Mercedes-Benz’s sub A-class model will take the form of a compact SUV according to a senior manager from the German car maker with knowledge of the new project.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity at the Geneva motor show this week, the Mercedes-Benz manager revealed to Autocar that development work had started on a Volkswagen Polo-sized model boasting iconic styling cues from the 34-year-old G-class.
“We have ideas for a B-segment car with a modern take on the traditional styling from the G-class. We’ve already indicated a desire to extend the G-class line-up with the Ener-G-Force concept shown at the motor show in Los Angeles, and this car is part of those plans.”
