Mercedes has announced a series of updates to the CLA, GLA and B-Class.

First up, the models can all be equipped with an adaptive damping suspension and a DYNAMIC SELECT system with four different modes:  Comfort, Sport, Eco and Individual (the GLA also has an Off-road setting).  The models will also gain Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink compatibility beginning early next year.

There's also a new entry-level B 160 which features a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 102 PS (75 kW) and 180 Nm (132 lb-ft) of torque.  It enables the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in as little as 10.6 seconds before hitting a top speed of 190 km/h (118 mph).

There's also a new B 180 d BlueEFFICIENCY Edition which has a 1.5-liter (1461cc) four-cylinder diesel engine that develops 109 PS (80 kW) and 260 Nm (191 lb-ft) of torque.  The engine allows the car to run from 0-100 km/h in 11.6 seconds before hitting a top speed of 189 km/h (117 mph).  More importantly, the model returns 3.6 L/100km with CO2 emissions of 94 g/km.

Moving on, the CLA Shooting Brake gains three new variants including the CLA 180 d, CLA 200 d 4MATIC and CLA 220 d 4MATIC.  The CLA 250 Sport and CLA 250 Sport 4MATIC also gain an upgraded engine that produces an additional 7 PS (5 kW).

Last but not least, the GLA 220 d receives an additional 7 PS (5 kW).  It enables the entry-level crossover to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 7.7 seconds before hitting a top speed of 223 km/h (138 mph).
