The CLA front-wheel drive compact sedan was the single most important model from Mercedes-Benz’s extensive range that debuted at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. We’d rate the A 45 AMG a (very) close second, though; plus, the three-pointed star also decided to spray some of the 355HP mega-hatch sporty sparkle on the rest of its premium B-segment contender.
In order to showcase its new Sport Genuine Accessories products for the A-Class, Merc displayed an A 180 in “Polar Silver” with detachable body parts such as a front spoiler lip, rear diffuser and roof spoiler in “Jupiter Red”, along with a chequered flag sticker kit.
The Sport options also include the “Night” styling package, front and rear trim, a “Diamond” front grille, illuminated door sills bearing the Sport logo and 18-inch black and high-sheen alloys on the exterior and a sports, flat-bottomed steering wheel and sports pedals in the cabin.
Moreover, buyers will be able to further personalize their compact Mercedes-Benz with items such as a sports suspension kit, a sports brake kit with perforated discs and red front calipers and, if they feel like going for the full racing look, a “Track” sticker kit with numbers on the bonnet and doors.
You can view the options and their pricing (in Germany) as well as the image gallery right after the break.
