Mercedes-Benz A-Class Concept

Thinking about a new hatchback? You might want to wait a second. The Mercedes-Benz A-Class Concept ($TBA) is the Tri-Star's newest compact concept, but doesn't skimp on the goodies — like a BlueEFFICIENCY 2.0L four-cylinder good for 210 hp, a dual-clutch transmission, a radar-based collision detection system, Adaptive Brake Assist, and museum-worthy looks. Here's to hoping they actually, you know, make the damn thing.

  • Volkswagen Formula XL1 Concept

    Imagine if you could go over 250 miles on a single gallon of gas. Volkswagen hasn't just imagined it — they've made it a reality with the Volkswagen Formula XL1 Concept ($TBA). Far more production-ready than the company's past one-liter efforts, the XL1 is powered by a hybrid two cylinder TDI engine and electric motor/lithium ion battery pairing, and features a seven-speed dual clutch DSG transmission, side-by-side seating, wing-style doors, carbon fibre reinforced polymer parts throughout the body, and the ability to go around 20 miles without needing any gas at all. We're just hoping the design gets a little more work, as the futuristic-as-of-1983 styling isn't really doing it for us.

  • Mini Paceman Concept

    Like the concept of the Mini but sick of the brand's staid, boxy looks? Feast your eyes on the Mini Paceman Concept ($TBA). This new "sports activity coupe" features more interior room than the traditional Cooper but maintains the two-doors + hatch DNA, and also offers a permanent all-wheel-drive system, a 1.6-litre four banger good for 211 hp, MacPherson spring struts on the front, a multi-link rear axle borrowed from parent BMW, and a striking design that will never be mistaken for boring.
