Mercedes-Benz A-Class facelift front

Alongside the range-topping Mercedes-AMG A45, the rest of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class family has been updated for the 2016 model year. A brand new entry-level model has also been revealed alongside the selection of visual and technological changes.

Exterior wise, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz A-Class range includes a revised front fascia. That new fascia includes subtly redesigned air intakes and a different diamond grille. Additionally, a set of new LED headlights the same as the A45 AMG have been designed. Interestingly however, they are optional for all A-Class models except the A45. Elsewhere, the facelifted A-Class includes a different rear bumper, new taillights and a different exhaust design.

Moving to the cabin, the refreshed A-Class range includes an upgraded COMAND infotainment system which is offered with a larger 8-inch screen compatible with Apple CarPlay and Mirrolink. The same instrument cluster as the CLA and GLA models are also featured as are modified seats.
