German aftermarket company, Brabus , is the foremost authority when it comes to building tuning programs for Mercedes vehicles. Just look at its history and you’ll notice that about 80 percent of its projects involve Mercedes vehicles with the occasional Smart programs sprinkled in.
Its latest program for the Mercedes A200 CDI is yet another shining example as to why people go to Brabus when they have a Mercedes that’s ready for some aftermarket lovin’.
Compared to what we’ve seen from some of their past projects, we’d say that the performance mods given to the A200 CDI are relatively modest. But that doesn’t mean that it won’t garner some attention, especially since the A-Class is a popular choice among people looking for an affordable Benz.
So with the help of its BRABUS PowerXtra D2 kit, Brabus was able to take the A200 CDI’s 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine and improve its output from 136 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque up to 165 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.
On top of the decent performance spike, the German tuner also added a set of grey twin-ten-spoke alloy wheels while taking out the stock exhaust and replacing it with a twin dual-exhaust setup.
It’s also worth noting that with the 2013 Geneva Motor Show just around the corner, we wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if Brabus brought this car to their exhibit space.
