AMG Line customers will benefit from 18-inch AMG alloy wheels, AMG bodystyling, Artico and Dinamica microfibre upholstery and a three-spoke sports steering wheel.
The 180 d uses a 1.5-litre diesel engine, which produces 116hp and 260Nm of torque. It delivers up to 68.9mpg on the combined cycle and emits 110g/km of CO2. It has a top speed of 125mph, and can sprint from 0 to 62mph in 10.5 seconds.
The A 200 is powered by a 1.3-litre petrol engine with an output of 163hp and 250Nm. It can deliver up to 51.4mpg and emits 121g/km of CO2.
A 7G-DCT automatic transmission is available as standard across all models.
There are a number of option packages available. The Executive equipment package costs £1,395 and upgrades the standard seven-inch central touchscreen media display to a 10.25-inch item, as well as adding Active Parking Assist with Parktronic, heated front seats and Mirror package.
For £2,395, customers can specify the Premium equipment line which, in addition to the Executive line, adds a 10.25-inch cockpit display – creating a widescreen effect, 64-colour ambient lighting, illuminated door sills, Keyless-Go, upgraded sound system and a rear armrest.

The Advanced Navigation package introduces augmented reality into the onboard satellite navigation. Using a camera located at the top of the windscreen, the infotainment screen overlays the navigation display with the actual road ahead, making for clearer, more obvious navigation. The package includes Traffic Sign Assist which automatically reads road signs, making sure the driver is always aware of the current speed limit. The Advanced Navigation package costs £495 and is only available in conjunction with the Executive, Premium or Premium Plus equipment lines.
