Despite the price, the A-class sedan has a long list of standard equipment. A panoramic sunroof, LED head- and taillights, dual-zone automatic climate control, power front seats, automated emergency braking, dual 7.0-inch screens (one in place of the gauge cluster and one for the infotainment), and more are all standard. Adding 4Matic all-wheel drive costs US$2000, and the options and features are the same across the board for the all-wheel-drive model.
As with all other Benzes, it is very easy to tack on thousands of dollars to the A-class' base price with myriad options. The AMG Line package, for instance, adds different exterior styling, interior trim pieces, larger wheels, and re-tuned suspension for US$2600—or US$2900, if you want all the trim to be gloss black. Leather is available for $1450, and for $1030 the front seats can be made heated and ventilated. A US$1550 Premium package upgrades the two screens to 10.3-inch units and brings some extra convenience features, while the US$1150 Multimedia package includes augmented-reality navigation. The US$2250 Driver Assistance package adds all manner of active- and passive-safety features like advanced adaptive cruise control with steering assist, blind-spot monitoring, and lane-change assist.
We're still unsure which variants and packages will be available in Singapore, but rest assure it will be on sgCarMart.com as soon as there is sufficient info.
Standalone options include a US$250 heated steering wheel, US$850 for adaptive dampers, a $990 head-up display, an upgraded Burmester sound system for US$850, and 64-color ambient interior lighting for US$310. The A-class sedan comes in nine colors, some of which cost US$720 extra, and there are six wheel choices, eight interior upholstery options, and four available interior trims, two of which are real wood.
