We'll see a shorter-wheelbase variant in the coming months, and that's the one that's heading Stateside.
While the idea of a compact sedan with an extended wheelbase might seem odd, extended sedans are huge in China.
Mercedes-Benz has introduced stretched variants of the C-Class and E-Class in the Middle Kingdom in years past.
The front end of the A-Class L Sedan is the same as the A-Class hatchback, with its new triangular headlights drawing similarities to the new CLS-Class.
Out back, there's a traditional trunk with taillights that don't look much different than the hatchback's.
The angle on the rear glass doesn't appear to drop as early as on the current CLA-Class sedan.
That means people might actually fit in the backseat this time around.
When the A-Class L Sedan launches in the second half of this year, it will arrive in China with a single engine -- a 1.33-liter I4 putting out either 134 or 161 horsepower.
Eventually, a 2.0-liter I4 with 188 horsepower will arrive.
We'll see the US-spec version of the A-Class sedan later this year.
