In addition, all external lights are long-lasting LED including the headlights, daytime running lights and rear taillight cluster.

Inside gets a choice of black sports seats in Messancy fabric with Artico synthetic leather trim with either red or green trim.

The City Edition package adds $1925 to the A180’s $38,700 retail price, plus on-roads, however Mercedes-Benz is offering the lot for $39,990 drive-away if purchased by February 28 this year.

The A200 City Edition features the same features A180 City Edition plus a host of extras including lowered sports suspension, Sports Direct-Steer system and Mercedes-Benz branded brake calipers with perforated front brake discs.

It also gains black and silver diamond grille and AMG body styling on the front/rear aprons and side-sills and Artico man-made leather/microfiber sports seats with red contrasting stitching, which also appears in the steering wheel and armrests.

Finishing the look is a three-spoke, flat-bottomed leather steering wheel, carbon-fibre look trim, AMG floor mats and brushed aluminium pedals.

The A200 City Edition pack adds $2370 to the retail prices of the A200 ($44,300) and A200d ($44,800). Unlike the A180 City Edition there is no driveaway-price deal.
