Revamped A class on the way...

..but not to the USA, of course.

Mercedes? secret Golf rival revealed | Auto Express News | News | Auto Express

Quote:
And it doesn’t stop there. Mercedes is planning a further youth-focused model to rival the forthcoming Audi A1 and BMW supermini. But this car is more likely to be badged as a Smart to replace the critically panned and unsuccessful four-door, four-seater ForFour.

It will be built on the same rear-wheel-drive platform as Renault’s groundbreaking Twizy electric model, as part of the recent small vehicle tie-up announced between the two car giants.
And what's a Renault Twizy?

They mean the Twingo...

As part of the article I posted in my 2013 fortwo thread, supposedly the plan is to make the Twingo do some platform sharing with a new fortwo, a new A Class, and if the bigheads agree, a new forfour...
