Report – Mercedes confirms new models for the United States image

The German automaker is looking to fight for supremacy in the competitive US market – and for that is using fresh blood, such as the A-Class Sedan and four-door AMG GT supercar.

After numerous reports, Mercedes has apparently confirmed internally it will bring the A Class to the United States. They’re of course not talking about the five-door hatchback already on sale, but rather the A-Class Sedan that will soon be introduced on the second generation of the company’s Modular Front-wheel-drive architecture (MFA), set to underpin the new generation of the entire A Series. The model has already been shown to US dealers and according to rumors it will arrive as the company’s entry-level model, sitting even below the CLA “four-door coupe.” The A-Class Sedan has already been previewed as a global model using the Concept A Sedan during the Auto Shanghai motor show in China.

The A Class for the United States should arrive next fall – after already being introduced at dealerships in Europe or China – and serve as the sole model in the series, even though the hatchback has been around for no less than two decades. Apparently during the Mercedes dealer meeting the sales representatives also caught a glimpse of the production version four-door AMG GT – the high-performance sedan will also reach the United States next summer in a bid to face off with the second-generation Porsche Panamera.
