Question about future A220 possible changes
I have a question about the possibility of a different engine/transmission option for the A220 in the future. It is apparent that the upcoming GLB SUV (which is supposedly based on the A Class underpinnings) will come with the 2.0 liter turbo engine producing 221hp and mated to a 8sp DCT. Does anyone know if Mercedes will be upgrading the A220 to that new combination, and if so might it be as early as next year's model? I was under the assumption that the current A220 engine is just "de-tuned" to produce less hp and torque. My guess is that if they did do the upgrade the model designation may change to the A250? If anyone has any idea or information it would certainly be appreciated . Thank you.
