These are the first pictures of the facelifted Mercedes-Benz CLA, which has been spotted testing ahead of going on sale towards the middle of next year.
Although styling changes for the CLA are minor, they're intended to bring the car in line with the rest of the facelifted A-Class range, which was revealed in June. A similarly upgraded version of the CLA Shooting Brake has also recently been spotted testing.
Among the styling changes to be applied to the CLA is a reprofiled front bumper and updated light clusters. The rest of the car remains largely unchanged.
Like the CLA Shooting Brake, the CLA is set to benefit from a series of engine updates, which are likely to improve on current fuel economy and CO2 emissions figures, while the car's suspension set-up is said to have been upgraded.
Among the new options in line for the CLA is the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission from the A-Class, while a new Dynamic Plus package will be available on the range-topping CLA45 AMG version.
