Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sport

Mercedes-Benz Sport is now offering a broad palette of products to personalise the A-Class. At the Geneva Motor Show the company will use an A 180 in polar silver with detachable body parts in Jupiter red to demonstrate the numerous details with which an A-Class can be sportily upgraded using Genuine Accessories. Mercedes-Benz Sport will also be presenting the entire product portfolio in their own exhibition area.

Reminiscent of the historic Mercedes-Benz racing cars, the designers of the A 180 exhibited in Geneva have combined the polar silver exterior paintwork with detachable body parts in Jupiter red. This striking colour was used for the front apron spoiler lip, the roof spoiler and the rear apron trim in diffusor look. The sporty appearance is underlined by a decorative sticker kit in chequered flag design with a colour gradient and fine lines. The look can be rounded off with racing numbers and a tinted sun protection strip with Mercedes-Benz Sport lettering.

The show car in Geneva shows numerous personalisation options for the A-Class which will all be available as extras for the first time. These include the aforementioned decorative sticker kits and installation kits for a two-pipe rear silencer, sports suspension and brakes with perforated brake discs and red callipers on the front wheels.

Also included in the Mercedes-Benz Sport programme are the "Night" styling package, front and rear trim, the diamond radiator grille, illuminated door sills with the "Sport" logo, sports steering wheel, sports pedals and 18-inch (45.72 cm) two-tone light alloy wheels in black and high-sheen.

Over the last three years Mercedes-Benz has offered a portfolio of elegant sporty products for personalising vehicles. The programme includes light alloy wheels, aerodynamic and optically-enhancing detachable body parts and interior products. These retrofit solutions accentuate a vehicle's sportiness and provide individual, elegant touches.

Mercedes-Benz Sport has been available since 2010 for the E-Class family; in 2011 products were added for the SLK and in 2012 for the C-Class family. Other model series are to follow. Most products for personalising the A-Class are already available and can be retrofitted by a qualified Mercedes-Benz partner.
