It’s no secret that the Mercedes-Benz A-Class will be launching soon in Malaysia, thanks to ads by eager salesmen and spyshots of the car. Here’s the first official teaser from Mercedes-Benz Malaysia, as posted on the company’s Facebook page. The ‘coming soon’ banner is also a call for prospects to register their interest.

UPDATE: The Mercedes-Benz A-Class has been officially launched in Malaysia. Read our launch report and view the pics here.

The most recent sighting of the A-Class was earlier this month, where a reader spotted the baby Merc being transported on the Kesas highway. Two different variants were visible, likely to be the A200 (nicer wheels than those on the red A200 from JPJ Putrajaya) and the A250 Sport. The latter, which looks fetching, has a more powerful 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine compared to the 1.6 litre in the A200.

Other than the sportier-looking bodykit, it also has a different alloy wheel design, which is identical to the sole A250 that we saw on a transporter earlier.
