It looks like the Mercedes-Benz A-Class is very close to its launch date, with Lucaz Koh sighting these trailers ferrying a load of A-Class and B-Class on the KESAS Highway.

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

There are two different variants of the A-Class to be seen here on the trailer – the black car at the back of the top deck of the trailer above is most likely the A200. Curiously it sports a different alloy wheel design compared to the red A200 that we saw at JPJ Putrajaya. These new alloys look more interesting than the ones on the JPJ unit though, so it’s probably a good thing.


The silver A-Class at the rear of the top deck of this trailer is the A250 Sport, which has a more powerful 2.0 litre turbocharged four cylinder mill 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.
