    Mercedes intent on competing with BMW 1M Coupe and Audi RS3? A-Class AMG coming

    BenzInsider is reporting that Mercedes has announced through its AMG division it intends to build a rival to the Audi RS3 and BMW 1M Coupe based on the A-Class. We have not seen an announcement from Mercedes confirming this so take it as a rumor for now. However, what is presented is quite interesting with a 320 hp A-Class AMG hatchback to go toe to toe. We say bring it on, and if it looks as good as the rendering and performs as well as the competition it will be a hit.

    I wonder why it took them over 14 years to finally decide to bring the A class over here. 320HP sounds very promising.

    It is just a rendering, who knows what it will really look like.

    I don't know who makes up these renderings, but they have no imagination what soever.
    The first looks alot like an Opel Astra

    And the second one is a spitting image of a Ford Mondeo, both with a Merc nose

    The second one is actually not a rendering it is the concept design study for the A Class.

    Well the A class wont be what it was before. The new car is aimed at the 1 series and the A3.

    The New Mercedes City Car is going to take the place of the old A class in that market.

    Bottom 2 pictures of what you posted look too big for that(the silver ones).
    They are more like a Mondeo size car...

    Well they look like that to you because you are trying to compare every picture posted here to other cars.

    It isn't a Mondeo size car

    I dont think Mercedes designers have any other car in mind when designing a concept study.

    I don't know why they do not, the Scirocco is a great design.

    I am definately interested in a small class Mercedes. I would own one if it came out in a year or two. Turbo merc in small chassis, I'd hit it!

    It's an expensive Golf with another body. Like the New Beetle. Only with more powerfull engines. It's still a Golf
