Mercedes-Benz has released a new video that highlights features of its new A-Class, which has been completely redesigned from the ground up and sets standards in the compact class. As the most highly anticipated car from Mercedes, the new A-Class has been one of the most popular platforms since it was first introduced back in 1997.

The new model will feature tons of technical amenities that precisely address the needs of the new generation of drivers, as well as features a sporty and dynamic exterior design. It’s also going to have great fuel efficiency and be priced at a relative low MSRP (for a luxury vehicle at least). The car will have both a 1.6L or 2.0L engine, offering between 115 and 211hp, hooked up to either a six-speed manual or 7G-DCT dual-clutch automatic transmission. It will also come with an optional iPhone hookup that uses a special app to give you full functionality, and plenty of safety features like adaptive Brake Assist and Collision Prevention Assist.
