Mercedes A-Class Facelift (2022): That will change!

Mercedes is giving the A-Class a facelift! The fourth generation of the A-Class did not come onto the market until spring 2018. After the predecessor, the W 176, had taken a clear step away from the retired image and towards the sporty compact, the W 177 picked up exactly there. With the newly introduced MBUX multimedia system, the A-Class not only revolutionized the compact class. To this day, the frequently updated MBUX is still considered a benchmark in many areas.

Visually, no major changes are to be expected with the facelift

Now Mercedes is preparing the A-Class for the second model cycle before. The first Erlkönige were spotted as early as March 2021. AUTO BILD created an illustration based on this. This shows that the visual changes are likely to be manageable. Probably the compact one new light signatures front and rear, changed aprons and a revised grill. The already narrow headlights should keep their shape and Mercedes will probably not touch the beads and edges of the body. There next to the hatchback saloon prototypes have also been spotted, it can be assumed that it will remain in the program after the facelift.

Radar sensor in the grill indicates other assistance systems

The Erlkönige drive around with a radar sensor placed in the middle of the grill, this could be an indication that Mercedes is expanding the already extensive range of driver assistance systems. That The interior should remain largely unchanged, the widescreen cockpit is retained. It may grow slightly and individual functions for MBUX will be added. But we don’t expect the large portrait screen on the center console like the one in the C-Class and S-Class. For this, Mercedes could revise the range of decors and seat covers. the extensive engine selection of the current model could be adopted. In addition to four-cylinder diesels and gasoline engines, it includes three AMG versions (A 35 with 306 hp, A 45 with 387 hp and A 45 S with 421 hp) and a plug-in hybrid (A 250 e).

A-class prices could rise slightly
