In celebration of the A-Class’ success in Malaysia, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) introduced a special commemorative edition for the car – Mercedes-Benz A 200 Urban Hunting Activity Edition. Only 30 units of the special edition A 200 are made available. For the same price tag of a regular A 200, you get enhanced features inside and out.

Urban Hunting is a movement inspired by Mercedes-Benz’s compact car range that revolutionised the premium compact car segment in Malaysia. This A 200 Urban Hunting Activity Edition celebrates the diverse art and music culture that defines the vibrant city life in Malaysia.

The A 200 Urban Hunting Activity Edition wears the chic and less aggressive Urban-line exterior pack like the A 180 (regular A 200 wears the AMG-line). A night package has also been fitted that blacks out the front grille, wing mirror caps and rear diffuser. It rides on 18-inch 10-spoke light alloy wheels painted in black and high-sheen finish. The biggest giveaway that this is no regular A 200 are the Activity Edition badges on the front fenders.

Inside, the cabin dittos the one on the regular A 200. Only here, it gets a two-tone interior theme, Activity Edition insignia on the floor mats and an #Urban Hunting Activity Edition One of Thirty plaque on the centre console.

Mechanically, it retains the same 1.6-litre turbocharged inline-four as the A 200. Power outputs are rated at 156 hp and 250 Nm, paired to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. Drive is sent to the front wheels only. Sprinting from 0 to 100 km/h takes 7.8 seconds before arriving at a top speed of 224 km/h.

Customers can choose from five different exterior colours – Cirrus White, Jupiter Red, Polar Silver, Elbaite Green and Cavansite Blue. For the same price of a regular A 200, this A 200 Urban Hunting Activity Edition certainly is a stylish alternative for those who seek a little more exclusivity. Not to mention that the car can also be had with Mercedes-Benz Agility Financing.
