Mercedes A-Class concept sports dash-mounted tablet

Tablet visions for the aviation inspired A-Class

Mercedes-Benz has given us a glimpse into the future by showing off its A-Class concept car which notably includes a dash-mounted tablet.

With styling said to be inspired by "The wind and the waves, as well as aviation engineering" amongst other things, the A-Class will also have a  BlueEFFICIENCY 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine under the hood producing 210-horsepower, which should give it a significant grunt.

The German automakers having clearly not overlooked the growing prominence of tablets and as you can see from this Mercedes-Benz A-Class picture, have made enough room for an iPad for instance which looks well positioned when you need to tap in those directions into your satnav app.

Other innards to salivate over include a dual clutch transmission, Adaptive Brake Assist and a radar-based collision-detection system which should help reduce the chances of someone going into the back of your A-Class.

The A-Class concept is set to make an appearance at the Shanghai Motor Show later this month, so you can expect to hear more details about it in the very near future. You can check out the teaser video below to get a closer look at the sleek A-class concept.
