2016 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Refreshed With New LEDs, Fascias and Adjustable Drive Modes

Mercedes-Benz revealed the fresh A-Class this weekend at the Goodwood Festival of Speed — showing off the new AMG A45 among its brothers like the new G500 4×4-squared and the AMG GT-S.

This refresh for the A-Class updates the nose and tail designs with fresh fascias and LEDs. It is particularly convincing from the back — where even the entry-level A180 and A250 have a much sleeker appearance. The look blends the best of hot-hatch proportions with the fast and low-roof wagon style we always love.

A big mechanical change for the nw A-Class are adaptive and adjustable dampers, controlled via the new Drive Select controls to choose among four intensity levels. New and shorter gear ratios for 3rd through 7th gear of the automatic also promise a bit more urge at highway speeds and for passing.

As previously, the A-Class is not likely in the US market. But these changes likely preview updates to the GLA and CLA in the mid-term future.

For Euro shoppers, the new A-Class can be ordered from Wednesday of this week, with first deliveries promised for September 2015.
