New Mercedes A-Class Exclusive Edition revealed
Two new trim-levels have been launched for the Mercedes A-Class hatchback, both of which come with a more generous level of standard equipment
The Mercedes A-Class line-up has expanded with the arrival of two new trim-levels, called Exclusive Edition and Exclusive Edition Plus. They’re based on the car’s existing AMG Line Executive and Premium Plus specifications and they’re available to order now, with first deliveries expected to arrive in November.
The new Mercedes A-Class Exclusive Edition is priced from £31,305 and features special edition floor mats, unique badging, a new black radiator grille, black faux-leather upholstery and privacy glass. On top of this, there’s a panoramic sunroof and a 64-colour customisable ambient lighting system.
Like the standard A-Class AMG Line Executive, buyers of the new Exclusive Edition model will also get 19-inch titanium grey alloy wheels, a 10.25-inch infotainment system, a digital instrument panel and voice control.
Mercedes’ new Exclusive Edition Plus variant is priced from £37,320. It features the same level of equipment as the Exclusive Edition, along with illuminated tread plates, keyless go and multibeam LED headlights. There’s a few technology upgrades too, such as an augmented navigation system, front memory seats and an improved stereo system.
The Exclusive Edition is available with either a 187bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine or a 161bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine. The former comes as standard with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, while the latter can be specced with either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic.
Mercedes’ more expensive A-Class Exclusive Edition Plus variant is also available with the same 2.0-litre diesel, although buyers can also have the firm’s more potent A 250 petrol powertrain. The latter engine uses the same 2.0-litre block as the 161bhp, but power rises to 221bhp – enough for a 0–62mph time of 6.2 seconds and a top speed of 155mph.
