Will Mercedes-Benz Introduce a Compact Car in North America?

2017 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Release Date

If you’ve never heard of the A-Class, it is because it has never been available for purchase in the U.S. It has been a successful European car since its 1997 introduction and rumor has it that it may be in for a United States debut for 2017. Read on to learn more about the 2017 Mercedes-Benz A-Class release date.

The A-Class is an entry-level Mercedes-Benz. That means that it is one of if not the most affordable Mercedes-Benz available. It is currently in its third generation and is available with a wide range of gasoline and diesel engines. An American introduction of this car could disrupt sales for cars like the incoming Focus RS or the Golf R400 thanks to an AMG model with 350 horsepower.

A-Class Engine Options

Right now, the A-Class is available in places like Europe and Australia with four combustion engines and four diesel engines. Across the spectrum, it ranges from 89 horsepower to 355 horsepower with all-wheel drive, which it accomplishes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.

A-Class in the U.S.

Mercedes-Benz hasn’t officially announced any plans to implement the A-Class into the American market, but if it does happen, it will replace the CLA-Class as the smallest Mercedes-Benz offered in the country. It truly is the perfect time for Mercedes-Benz to jump on an opportunity to show the western world what its compact segment can do.

U.S.A Release Date

Because of the lack of information available on Mercedes-Benz intentions regarding the A-Class, right now we can only speculate. It is likely that the car will be introduced with a new design at an international car show to promote its immigration to the U.S. That will most likely take place next fall, which means the 2017 Mercedes-Benz A-Class release date is expected to land on the fourth quarter of 2016.
