Muscular and sporty, the Mercedes-Benz CLA is crafted to sprint with speed and power, and turn heads while it does so. Transform the daily commute into an exhilarating experience by choosing the CLA.
Available as a stylish coupé and a grander shooting brake, the CLA is an executive car with a dose of sporting finesse. Both body types share an assertive front profile with an expansive bonnet. At its nose, the eye is immediately drawn to its wide grille with silver-painted louvres that’s home to the Mercedes-Benz emblem. The copious grille creates a flat-fronted shape that’s muscular and asserting, complemented by two large front air intakes moulded into the bumper. Its sides are equally as striking, with the windows edged by one complete frame in a slicing, almost semi-circular shape.
LED High Performance headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights give you sharper vision at night and make sure the CLA is recognisable. At its rear sits twin tailpipes that are rectangular in shape for a confident signifier of its power.
Mercedes-Benz’s signature interior design is instantly recognisable. Three air vents sit in the centre of the dashboard and instantly catch the eye. Draw your eye upwards and you’ll notice the seven-inch media screen that displays the media devices and driving assistance tools. The fascia is given an elegant finish with a silver-painted panel seamlessly integrated. To make all drives relaxing, every trim level has ambient lighting as standard, which sets a calm mood at night. Luxury automatic climate control serves to keep you and all passengers at the ideal temperature, while the front sport seats will keep you well-supported.
Those who prefer petrol can choose from four engines, and there are three diesels on offer. The most powerful unit is the CLA 45 4MATIC which boasts 450Nm of torque at 2,250rpm, giving you an acceleration time of around four seconds. While the petrol powertrains tend to pack more speed, the diesels are more fuel efficient with the CLA 200 d automatic delivering up to 70mpg.
Driving modes are standard on most trims and optional in the Sport. They allow you to choose between driving styles so you can make your journey as relaxing or sporty as you wish. The Sport and AMG Line trim levels get comfort suspension for a smooth drive, while the two superior options have sports suspension that’s firmer, for better handling.
An advanced braking system features ABS, Adaptive Brake Assist and a Hold function that helps you maintain control on inclines and descents. Acceleration Skid Control helps you to gain speed safely, and the ESP with Curve Dynamic Assist keeps the CLA in control when swerving around corners. Mercedes me connect is a system that makes it easier to make an emergency call or get accident and breakdown recovery quickly when you need it.
Through the seven-inch display, you can control all of the in-car entertainment, including any external devices like your phone or MP3 player when they are connected. Apple CarPlay™ lets you use apps via your smartphone, all of which can be controlled using your voice. A Garmin® MAP PILOT navigation system is standard on the 250 AMG trim and optional on all of the others, taking the stress out of finding your own way to destinations. Parking aids help you to slip effortlessly into a parking spot once you arrive.
