German term or phrase: modellgepflegt
die modellgepflegte und verlängerte A-Klasse ist Beleg für den Mut und die Hingabe von MB, ein Produkt bzw. ein Konzept immer noch weiter zielgerichtet zu entwickeln.
The text is talking about a Mercedes Benz A class vehicle and 'modellgepflegt' crops up all the time. It is a marketing/brand strategy type text.
More examples:
die Kommunikation soll die Modellpflegemaßnahmen und die Aufwertung der neuen A-Klasse im Interieur und Exterieur verdeutlichen.
... eine Fülle von bekannten, aber verbesserten Ideen im Rahmen der Modellpflege.

Explanation:
I would suggest 'improve' or 'upgrade' and 'improvement' as the idea seems to be especially changes that make the model more comfortable or luxurious. At http://crverlag.de/buxte/_disc2/00000077.htm there is a discussion of things which were done as part of the 'Modellpflegemassnahmen' of a particular model, and in one place the concept is virtually defined:
... macht Modellpflegemassnahmen noetig, die oft schon als Fahrzeug-Neukonstruktion bezeichnet werden koennen.

model update


Explanation:
I'd suggest using "update" and "updated".

See the following:

The E-Class, which underwent a significant model update in both engineering and design in July, fell slightly short of last year’s sales volume. However in the second half of the year, the model update led to a strong increase in sales. As expected, sales of the C-Class sedan, which will be replaced by a new model in June 2000, were lower.

So there are good reasons to pay particular attention to its life-cycle and to ensure it benefits from the many innovations developed by Mercedes-Benz over the past few years. With standard-fitted Electronic Stability Program (ESP) window bags, the new diesel CDI engine, the enhanced interior and a host of exterior modifications, the model update will make the E-class an even bigger hit with our customers", said Roman Fischer, Managing Director Mercedes-Benz Passenger Cars in Australia
