Concept-car styling

Clearly, the pricetag is its second most attractive part.

The Concept Style Coupe set the auto show circuit abuzz with its dramatic 4-door coupe design and athletic presence. Showgoers had only one request: Build it. The CLA has brought an international sensation to fruition with nothing lost in translation, from its diamond-block grille to its frameless door glass to its sweeping taillamps.

Advanced aerodynamics

To the wind, it's almost invisible. Our apologies to the wind.

Simply put, the CLA is designed to capture glances, not get caught by the passing air. Its coefficient of drag is among the lowest not just in its class but the entire industry, cutting fuel consumption and wind noise. Beyond its incredibly low drag, expert airflow management enhances roadholding, stability and even poor-weather visibility.

Spacious, sporty cabin

Innovative in style, and stylish in its innovations.

The price leadership of the CLA takes nothing away from every other aspect of leadership that comes with the Three-Pointed Star. From its winglike dash and tablet-style color screen, to its high-back power front sport seats with memory, to its available Panorama glass roof and multimedia systems, it's a cabin that puts you ahead of the crowd.

New Sport Package Plus

The new Sport Package Plus. From its racing soul, to your racing heart.

Like every Mercedes-Benz, the CLA has racing in its blood. The new Sport Package Plus pumps up your own driving pulse with functional and visual enhancements to its brakes, exhaust, chassis and body. And to make sure your rapidly-beating hearts meet as one, its cockpit embraces you in exclusively sporty fitments with racy red details.


Turbocharged power

At red lights, it turns green. At green lights, it turns red-blooded.

Beneath the "power dome" hood of the CLA250 awaits a new era of performance. An all-new 208-hp turbo inline-4 leaps ahead with 3rd-generation Direct Injection and rapid-multispark ignition. ECO Start/Stop automatically shuts the engine off at red lights to save fuel. It eagerly fires back to life the instant you lift your foot from the brake.

Dual-clutch 7-speed

Dual clutches, seven quick speeds. Twin shift paddles, no clutch pedal.

The fuel-efficiency and fun of a manual. The relaxing comfort of an automatic. The 7-speed DCT transmission gives you both. The racing-derived dual-clutch design makes every shift lightning-quick yet liquid-smooth. Three driving modes (ECO, Sport and Manual) and shift paddles on the steering wheel let you take the power in your hands.

The 355-hp CLA45 AMG 4MATIC

Two hands put it together. Three letters put it out front.

The first 4-cylinder AMG ever is racing toward America. To celebrate, AMG is bestowing its handcrafted engine the most power of any 4-cylinder in production. Just in case the sharpened suspension, massive brakes, iconic wheels, performance-focused 4MATIC®, 3-stage ESP® and snarling exhaust don't drive the point home in, say, 4.4 seconds.

Stated rates of acceleration are estimated based upon manufacturer's track results and may vary depending on model, environmental and road surface conditions, driving style, elevation and vehicle load.

4MATIC all-wheel drive

Turns torque into traction, and corners into action.

Quick to respond, lighter in weight and remarkably fuel-efficient, the new-generation 4MATIC® all-wheel drive can take the CLA250 to higher levels of sporty agility and all-season confidence. As the grip changes at each wheel, 4MATIC can instantly and infinitely send up to 50 percent of the engine's torque to the rear wheels, on demand.


Endlessly entertaining

The world is your playground. And your playlist, too.

From standard Bluetooth® wireless audio streaming to the available COMAND® navigation and innovative, integrated accessories, the CLA can bring you virtually endless entertainment and countless ways to make getting anywhere easier. And with 450 watts of available harman/kardon LOGIC7® surround sound, you won't miss a beat.

Safer, easier driving

Traffic tamer. Drift defender. Multilane multitasker.

The optional Driver Assistance Package's advanced technology helps make highway driving easier and safer. Blind Spot Assist and Lane Keeping Assist help alert you if you're about to change lanes when you shouldn't. DISTRONIC PLUS® is radar-based cruise control that automatically adapts your speed to traffic ahead, even if it slows to a stop.

Blind Spot Assist may not be sufficient to avoid all accidents involving vehicles in your blind spot and does not estimate the speed of approaching vehicles. It should not be used as a sole substitute for driver awareness and checking of surrounding traffic conditions.

Driving while drowsy or distracted is dangerous and must be avoided. Lane Keeping Assist may be insufficient to alert a fatigued or distracted driver of lane drift and cannot be relied on to avoid an accident or serious injury.

DISTRONIC PLUS® adaptive cruise control is no substitute for active driving involvement. It does not react to stationary objects, nor recognize or predict the curvature and lane layout of the road or the movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver´s responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the DISTRONIC Proximity Warning System before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely.
