Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) has announced the introduction of Night Edition versions of the C117 CLA 200 and X156 GLA 200, and these replace the CLA 200 AMG Line and GLA 200 Urban Line variants in the local line-up.

The Night Edition package contains an AMG Line exterior, and so in the case of the facelifted CLA 200 the presentation doesn’t really veer off much from the previous iteration, but there are minor embellishments brought about by the NE route – the front and rear apron as well as side sill panel inserts are now finished in matt titanium grey. Edition badging on the front fenders is another identifier.

The CLA 200 continues to ride on 18-inch AMG multi-spoke light-alloy wheels that were introduced with the facelift, while the GLA 200 Night Edition gets a new 19-inch wheel design – the previous five-spoke matte black/high sheen finish example introduced with the facelift has been replaced by an AMG multi-spoke unit, finished in black.

Inside, the Artico faux leather seats, floor mats, beltline and also the dashboard now feature white topstitching, and the seat belts get a white stripe accent. Elsewhere, the AC vent surrounds now come with colour-coordinated white nozzle rings, and carbon-fibre look trim makes its way on for the dashboard, replacing the brushed aluminium trim seen previously.

No mechanical changes – both the CLA 200 and GLA 200 continue on with the M270 DE 16 1.6 litre turbocharged engine offering 154 hp at 5,300 rpm and 250 Nm from 1,250 to 4,000 rpm, the mill being paired with a 7G-DCT seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Exterior colour choices for the CLA 200 Night Edition are Polar White, Cavansite Blue, Polar Silver, Cosmos Black and Mountain Grey, while the GLA 200 Night Edition is available in the same colours, minus one shade, this being Polar Silver.

As highlighted by the MBM announcement of its SST-based price list, the Mercedes-Benz CLA 200 Night Edition is priced at RM242,888, while the GLA 200 Night Edition goes for RM244,888, on-the-road without insurance.
