2020 Mercedes A-Class Exclusive Edition models launched
Plush new A-Class Exclusive Edition and Exclusive Edition Plus models start at £31,305 and £37,320 respectively
The Mercedes A-Class is now available in a pair of new luxury trim levels called Exclusive Edition and Exclusive Edition Plus. Both can be ordered now, with the first cars slated to arrive in showrooms this November.
The Exclusive Edition trims add extra equipment to the existing A-Class AMG Line Executive and Premium Plus models. The A-Class Exclusive Edition features a black front grille, unique badges and a panoramic sunroof. Interior upgrades include unique floor mats, synthetic ARTICO leather-trimmed seats, privacy glass and ambient interior lighting.
Other equipment includes 19-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, a 10.25-inch infotainment system and a digital instrument cluster. It also gets smartphone integration, wireless charging, electrically folding mirrors and keyless go.
The Exclusive Edition trim is available for two models in the A-Class range. The A 200 features a 161bhp turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine and a choice of a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic gearbox. The A 200 d is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre diesel engine producing 148bhp and has an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Prices start from £31,305 for the petrol version.
The Exclusive Edition Plus trim is only available for the more powerful A-Class models, so the starting price jumps to £37,320. Equipment includes adaptive LED headlights, model-specific 19-inch alloy wheels and an exclusive ‘Designo Mountain Grey Magno’ paint finish. Inside, further upgrades include electrically adjustable front seats with memory function, a premium stereo system, augmented reality sat nav and traffic sign assist.
The Exclusive Edition Plus is available for the A 250 petrol, which uses a 221bhp version of the same 2.0-litre engine in the A 200 with a seven-speed automatic gearbox as standard. The A 220 d also uses a 2.0-litre diesel engine but gets an increased power figure of 187bhp with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
