This week, Mercedes has added two new trim packages for the A35 and CLA 35 AMG models to celebrate the 55th anniversary of AMG. The Edition 55 package adds new design trim pieces and more equipment as standard. This announcement marks the third model to have the Edition 55 package, as the G63 Edition 55 was launched in March.
The Edition 55 package adds AMG aerodynamics package as standard, which includes a larger front splitter, large rear wing, new front apron and side spoilers to enhance the look of the cars. Both also come with the Night Package, which adds gloss black trim on a lot of exterior elements such as the front splitter, air intakes and window sills. The black theme also extends to the tailpipes, bootlid, model badges and more.
Both cars have the same engine, which remains unchanged. The 2.0-litre four cylinder petrol unit makes 302bhp and 295lb ft of torque.
Mercedes has not yet officially released the prices for the UK, but over in Germany the Edition 55 models add a hefty €12,614 (£10,613) to the list price. So we can expect them to be around the £50,000 mark in the UK.
