Feature Flick: 2013 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Takes a Drive by The Sea

With the reveal of the 2013 Mercedes-Benz A-Class, the German automaker put an end to the tease of spy shots and image leaks that lasted nearly a year. But Mercedes isn’t done hyping up its new compact hatch, as this official video from the silver arrow brand promotes the A-Class by placing it in a scenic coastal setting.

The video starts by highlighting a few of the car’s features, with close-ups on the LED running lights, unique two-bar grille, and sweeping character lines. The car then gets down to business, driving on a two-lane road overlooking sheer cliffs and a rocky shoreline. After awhile, the scenery becomes the focus, and you sort of forget this is about a car. The A-Class returns to the spotlight though, now showing off its interior, along with its drivers, who appear to be having a good time.

Mercedes-Benz is banking on younger buyers with the A-Class, and this video appears to target that demographic. The compact Mercedes hatchback is expected to arrive stateside by 2014, and based on what we’ve seen at Geneva, the car might not be a bad fit for the U.S. market. Check out the video for yourself below, and tell us in the comments section if you think the car will make it in the ‘States.
