Facelifted Mercedes A-Class gets detailed image

A new report with the facelifted version of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class is telling us some interesting info about the model.

There is no surprise anymore that Mercedes-Benz is currently working on a facelifted version of its compact premium hatchback, the A-Class, but what comes as something new is the fact that this is said to become available for order this July. According to a recent report, the same array of tweaks as the facelifted B-Class will be made and the updated A-Class will be coming with optional LED headlights instead of the bi-xenon ones, with revised safety and assistance systems, with LED ambient lighting in the cabin, with Wi-Fi hotspot support and with other minor tweaks.

The smallest model Mercedes-Benz is currently making will also get an updated range-topping version as the A45 AMG will come with approximately 20 HP (15 kW) more. Keep in mind that this will still be using the same 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine as the current model, but this will be producing as much as 380 HP (280 kW). One of its main rivals, the Audi RS3 Sportback, is coming with 367 HP (270 kW). The extra power is expected to help the A45 AMG to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 0.1s faster as the top speed will still be electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). The first deliveries of the facelifted A-Class are expected to begin in September, while the order books will be opening two months before that.
