The new Mercedes A-Class has been revealed, as part of a marketing campaign in Germany.
The 2012 A-Class will make its public debut at the Geneva motor show in March and is due on sale in the autumn. Mercedes has released video footage of the all-new model as part of a promotion campaign, however.
In the video, a new A-Class is wrapped in QR-coded camouflage. A number of similarly clad cars will be driven across Germany as part of a competition, where entrants can download an app and then collect badges by scanning QR codes from the prototype cars, Facebook and Twitter.
The new models outline is clearly visible from the disguised prototype a three-door model is likely to join the range during 2013.
