Mercedes-Benz A-Class facelift spied image

The 2016 Mercedes-Benz A-Class has been caught on camera recently in a parking lot in the Netherlands and its minimal camouflage is showing us the updates.

Despite not being around for that long to need a facelift, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class will receive such a treatment over the next few months as the carmaker is currently working on such a model. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz A-Class will be a facelifted version of the current model and just like the one spotted in the images posted below, it will be getting some minor tweaks. These include the reworked radiator grille, the different front and rear bumpers and several other tweaks made to the exterior design which will give it a fresh look compared to the current variant.

The current A-Class is in its third generation (W176) and it has been based on the concept car shown in 2011. The production version of the model has been introduced one year later, during the Geneva Motor Show, and it is larger than the two previous generations, standing in at 4,292 mm in length, 1,780 mm in width and 1,433 mm in height. The new A-Class generation is offered in a 5-door hatchback body style and in a Shooting Brake variant, riding on the same platform as the CLA 4-door coupe and GLA crossover. The engine lineup in the model includes the 1.6L turbo petrol, the 2.0L turbo petrol and diesel burners such as the 1.5L, 1.8L and 2.2L, connected to either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed automatic.
