Mercedes-Benz Malaysia launches the exclusive A-Class Urban Hunting Activity Edition
The Merc's hot little urban hunter
The Urban Hunting movement is a tagline popularised by the brand in local marketing campaigns for its compact car family—and now, Mercedes-Benz has taken it as a design inspiration for an exclusive edition for their popular A-Class premium hatchback. The Mercedes-Benz A-Class Urban Hunting Activity Edition is limited to 30 units in Malaysia only and is priced at RM205,888 OTR without insurance—or the same as the A 200 AMG Line.
This special edition however is an A 200 in Urban line with the Night Package. Within the cabin, one will find an Urban Hunting Activity Edition badge on the centre console while the seats are appointed in luxurious two-toned leather. The former also proudly states the exclusivity of the cute Merc as a one of thirty limited edition units.
On the outside, the eye is instantly drawn to the bold kicks—18-inch 10-spoke wheels. The aforementioned Night Package highlights selected exterior design features in black including alternating wheel spokes, wing mirrors and a beltline trim strip running at the bottom edge of the doors on either side.
Mechanically, the Urban Hunting Activity Edition is unchanged from the standard A 200 i.e. under the hood sits the same 1.6-litre four-cylinder paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission good for 156hp and 250Nm of torque. In essence, your own urban hunting will see 0-100km/h in 6.4 seconds to a top speed of 224km/h.
As for colour choices, the A-Class Urban Hunting Activity Edition is available in Cirrus White, Polar Silver and Cavansite Blue alongside the pretty Jupiter Red and Elbaite Green options seen here.
"The Urban Hunting movement is inspired by Mercedes-Benz's compact car that has been revolutionising the premium compact car segment in the industry. Limited to only 30 units, this Urban Hunting ACTIVITY EDITION is designed to celebrate the culture and diversity of our modern day customers," said Mark Raine, Vice President of Sales & Marketing Passenger Cars, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia at the Mercedes-Benz Urban Hunting x Electro party where the A-Class Urban Hunting Activity Edition was launched.
