Mercedes-Benz introduces GLA180 Urban, B180 and E200 Sport editions

Special editions are an age-old tradition. After all, who wants to get just a regular base model? That’s especially true in the luxury car market, so Mercedes-Benz has picked some highlights from its range of option packages and given some of its entry-level models more showroom appeal with special edition models featuring drive-away prices. The GLA180 Urban Edition, B180 Sport Edition and E200 Sport Edition sedan join the recently introduced C200 Sport Edition sedan and coupe.

2021 Mercedes-Benz EQA spied

The Mercedes-Benz EQA SUV has been spied charging in a German garage, revealing hints of its GLA-derived design. The all-electric crossover will be built on Mercedes-Benz's MFA II platform, and is expected to offer an electric range around 482km when it launches in 2021. As with the EQC and GLC, the EQA appears to share its basic silhouette with the GLA – at least, if our recent prototype drive is a guide – but will likely differentiate itself with unique trim and lighting elements.
