Available colors include Rosé Grey, Deep White, Yacht Blue, Tobacco Brown and Mystic Red.
The Manufacturing Interior Package includes a few extra touches. There is an illuminated doorway plate. The Manufacturing logo appears in chrome on the center console.
If the customer doesn’t want a full interior upgrade, there’s the Emblem Package. It is available with a standard cabin with black seat upholstery and black carpeting. Updates include embroidered Mercedes-Benz stars on the head pillows and floor mats.
