• Stuttgart, Sep 28, 2007 - The Mercedes-Benz ideals in a compact car - that is what the A-Class, launched in 1997, is all about. The vehicle is highly innovative: for instance, its bodywork structure with sandwich floor, together with a comprehensive safety system, set new engineering standards. The successful combination of youthful styling, state-of-the-art technology, and a clever spatial concept put the Mercedes-Benz A-Class in a class of its own.
