Mercedes-Benz has taken the wraps off an “Edition 1” version of its new A-Class Sedan, with the special model gaining all manner of copper colour highlights.
The four-door sedan version of the new A-Class was revealed in July 2018. And now, with order books for the new model opening in Germany, the Stuttgart-based automaker has revealed the obligatory Edition 1 version.
Set to cost German buyers an additional €7 021 (that's about R125 000) over the price of the A-Class Sedan (it will be offered in all engine variants and selected paint finishes), Mercedes-Benz says the Edition 1 will be available for “around one year” after market launch. Inside and out, this special model boasts numerous highlights in a copper colour, such as on the pins of the diamond-design radiator grille.
The upper instrument panel features contrasting seams in copper, while the central armrest gains contrasting (copper-coloured) stitching, which is repeated on the inside door panels. The floor mats, too, gain piping in the copper hue.
In addition, the Edition 1 runs on 19-inch AMG multi-spoke light-alloy wheels, complete with a high-sheen finish in (you guessed it) copper. Other standard features include the AMG Line exterior package, LED headlamps, sport seats with adjustable head restraints and ambient lighting.
