The Mercedes A-Class (the new one, not the old ugly-family-car malarkey) is one of the most stylish hatchbacks on sale. It looks sporty – even in SE spec – however it’s not exactly speedy, unless you get a 4MATIC A250 or A45 AMG. This is a shame because the A-Class’s dual exhaust trim and wide arches give off another impression entirely.
The good news though is that there is a way around that lack of oomph. The A180, A200, A250, A45 AMG and CDI models can now be tuned in a process that will take around an hour and all of these models respond extremely well to remaps because they have forced induction – 20-30% gains in power and torque are not unheard of.
A-Class A180, A200, A250, A45 and CDI remap gains
Starting at the bottom of the range, the A180 and A200 1.6 turbo petrol engines will see an additional 20bhp and 30 lb /ft from a remap, while the A180’s 1.5 turbo diesel engine and A200’s 1.8 and 2.1 turbo diesel engines will see an additional 25bhp and 40 lb /ft from a remap. These are huge gains that transform the way these cars drive. Moving up the range, the A250’s 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine will see an additional 30bhp and 50 lb /ft from a remap while the A45 AMG’s 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine will see an additional 40bhp and 50 lb /ft – and that’s being conservative. Each of these engines can handle a lot more power than they have out of the factory and we can unlock their true potential for you.
After a remap, our customers have noted that rolling acceleration is particularly impressive; third and fourth gears now pull like a train, so we have been told! And on the motorway, sixth now pulls like fifth and fifth now pulls like fourth versus before!
Additionally, our Mercedes A-Class remaps improve fuel economy too; with more power and torque, your engine won’t have to work as hard to get you moving. In turn, you will be able to use less throttle and drive in a higher gear – all of which will improve your mpg.
