New A-Klasse leaked on the internet ahead of official unveiling

The soon-to-be-presented A-Klasse facelift has been recently leaked on the internet. Motor Authority managed to get their hands on one photo showcasing the 5door version of the smallest Stuttgardter. Visually, the changes operated to the design of the MPV are far more extensive than those we see on the B-Klasse facelift. The headlights, the new version-personalized radiator grille(Avantgarde and Elegance), the air intake, the fog lights, the backlights, the exterior mirrors and some of the side lines of the car-all of them have been revised, giving to the A a well-deserved elegance and style. As seen in a previous photo posted on the blog, the dashboard hasn't suffered major changes, but it is reported that new, softer & quality materials have been used in order to rise standards. Also new trims, like wood or aluminium, are offered for styling the interior of the car.
Technically speaking, the A will feature a new, eco-friendly version, called A 150 BlueEFFICIENCY, developing 95 BHP, which boasts with an overall fuel consumption of only 5.8 litres per 100 kilometres. Mercedes-Benz has also added the Start & Stop function to its A 150 & A 170 models;the most economical engine of the range remains the 82 BHP A 160 CDI diesel unit, with a high fuel-saving performance of 4.5 litres consumed over 100 kilometres. Expect for the official press kit to be released today.
