Exclusive, individual and sporty: These three attributes arguably best describe the extensive BRABUS enhancement program for the refreshed Mercedes A-Class of the 2019 model year.
Attractive aerodynamic-enhancement components in OEM quality, in concert with BRABUS Monoblock wheels with diameters of up to 20 inches, lend the compact car an even more distinctive outfit.
The BRABUS PowerXtra B 25 S performance upgrade bumps the output of the A 250 gasoline model to 199 kW / 270 hp (267 bhp) and the torque to 430 Nm (317 lb-ft), enough to accelerate the compact athlete from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.9 seconds.
Another specialty of BRABUS (Brabus-Allee, D-46240 Bottrop, phone + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777-0, fax + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777 111, Internet www.brabus.com) is individual interior design, culminating in a BRABUS fine leather interior crafted from the finest leather and Alcantara, every inch of it tailored perfectly to the customer’s preferences.
Always on board: the one-of-a-kind three-year or 100,000-km/62,000-mile BRABUS Tuning Warranty® (see BRABUS Warranty Terms and Conditions, updated July 2013).
The new BRABUS aerodynamic-enhancement program, which in a first step is available for the new A-Class models with AMG Line design, is characterized by sporty elegance. All components are manufactured in OEM quality from high-grade PUR material.
The two-piece BRABUS front spoiler is designed to bolt to the lower section of the production fascia. The flaps with raised sides play their part in further reducing front-axle lift at high speeds. The two BRABUS elements attached above the two horizontal braces are shaped to direct the airstream optimally to the side air intakes in the fascia.
The BRABUS airfoil on the roof ensures an optimal aerodynamic balance and an even more thrilling appearance from the rear. In addition, BRABUS offers a diffuser-look insert for the rear fascia. Tailor-made cutouts provide the perfect backdrop for the two BRABUS exhaust tips with hallmark styling on either side. Their stainless/carbon design makes them an extravagant visual treat.
BRABUS Monoblock alloy wheels increase the fascination exuded by the new A-Class and give the car even more agile handling. To this end, the BRABUS suspension engineers and test drivers developed tailor-made tire/wheel combinations with diameters of 17, 18, 19 and 20 inches. There are also exclusive BRABUS complete wheel with M+S tires for winter driving.
The largest available option for the Mercedes compact class features BRABUS 8.5Jx20 wheels in the three distinctive designs Monoblock F, R and T. BRABUS technology partners Continental, Pirelli and YOKOHAMA supply the matching high-performance tires of size 235/30 R 20 for all four corners.
BRABUS offers the world’s most extensive engine tuning program for Mercedes-Benz automobiles. The top priority of all engine developments is creating a perfect mix of high performance, outstanding ride quality, exemplary eco-friendliness and durability beyond reproach. BRABUS recommends MOTUL high-performance lubricants.
The first performance upgrade from Bottrop for the refreshed A-Class is the BRABUS PowerXtra B 25 S performance kit, which boosts the output of the four-cylinder turbo engine of the A 250 by 34 kW / 46 hp (46 bhp) and increases the torque by 80 Nm (59 lb-ft). The modification comprises larger ducting to the air box, and the BRABUS PowerXtra module, which provides the engine control unit with reprogrammed mapping for controlling the injection and ignition. It also retunes the boost pressure control.
A new output of 199 kW / 270 hp (267 bhp), up from a stock 165 kW / 224 hp (221 bhp), and the peak torque increased from 350 to 430 Nm (258 to 317 lb-ft) optimize the driving dynamics and the driving fun. A sprint time of just 5.9 seconds from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) and an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) makes the BRABUS-tuned A-Class gasoline model one of the sportiest representatives of its class. The BRABUS PowerXtra B 25 S performance upgrade is available for all current A 250 models with front-wheel drive or 4MATIC all-wheel drive.
BRABUS PowerXtra options for the turbodiesel models of the revised A-Class are in the development phase.
The all-stainless BRABUS sport exhaust system with actively controlled exhaust flaps is the perfect complement to the performance upgrade. This exhaust offers drivers of a Mercedes A 250 of the latest generation a wide range of exhaust notes from decidedly subtle to thrillingly sporty. It either can remain visually discreet, because it is invisible as on the production car, or be combined with the BRABUS diffuser and the four characteristic stainless /carbon exhaust tips.
Of course, BRABUS also offers a host of refinement options for the interior of the refreshed Mercedes A-Class. The product range includes stainless-steel scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo, BRABUS aluminum pedals and high-quality velour floor mats with BRABUS logo.
The company upholstery shop fulfils special requests for the interior with a BRABUS fine leather interior. To this end, the upholsterers process especially soft and yet particularly durable BRABUS Mastik leather and fine Alcantara with great love of detail. There are endless choices with regard to the color and design of the upholstery and to the extent of the work: The spectrum ranges from a completion of the production leather appointments to an exclusive BRABUS all-leather interior.
