Mercedes has announced a series of updates to the 2015 CLA.

Since the model is still relatively new, exterior changes are limited but include newly optional 19-inch alloy wheels with a "high-sheen" black finish.

Moving on to the interior, the ambient lighting system now features twelve different colors. New options include satin-finish light brown poplar wood trim, a KEYLESS-GO system and an infotainment system with an 8-inch display.

The car can also be equipped with Collision Prevention Assist Plus which provides a visual and audio warning if a collision is imminent. If the driver fails to take action, the car will automatically brake itself to prevent or minimize the severity of a crash.

Under the hood, the CLA 220 CDI has been upgraded to produce 177 PS (130 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. Thanks to the extra oomph, the car accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 8.2 seconds before hitting a top speed of 232 km/h (144 mph).
