Mercedes-Benz Not Planning To Build Smaller Cars than the A-Class

Mercedes-Benz won't be making any smaller cars other than the A-Class, according to what Daimler AG CEO Dieter Zetsche said responding to rumors that the automaker is planning to fill the gap between the A-Class and the upcoming Smart ForFour.
As the ForFour will reportedly be less than 3,500mm (137.8in) long, it would leave space for an intermediary model between it and the A-Class, which measures 4,292mm (168.9in) in length. However, Mercedes-Benz doesn’t plan to take that route.
“It’s clear that there’s an opportunity for a supermini. Such a car would offer plenty of volume for us, but it would also be tough to make profit from,” Zetsche told Autocar magazine at the Frankfurt Motor Show. “For now, I don’t see a need for us to go that way, but further down the line, it’s a possibility,” the CEO added.

This experience though comes at a cost. Car EMIs pop up every month to remind us that we need to curb our indulgences and this can go on for years. Read more

Certified pre-owned cars are inspected by the manufacturer, i.e., by a factory mechanic, once it’s traded in off-lease, and it must meet certain criteria that help safeguard the car’s quality when you become its new owner.
