Concept-car styling

The art of seduction. At a price reduction.

The Concept Style Coupe set the auto show circuit abuzz with its dramatic design and athletic presence. Showgoers had only one request: Build it. The CLA brings an international sensation to life with nothing lost in translation, from its diamond-block grille to its frameless door glass to its sweeping taillamps, all at a down-to-earth price.

Advanced aerodynamics

Eye-catching style. Wind-cheating shape.

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

A cabin that's a step ahead. And a cut above.

The true value of the CLA is how it delivers the luxury leadership and advanced innovation that earn a car the Three-Pointed Star. From its winglike dash, sleek color screen and high-back power front sport seats, to its available Panorama glass roof and multimedia systems, the CLA cabin sets you apart from, and ahead of, the crowd.

Sport Package Plus

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

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


Performance

Turbocharged power

Goes green at red lights. Gets red-blooded at green lights.

Beneath the "power dome" hood of the CLA250 awaits a powerplant for a new era. A 208-hp turbo inline-4 turns less fuel into more torque with 3rd-generation Direct Injection and rapid-multispark ignition. ECO Start/Stop automatically stops the engine at red lights to save fuel. It eagerly fires back to life the instant you're ready to go.

Dual-clutch 7-speed

Seven quick speeds. Twin shift paddles.

The fuel-efficiency and fun of a manual with the relaxing comfort of an automatic: The 7-speed DCT transmission gives you both. The racing-derived dual-clutch design makes every shifts 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

Two hands build it. 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. Turns corners into action.

Quick to respond, light in weight, and remarkably efficient, optional variable-torque 4MATIC® all-wheel drive can take the CLA250 to higher levels of 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 power output to the rear wheels, on demand.

Insightful safety
2015-CLA-CLASS-CLA250-031-CCF-D.jpg

Watches the driver ahead. And the one behind the wheel.

Standard COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS uses radar to continually monitor traffic ahead. If it detects that you're approaching a slower vehicle too quickly, it alerts you to brake. It can even start braking for you, to help lessen a possible collision. ATTENTION ASSIST® keeps its "eyes" on you, alerting you if it senses you're getting drowsy.

COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS may not be sufficient to avoid an accident. It does not react to certain stationary objects, nor recognize or predict the curvature and/or lane layout of the road or every 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 system´s alerts before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely.

Driving while drowsy or distracted is dangerous and must be avoided. ATTENTION 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.
