The “CLA Edition 1” will only be available for twelve months. The model, which can be combined with any engine, has exclusive equipment which includes amongst other things the NEON ART interior with upholstery in leather and black microfibre DINAMICA with yellow contrasting topstitching. The Edition 1 can be ordered immediately at a starting price of 35,402.50 euros (CLA 180 Edition 1).

With the CLA-Class, Mercedes-Benz continues its series of extraordinary Edition 1 special models. Limited to one year after its launch, the Edition 1 combines special equipment which highlights the sportiness and exclusivity of the four-door coupé. This includes paintwork in either mountain grey, cosmos black, night black, cirrus white or designo polar silver magno (expected to be available from the third quarter of 2013). AMG front and rear aprons as well as side sill panels in combination with the black painted multi-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels provide for a powerful appearance. The diamond radiator grille boasts a black fin and chrome inserts. Bi-xenon headlamps are standard as too is the lowered sports suspension.

The NEON ART interior is exclusive to this special model. The sports seats are upholstered in leather and black microfibre DINAMICA whilst yellow stitching creates a very special contrast. The instrument panel and the beltlines are in ARTICO man-made leather with yellow stitching in a wrap-around look. Trim elements in aluminium with a light longitudinal grain and a 3-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel in nappa leather with a flattened bottom section and perforations in the grip area complete the dynamic appearance.
