The Mercedes A-Class platform will be the basis for two more models, to take the number of small cars from the manufcaturer to a total of five according to Auto Express.

With the A-Class, B-Class and CLA already working off the same platform, a small SUV and compact Shooting Brake model are next in line.


The small off-roader is expected to be on show in concept form at the Shanghai Motor Show in April. With the CLA based estate coming later. However, Dr Joachim Schmidt explained there would be no A-Class convertible at all, while a spokesman claimed that the limited market and costs to develop the convertible version mean it isn't viable.


Mercedes is hoping new models like the A-Class and CLA will appeal to a younger market for the manufacturer, as it attempts to bring down the average age of its customer.
