Mercedes Benz cars are known for their pure class, perfection and an overdose of luxury. The cars from their stable are also known to thrill their owner drivers whenever he/she feels the need to get behind the wheels. Off late, Mercedes has also been foraying into compact class of sedans – smaller size but the same luxury and fun quotient. This segment of cars keep the focus on the young affluent, people who have become successful in their life at a very young age. This class of its cars what the Mercedes calls, the A class.
Recently, last week, Mercedes Benz had presented its idea ‘Concept A’ in Shanghai, China. With this concept, Mercedes is all set to redefine its own definition of premium compact cars. While the purpose of the concept was to showcase the design capabilities of the German luxury marquee and the direction of its design language, a Russian graphics designer, Aksyonov Nikita, has used the opportunity to take the design to the next level!
He has employed the concept’s design and has enhanced the four-door presentation into a convertible. His design has been posted in a website called “Behance” where creative professionals share their artistic renderings. The design looks cool especially with the front end dominated by a Panamericana grille hosting the famous Mercedes three pointed star.
While the design is definitely the brain child of the artist himself, Mercedes Benz should definitely take the cue from the rendering and off spring a roofless version of its compact sedan. We, for sure, are confident that the model will definitely gain a wide audience. A cabriolet version in the compact class segment from Mercedes will take on the likes of Audi A3 cabriolet and BMW 2 series open top versions.
The current version of the A-class is powered by both petrol and diesel engines. The petrol engine displaces 1.6 L and produces 121 bhp @ 5000 rpm while the diesel displaces 2 L and is good enough for 134 bhp @ 3600 rpm.
