Two new Mercedes-Benz sedans headed to North America

  Two new Mercedes-Benz sedans headed to North America Count on seeing the A-Class and AMG GT sedans in North American dealers next summerAccording to Automotive News, the upcoming Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan will make the journey across the Atlantic and hit North American dealers next year. Exact details are few and far between, but the report suggests a base price under US$30,000 and it will be sold alongside the CLA-Class.

There's always a chance it could grow two doors by next week, though.

It's only been about two days since Mercedes-Benzfirst teased its EQA electric concept ahead of its debut in Frankfurt. The company has seen fit to send out another teaser, one that has me eating my hat.

It was a logical assumption that the EQA might resemble the Euro-spec A-Class, which is a five-door hatchback. A little extra stretching could have it resembling the CLA-Class sedan or even the Concept A Sedan. But after looking at this teaser -- nope. All wrong. It's a three-door hatch.

Then again, it's just a design sketch, so perhaps it will have five doors in Frankfurt. There are plenty of traditional concept-car staples, like wheels that barely fit in the wells and mirrors that may as well not even exist. The side is a hot mess of curves, swooshes and a few sharp angles -- again, that's a concept car for you.

The EQA Concept will debut on September 12 during the Frankfurt Auto Show, so there aren't too many days of speculation remaining before we finally figure out how many damn doors this thing has.

<p>EQ's next model is a compact EV hatch</p>Riding on a 107.4-inch wheelbase, the Mercedes-Benz EQA Concept is 168.7 inches long, 71.3 inches wide and, 56.2 inches tall, meaning it's about the same size as a compact car like the Volkswagen Golf or the Audi A3. The EQA's most prominent feature is its interactive grille, which uses a black panel display that changes graphics depending on the drive mode it's in. In Sport mode, the panel shows a flame-like graphic in blue while in Sport+ mode, it depicts a red Panamericana grille, which is the design found on the Mercedes-AMG GT.
