With its wide grille and angled-in headlights, the Concept A Sedan bears a resemblance to the Mercedes-AMG GT Concept from the front. The Concept A's headlights are more angular, however, and feature a 3D grid element within the housings that glows different colors depending on the light source, thanks to a coating of UV paint. The taillights feature the same internal grid structure, and mirror the headlights in shape.

Just looking at it, you may think this is a thinly veiled look at the next-gen CLA sedan. While that's definitely possible, we've heard that the A-Class sedan will be a separate model slotting between the CLA and C-Class. The Concept A's dimensions don't give many clues as to where it will fit. The concept measures 179.9 inches long, or 2.4 inches shorter than a U.S.-spec CLA. It's also 3.6 inches wider and an inch taller, and is described as having "coupe-like" proportions.

Regardless of where it will fall in the lineup, the Concept A is good-looking for a small car. Mercedes says the concept marks the next evolution of its "sensual purity" design philosophy.

"Our Concept A Sedan shows that the time of creases is over," said Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer Daimler AG, in a release. "With its perfect proportions and a sensual treatment of surfaces with reduced lines, it is the next milestone of 'Sensual Purity' and has the potential to introduce a new design era."

No details on powertrain were given, but expect a production version to receive turbocharged four-cylinder options, potentially making upwards of 355 hp in AMG trim. The production car will likely ride on a next-gen version of Mercedes' MFA platform, shared with next-gen iterations of the GLA and B-Class, and will do battle directly with the Audi A3 sedan.
