The facelifted version of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class is currently being tested out as the model in question should be making its public debut later on this year.
Reports on Mercedes-Benz planning an updated version of the A-Class turn out to be true as our spy photographers have recently managed to capture such a model on camera, for the first time. The images posted below are showing a slightly camouflaged version of the premium C-segment hatchback which is getting covered front and rear fascias. The model in question is believed to receive a new front bumper, upgraded headlights, a modified rear bumper, different taillights, fresh sets of alloy wheels and probably some minor modifications made to the cabin. The same engine lineup is expected to be maintained.
However, despite the engine lineup will remain pretty much the same, with the current petrol and diesel burners, the top of the line version of the model, the A45 AMG, might become even more powerful as some rumors are stating. The vehicle should be getting a total of 375 HP (280 kW) from the same 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which should be enough to allow it to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.5 seconds. Its top speed will still be limited electronically to 250 km/h (155 mph). The current A45 AMG has 360 HP (256 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. The facelifted version of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class is believed to be officially unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, this autumn.
