Features revised styling inside and out

Mercedes has quietly introduced the CLA 45 AMG Edition 1.

Set to go on sale shortly, the Edition 1 is distinguished by a gloss black rear spoiler, graphite grey side stripes and matte black 19-inch alloy wheels. The car also has red accents on the grille, mirrors and wheels.

Interior changes are limited but include ARTICO/DINAMICA sport seats, a leather/DINAMICA-wrapped steering wheel and red contrast stitching. There's also an ARTICO-wrapped dashboard, special badging and AMG floor mats.

Like the standard model, the Edition 1 is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 360 HP (265 kW) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and an all-wheel drive system that enables the sedan to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and hit an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

Expressive and exclusive: "Edition 1"

The A 45 AMG and CLA 45 AMG "Edition 1" models are extra-special: the expressive composition of exclusive exterior and interior details generates a new level of excitement. The A 45 AMG "Edition 1" focuses on the car's affinity to motorsport: the Aerodynamics package with rear aerofoil, additional flics in the front fascia and a larger front splitter create an uncompromising racetrack feel. The paint finish in cirrus white harmonises perfectly with the AMG sports stripes in matt graphite grey on the bonnet, roof and sides. A cosmos black metallic paint finish is available as an alternative. Red accents on the headlamps, radiator grille, exterior mirrors and rear aerofoil leave a lasting impression. These are complemented perfectly by the red-painted brake callipers and the AMG multi-spoke alloy wheels painted matt black featuring special AMG hub caps with a centre-locking look. The 8 x 19 alloy wheels are fitted with 235/35 R 19 tyres all round. Further standard equipment for the A 45 AMG "Edition 1" includes the AMG Night package.

The CLA 45 AMG "Edition 1" features the Night package, red accents on the radiator grille and exterior mirrors, and AMG sports stripes in matt graphite grey above the side sill panels. The optional Intelligent Light System includes red accents on the headlamps. The AMG multi-spoke alloy wheels painted matt black with special AMG hub caps featuring a centre-locking look reveal red-painted brake callipers. The 8 x 19 alloy wheels are fitted with 235/35 R 19 tyres all round. The spoiler lip painted high-gloss black on the boot lid further reduces rear axle lift at high speeds. As well as being available in the standard colours cirrus white and night black, the CLA 45 AMG "Edition 1" can be ordered in optional cosmos black metallic, mountain grey metallic, polar silver metallic or designo polar silver magno.

Black and red dominate the interior of the A 45 AMG "Edition 1". Red contrasting topstitching embellishes the AMG Performance seats in ARTICO man-made leather/DINAMICA microfibre, the door panelling, the top section of the instrument panel in ARTICO man-made leather and the AMG Performance steering wheel in nappa leather/DINAMICA microfibre. Other visual highlights include the E-SELECT lever with embossed AMG emblem, the "Edition 1" badge on the AMG DRIVE UNIT and the AMG floor mats.

Sorry I forget, its not available yet in the US. I forget these cars always come to market in Europe first. It still is a great looking car.

It's not a "new edition" or variant. It's a launch edition car, when the car first comes into production you have the opportunity to buy a fully loaded version with unique styling, at a price.

You have to admire the way Merc launch their AMG models right away. The RS3 and RS5 were launched towards the end of the model cycle, when the model looks most dated...
