more angular front head light design, there's plenty going on along the sides with those sharply creased lines extending from the front to the rear doors. The new A-Class will be available in both three- and five-door hatch variants and power will come from gasoline and diesel engines.
An AMG version with a turbocharged four is also planned and will reportedly have around 300hp. The base 1.6-liter four-cylinder is said to be rated at around 122hp. We'll have more details as we get closer to Geneva this March.
