Mercedes-Benz A-Class Cabriolet

Details of the upcoming Mercedes A-Class Cabriolet have been revealed. The models come as something of a surprise, as no one expected a Cabriolet version of a car within that particular class.

The car said to take inspiration from the BMW 1 Series Cabriolet, which it is set to directly rival.  The Audi A3 Cabriolet will also naturally receive major competition from this model too. It will add to the array of Mercedes-Benz cars due for release next year, including the new B-Class. Will they all make a big impact next year? The release date of the car hasn’t yet been officially confirmed by the company.  Some respected sources have even said that the car is just a rumour at present. 2014 is the production date outlined by others. Following that, naturally there is also no word on the price of the car either.

Under bonnet will be 1.6 litre petrol alongside with the diesel variant coming the form of a 1.8 litre engine. Each will be able to achieve 109 BHP and 136 BHP respectively. Sensationally there will also be an AMG version of the car available, with it being able to produce an almighty 350 BHP and being an all wheel drive vehicle. The four cylinder powered engine will be a wonderful choice for the enthusiastic, thrill seeking type of driver.

The seven speed dual clutch gearbox will be the most popular and standard option. However the six speed manual variant will be adapted to a different sort of driver and will be made available too in particular countries.

The Geneva Motor Show next year could be the ideal showcase for the vehicle. If this was the case, it would be paraded in front of potentially millions of automotive fans. We are sure that it will get plenty of attention if it indeed on display at the motor show.

However don’t get too excited, as the sale, production and prices haven’t been confirmed yet. If the car is pushed into production, we are not sure if it be made available on countries other the U.S.A.  Would there be a huge demand for the Mercedes-Benz Cabriolet in the UK or in any other part of the world for that matter?
