Mercedes has covered the front and rear with camouflage, but the changes are easy to spot. At the front, the A-Class is fitted with a new grille, a new bumper, and redesigned headlights resembling the headlights on the new C-Class. New taillights have also been added to the rear and the rear bumper has been tweaked. We don’t get a look inside the cabin, but we expect the MBUX infotainment system will be upgraded as part of the mid-cycle update.
As standard, the current A-Class is equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen, which can be upgraded to an optional 10.25-inch display. The facelifted model could get a slightly larger touchscreen and updated software. Both prototypes are based on the A-Class plug-in hybrid, which is not sold in the US. Unlike the current model, the exhaust pipes are hidden.
