UPDATE: The new Mercedes-Benz A Class has been revealed. Click here for all the details.

Just a few days ago images claimed to be leaked patent drawings of the upcoming 2013 Mercedes-Benz A-Class surfaced online, revealing a stylish yet somewhat toned down hatchback design when compared directly with the recently revealed Concept A-Class.

While we’re unlikely to get any confirmation from Mercedes-Benz as to the authenticity of the patent drawings, an inside source has revealed to the guys at Car and Driver that the images are in fact legit and that they accurately show the upcoming five-door version of the new A-class.

If you’re a little disappointed by the production-oriented design, remember that up to four different variants of the new A-Class are expected to be launched in the U.S., including three- and five-door hatchbacks, a tallish van and a four-door coupe.

There’s also expected to be a high-performance AMG model whose extra aggressive styling could more closely resemble the lines of the original Concept A-Class.



Right now, the new 2013 Mercedes-Benz is expected to arrive in the U.S. late next year or in early 2013. Europe, however, will get to see the face of the new A-Class range early next year when the van-like model goes on sale.
