2019 Mercedes A-Class Sedan Looks Sharp In Paris, But Do We Need It In The US?

Reveal / Comments

The Mercedes A-Class sedan debuts in Paris with Edition 1 model.

Following its online reveal for America back in July, the Mercedes A-Class sedan has made its European debut at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. The white model on display is the exquisite Edition 1 version that will be available from day one in Europe, which is clad in copious amounts of copper.

Distinguishing the Edition 1 from the regular model are two-tone multi-spoke 19-inch wheels and a diamond front grille. Inside, the top of the dashboard features copper stitching, which has also been applied to the central armrest and seats.

In Germany, the Edition 1 will command a hefty €7,021 ($8,115) premium but it isn't clear if the range-topping model will be available in the US. The regular A-Class sedan, however, will go on sale in America early next year, with pricing to be revealed closer to launch.

In Germany, the entry-level A200 starts at €30,916 ($35,752), making it €685 ($791) more expensive than its hatchback sibling, while the range-topping A250 4Matic starts at €39,525 ($45,707).

Both trims are powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four engine sending 188 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque to either the front or all four wheels through a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. These specs make the sedan more powerful than the entry-level A-Class hatch, which has 161 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque.
