Mercedes-Benz received 90,000 orders for the new A-Class image

The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz has recently announced that 90,000 orders for the A-Class generation have been received so far.

The upcoming rival of the Volkswagen Golf 7 has managed to raise approximately 90,000 orders so far, more than double than the orders received by VW for its new hatchback generation. The number itself is very impressive considering the economic crisis in which Europe is found. The first deliveries of the new generation Mercedes-Benz A-Class have started in late September and the model has been unveiled earlier this year, in Geneva.

The new generation of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class has been officially presented to the public in a world premiere at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March and, since then, the model has been brought to almost every major automotive event. The 2013 Mercedes-Benz A-Class is being produced in Hungary and in Germany and its engine lineup includes units ranging between 109 horsepower and 211 horsepower. One of the most expected versions of the 2013 Mercedes-Benz A-Class is the A45 AMG. Prices for the 2013 Mercedes-Benz A-Class start at just under 24,000 euros on the Old Continent.
