Price Expectations

Mercedes has two firm buying audience in mind with the A-Class Limousine. First are the first-time buyers looking at entering the luxury car space. Second are buyers who may already have at least one other luxury car at home and are looking at buying another, possibly for younger members in the family. As such, pricing could be crucial and it is expected that it could start at under 40 lakh.
