The recently-facelifted Mercedes-Benz A-Class receives a new variant, the A 250 Motorsport Edition, a limited edition special created to commemorate the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team’s successes last year.

- front and rear bumper trim
- AMG rear aerofoil
- rim flanges

A huge success among customers, the W176 Mercedes-Benz A-Class is currently available in four variants in Malaysia. Powered by a 211hp 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, the A 250 is second in the hierarchy to the Mercedes-AMG A 45 4Matic, and below it are the A 180 and A 200 variants, both of which are powered by 1.6-litre mills producing 122hp and 156hp respectively.
