They chose to premiere the new A-Class Benz at the New York International Auto Show later this month.


I think it's cute, but based on the specs, that's all that it has to offer. According to Mercedes Benz, the subcompact hatchback gets a turbocharged, 2.0 liter, direct injection engine good for 210 horsepower. You read that correctly, I said 210 horsepower. It seats four and there's a decent amount of space for shopping bags luggage.


Again you have to remember that this is a concept car, and Mercedes Benz is using the New York Auto Show to peak customer's interest. There's that 50% chance that it might not hit dealerships.


I still like the design and the sleekness of this vehicle, but the horsepower needs a little work.
