Mercedes-Benz does not want small cars

According to carmaker Mercedes-Benz, they will not try to build cars smaller than the A-Class despite their recent interest in front-wheel drive models and smaller segments. This is not a long term decision, so things can start changing, but not for now. This declaration came as a response to different rumors about Mercedes-Benz planning to fill up the gap there is between the future Smart ForFour and the A-Class. Nothing is for sure, yet, but these are the plans for now. In case you do not know yet, the ForFour model will measure less than 3.500 mm in length and so there is more than enough space for a model between this one and the A-Class, just like mentioned above. Different sources indicate than this will not be the case, apparently. The specialists do recognize the opportunity they have in terms of profit, but it would be a very long journey with a very uncertain result. This was the declaration of a specialist during the 2013 edition of the Frankfurt Motor Show that took place almost two weeks ago. The only thing left to see is if Daimler supermini will be built under the Smart Brand or the Mercedes-Benz brand, just like Mini and BMW did. As there is enough time until that decisive moment comes, know that Germans from Mercedes-Benz have decided to use Front-Wheel Drive platform for their fifth model. Next we will have the opportunity to see the A-Class, the B-Class, CLA and also the GLA. It is not sure for now, but different specialists say it will be a CLA Shooting Brake. Future plans of the company also include the launch of the all-new 3rd generation Mini hatchback. This is the strategy the carmaker has decided to adopt, but there is a lot of time until we will be able to say that it was the correct one.
