I have fallen in love with the A3
Sportback. I'd really like one too, but I just can't swallow a $25,000 car right now. And it does not seem that much smaller than the A4
, at least the 1st generation model.
My big problem with the A-Class is that is still looks pod-like, even with the sharp body creases. I keep reading rumors that it will come over to North America, but as poorly as the C-Class sport coupe has sold, the A-class would flop in NA
... especially given that Mercedes-Benz has not been able to capture a younger audience.
