2013 Mercedes-Benz A-Class by Brabus

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 4, 2012

German tuning company Brabus unveiled a series of new parts for the 2013 Mercedes-Benz A-Class. Brabus didn’t make the car very different from the A250 Sport on which it is based. Instead of building a total high-performance model, Brabus focused on upgrading the style of the 2013 A-Class.

This is the logical thing for Brabus to do since Mercedes’ AMG is offering a boosted A45 AMG with a minimum of 295 lb-ft of torque. Brabus gave the exterior a new front lip that was tested through a wind tunnel to lessen lift at speed.

At the moment, Brabus is still developing a rear spoiler that decreases lift. Car owners can choose from any of the new 17-, 18-, or 19-inch alloy wheels available with Continental, Pirelli, or Yokohama tires.

On its back, there’s a new lower fascia fake air vents as well as an insert that has the same appearance as an aerodynamic diffuser. It also offers room for the four outlets of the new Brabus sports exhaust. Brabus said that the new exhaust will be both sportier and louder but with the annoying “obtrusive” note.

The new Brabus springs are created to be a match to the upsized alloy wheels, and enhance the handling while also putting the car lower by 0.98 inch. The interior changes are subtle.

Brabus installed stainless-steel door-sill plates with an illuminated logo, sporty anodized pedals, and anodized door-lock pins. Owners can ask for the seats to be reupholstered in any of the new Mastik leather and Alcantara materials. Brabus also offers other individual components to enhance the vehicles further.
