... not just because this is the Edition 1 version.

The Mercedes-Benz A-Class Saloon is making its first public appearance in Europe during the 2018 Paris Motor Show. Not only that, but it’s sitting under the spotlights in the French capital in its limited range-topping form, the Edition 1.

Here's all you need to know about the A-Class Sedan:

Available from day one, but not in the UK, the special edition will be offered for a limited period of just 12 months. It has virtually everything one could ask for as standard, from LED High Performance headlights to 64-colour LED ambient lighting and sports seats benefitting from adjustable head restraints.

For those who say the Edition 1 makes no sense given its hefty €7,021 premium over an equivalent regular A-Class Saloon, we’ll just point out the two-tone multi-spoke 19-inch wheels and the stylish “diamond” front grille. Once inside the cabin, you’ll also notice the top of the dashboard has copper stitching, much like the central armrest and the seats.

European orders books are already opened for the automaker’s smallest saloon. In the UK pricing starts from £27,875 for the A 180 d Sport and £28,095 for the A 200 Sport. The A-Class saloon is available to buy now in two trim levels: Sport and AMG Line.
