The A-Class has a super-low drag coefficient of 0.22, making it one of the most aerodynamic cars on the road.

It looks like a baby CLS, and that's no bad thing.

All US-spec A-Class sedans will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine.

The turbo engine makes 188 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque, but feels stronger than those numbers suggest.

Every A220 comes standard with LED head- and taillights, as well as a panoramic sunroof.

The A-Class doesn't replace the CLA-Class sedan, and in fact, a new CLA based on this car is expected to arrive next year.

The A-Class will likely be priced just under $35,000 when it arrives in the US early next year.
