Towards a new niche model from the manufacturer’s catalog to the star? Possibly but to take with tweezers …
And if on the lower segment Mercedes broadened its catalog by introducing a new car?
While the catalog now includes the SLC (which took over the SLK torch) and SL or AMG-GT, the return of a small roadster is back.
Nothing official of course but a track relayed in the columns of a publication. To take with a lot of conditional.
Technically this hypothetical Mercedes SLA would pose as a cousin of the platform of the next members of the star-studded compact, saving on investment and profitability.
This small roadster would come to tickle his counterpart of Ingolstadt in particular. In the speculation series, we can also envisage a more powerful and pointed version stamped AMG in the current life cycle of the car.
An entry-level roadster at Mercedes? A concept in this direction was unveiled in 2014, the study SLA (basis of Class A) exhibited at the fair in Detroit 2000.
No concrete action has since been given to this famous little roadster fun, premium and more financially accessible. So will not or will not come in a cabriolet and / or coupe declination?
