The A-Class may not be the hottest model that Mercedes-Benz has to offer, but the German luxury car builder’s resident hatchback is certainly worthy of a few tunes. At least, that’s how RevoZport feels about it.
With this, the folks from RevoZport present to you the RZA-290 kit, which is chock-full of aero components to make your 2013 A200 and A250 with the AMG body kit look even better. Over the course of six months RevoZport designers and builders developed: a front splitter; canards to help direct airflow to the oil cooler and radiator; side skirts to add a little downforce along the side of the hot hatch; and a carbon-fiber hood with vents for lowered weight and optimal cooling.
Around the backside, the tuner added in a revised diffuser with quad exhaust tips peeking out, a 3D under spoiler that is available in red or carbon to add some extra downforce, and a massive GT wing to push the backside even harder toward the tarmac and add a pretty bad-ass look.
No tune worth a hill of beans is complete with a few extra ponies, and RevoZport is not one to disappoint. The tuner added in a piggy-back ECU remap that you can remove, if needed; a carbon-fiber air-intake system; and a full exhaust system that includes a downpipe and high-flow cat made from stainless steel and the rest made from lightweight titanium. This tune is good enough to take the A250 - sorry, the A200 is left out of this part - from its base 211 horsepower to 290 horsepower.

Mean Front End
All things start up front with the mean-looking front splitter – available in red or carbon - that not only adds a bit of aggressiveness to the hatch, but also adds some much-needed downforce to the front end. The carbon canards on each side of the front skirt direct the airflow into the air intakes and over the radiator, helping keep things cool in the process.
Additionally, you can opt for the stylish Diamond Carbon Grille for even more aggressiveness.
Functional Side Skirts
Side skirts often get overlooked, but when a tuner shapes them just right, they can add some extra downforce where you need it most. RevoZport did just that by engineering these side skirts to suck the A-Class’ midsection toward the ground, helping keep all four wheels planted to the asphalt. You can order the side skirts in either red or carbon.
Carbon-fiber mirror covers are also available for order, but are not included in any of the packages.
Reeling in the Backside
The downforce continues around the backend where a GT spoiler uses airflow to push the rear axle to the ground. Under the rear bumper, you’ll find a diffusor with a pair of stainless-steel exhaust tips staring at you, letting you know that this hatchback means business. Aiding the GT spoiler’s downforce-creating task is a 3D spoiler that you can have in either red or carbon.
