It combines special equipment and exclusivity, will only be available for twelve months. Available with any CLA engine, the Edition 1 will come with exclusive equipment like the NEON ART interior of leather, and black microfiber DINAMICA with yellow contrasting topstitching. The CLA Edition 1 has a starting price of €35,420.50, or about $47,000 at current exchange rates; no official U.S. prices have been announced however.
Highlighting sportiness, this four-door coupe has paintwork in either mountain grey, cosmos black, night black, cirrus white, or Designo polar silver magno, which is expected to be available in the third quarter of 2013. Bi-xenon headlamps come standard, along with the lowered sports suspension.
AMG front and rear aprons in combination with the black multi-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels give a powerful appearance. Combined with the diamond radiator grill with a black fin and chrome inserts, the CLA Edition 1 impresses. Inside the coupe, the NEON ART interior and trim elements in aluminum and three-spoke sports steering wheel in nappa leather wrap up the dynamic appearance in style. The Edition 1 is available on the CLA models 180, 200, 250, and 220 CDI.
