Mercedes-Benz to develop exciting versions for the A- & B-Klasse

From an article posted today on Autocar UK website, we discover that Dieter Zetsche has big plans with Mercedes-Benz. In order to give a tough response to its opponents, the Stuttgardt-based carmaker is expected to release by 2011 two brand new models, derived from its smallest cars. I talk about the well-known SUV to compete with the future BMW X1, probably to be badged BLK, and about a possible coupe version built on the platform of the third gen. A-Klasse. The sporty model will be named CLA and its price will start from 19000 pounds. The engines to be used will be brand new, with outputs ranging from 120 to 200 BHP, 4-cylinders direct-injection petrol or commonrail diesel powered. It is believed that the new CLA will replace, on a long term, the recently presented CLC-Klasse.
