Re: So the B-class made it to canada and not the u.s? (vrsexxy_GTI)



Yes, Canada is getting this and the US is not.
I haven't seen any official prices yet but they're expecting a base price of $30,000.00 for the B200 and $35,000.00 for the B200 Turbo. The B200 Turbo could exceed $40,000.00 with options. So at that price, it should compete well with the Audi A3.

we've got two of them, ones called a golf gti, the other a TT. that's why there is no 3 door a3. do i agree, no, but that's why.

I think that Canadians are more accepting of hatchbacks in general, but I think they're still less accepting when the price exceeds $35,000 CAD ($30,000 US).

That's one of the hottest MB's I've seen. I love it. Definitely better than the Merceds Pacifica...er, R-Class.
Although, with that being said, is this a Caliber?

the problem with the A3 currently is that its only available in FWD. when people hear audi, they think AWD quattro....what does this car not have? just that. and when it does come with that in december, it'll only be available in a V6 and automatic, well DSG! USELESS AUDI for many people! i think they really blew it big time on this one.

c'mon, you've seen what people will buy just for a badge (c230, for example). the streets are littered with them.

that is pretty [email protected] sweet! i'd go for that .... almost makes me want to move back to Canada to buy one
... hmmm... i wonder if it's "importable" to the U.S. ??
Canada is beginning to get more and more market specific vehicles that the U.S. isn't getting... B-class, 1-series, Yaris, Smart car, Nissan X-trail, and a few more (a couple of Chevys which I forget the name) (all in all, usually small cars that U.S. marketers think the public don't want, which in some cases might be true i guess, since they are smaller than H2's and get well beyond 20mpg
)
