It’s no secret Mercedes-Benz is working on revamping their A-Class and B-Class lineups, as the company has confirmed they’ll be redesigning the entry level ranges from the ground up in a variety of body types. Speculating on what exactly might be in store for the models, Auto Express has published a rather lengthy look at Mercedes upcoming models, starting with the fact a newly designed hatchback is in the works set to rival the Volkswagen Golf and Audi A3. According to the publication, the new model will be based on a new front-wheel drive platform, and it will take its design cues primarily from the F800 Style concept in either a three or five door design. Launching in 2012, the hatchback will likely maintain the A-Class moniker, and it will serve as one of four new key vehicles making use of Mercedes’ new front wheel drive architecture.
