The Mercedes Benz A-Class and B-Class hatchbacks have been in India for a little over a year now. The relatively affordable luxury hatchback duo have given Mercedes Benz plenty to cheer about on the sales front. The cars now get a midlife makeover of sorts with a slew of new features added by means of a Edition1 special edition. The A-Class and B-Class Edition1 models have just been launched in India, with ex-showroom Mumbai prices of the two cars pegged at 26.17 and 28.75 lakh rupees respectively. The Edition1 models will have a limited run of 100 units each for the two hatchbacks, and white, silver and red colours are on offer.
The Edition1 pack for the A-Class and B-Class hatchbacks have been launched on the diesel variants of these cars, in keeping with the big volumes that the diesel variants garner vis-a-vis the petrol powered models. Both cars feature a 2.2 liter-4 cylinder turbo diesel engine, in a 107 Bhp-250 Nm state of tune. The diesel motor is coupled to a 7 speed dual clutch automatic gearbox that drives the front wheels of both cars. The cars are also available with a 1.6 liter turbo petrol motor, albeit without the Edition1 package.
The Edition1 versions of the Mercedes Benz A-Class and B-Class come with the following new features:
- Edition 1 body decals on the flanks
- Edition 1 badging
- Black wing mirror housing
- Panoramic sunroof
- Boosted ground clearance by means of raised suspension
- New alloy wheel design
- Electrically adjustable front passenger seat with memory functions
- Central arm rest for the rear seat
- Reverse camera
- Rear seat entertainment package for the B-Class
