Khodrocar - The first-ever A-Class Sedan is scheduled to go on sale in the United States towards the end of the year, but Europeans can already order Mercedes’ smallest sedan. Starting today, the three-pointed star is accepting orders at home in Germany where the entry-level A200 kicks off at €30,916, which makes it €685 more expensive than the equivalent five-door hatchback. Interestingly, the latter can be had in lesser A160 and A180 flavors, but it looks like the sedan is not available for the time being in these cheaper configurations.
The most expensive version money can buy right now is the A250 4Matic from €39,525, but you can spend an extra €7,021 by getting the Edition 1 set to be offered for roughly about a year. Compatible with all engines, the fancy version comes with a multitude of visual tweaks inside and out, including 19-inch AMG wheels, LED headlights, ambient lighting, and sport seats with adjustable head restraints.
As with the North American version, Europeans have plenty of ways to spice up their A-Class Sedans by ticking one of the many boxes. There are leather, business, and driver assistance optional packages bundling a great array of goodies, along with extras such as a head-up display, a panoramic sliding sunroof, and a Burmester surround sound system.
For those not entirely satisfied with the 224 horsepower and 350 Newton-meters (258 pound-feet) of torque provided by the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine inside the A250 / A250 4Matic, AMG is working on a hot A35 derivative set to have 335 hp and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) if the rumors are accurate. Further down the line, there will likely be an A45 and perhaps even an A45 S with more than 400 hp on tap.
Meanwhile, customer deliveries of the A-Class Sedan are programmed to begin in Europe early 2019.
