AMG body kits, interior upgrades, and sports suspension available, too.
Mercedes Benz has launched Street Style versions of its MFA (Mercedes Front-wheel drive Architecture) based products: the A, CLA, and GLA Class. Prices start at 27,965 Euros (INR 19.73 lakhs) for the A 180 Street Style, 32,665 Euros (INR 23.05 lakhs) for CLA 180 Street Style, and 33,052 Euros (INR 23.32 lakhs) for GLA 200 Street Style. The vehicles will reach the market on March 28, 2015.
The three Street Style versions are based on the AMG line, but offers model specific features, too. Common features include an AMG kit that comprises AMG body kit, AMG alloys (18-inch on A and CLA, but 19-inch for the GLA), AMG floor mats, etc. Multifunction steering wheel, exhaust system with twin-chrome tailpipes, Bi-Xenon headlamps, red stitching, Diamond grille (on A Class and CLA Class), heated front seats, etc. add to the list.
While there are no changes made to the engines, the A Class gets a Dynamic Handling package with sports suspension, lowered by 15 mm, and Direct-Steer system. The CLA Street Style gets the lowered sports suspension, too, but the GLA Street Style benefits from off-road comfort suspension.
These might be confined to Germany at the moment, but given that Mercedes Benz did launch Edition 1 variants in India last year, the market should welcome the Street Style versions, as well.
