The updated Mercedes-Benz A-Class has been revealed ahead of a world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show later this year. The third generation A-Class (180 SE) boasts CO2 emissions of 89g/km and combined 80.7 mpg.
Feature updates include Apple Carplay and MirrorLink (for the tech-heads), a new diamond grille, redesigned front and back lights and new exterior colours. The Sport model also benefits from Mercedes Dynamic Select allowing you to choose between 4 driving modes.
If you want a diesel you will be able to choose between a 1.5L unit with 109bhp (A 180 d), a 136bhp 2.2L (A 200 d) and an upgraded version with 177bhp (A 220 d). Petrol drivers can choose from 1.6L A 180 and A 200, and 2L A 250 AMG with 218bhp and the 381bhp A 45.

“2012 was a year of paradigm change in the compact class. The new A-Class was a radical departure from the preceding series. And a successful one: as the most progressive model in the compact class, the model series has done much to make the Mercedes-Benz brand more youthful. With this model facelift we are now meeting the wishes of many customers for even more comfort with no loss of dynamic performance," says Ola Källenius, member of the Daimler AG Board of Management responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing & Sales.
