Default Zetsche States That Mercedes A-Class And B-Class May Come To The U.S. In 2011

The news comes after previous reports that state the A-Class and B-Class as we currently know them will soon cease to exist. In their next-generation, the models' sandwich construction is expected to be abandoned for a more conventional arrangement - one that allows for a greater range of models, including a three-door coupe, a cabrio, a 4x4 and a MPV.

The B Class has been in Canada since MY 2006. They appear to sell very well here. Check out www.mercedes-benz.ca and build your own.

No offense but the B Class is significantly larger than the smart(which also does sell very wellin Canada.) The B holds five, has a peppy 2.0 L, 134HP engine as well as a 2.0L 193HP Turbo model which is even quicker. There is also a trunk and is widely recognized as a MB.

Part 2major posting issues
The smart holds only two in a cavernous interior with a teeny trunk/hatch, a teeny 70HP gas engine (new for 2008 to please U.S. buyerswas a 40HP diesel before) but has thebest gas mileage of any non-hybrid car in the market.
