    The design is great and all shapes, proportions and style is perfectly combined. What about story and history?
    I’m not either design or car specialist, but I don’t get it. Initially, the W168 was a city family car, and Mercedes is more about comfort than sport (not talking about SLR etc., I’m talking comparing to BMW). The idea of A-Class was a car small outside big inside. Why do we need small hatchbacks or sedans at all? What’s wrong with micro-vans?
    Let’s say BMW released Series-1 eight years ago, but that was initially oriented on fast riding. Well, BMW never produced vans and they never had B-Class, Series-1 looks a logical product.
    Why would Mercedes change its concept about A-Klasse?
