Design

A dream within reach
2015-CLA-CLASS-CLA250-013-CCF-D.jpg

Style that makes you look. Substance that makes you like.

With a show-car shape and seductive details, the CLA's style is irresistible. Its profile is sleek like a coupe, yet it offers room for five and the innovation that defines a Mercedes-Benz. From its diamond-block grille to its LED taillamps, there may be no car on the road offering such eye-catching style at such an eye-opening price.

Advanced aerodynamics

Slices through the wind. Looks sharp even standing still.

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 the crowd. And ahead of it, too.

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
2014-CLA-CLASS-CLA250-001-CCF-D.jpg

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

Beneath the "power dome" hood of the CLA250, there's 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
2014-CLA-CLASS-CLA250-006-CCF-D.jpg

Seven quick speeds. Twin shift paddles.

Fuel-friendly and fun like 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 shift lightning-quick yet liquid-smooth. New DYNAMIC SELECT offers different modes for your driving mood. Shift paddles on the steering wheel put power in your hands.

The 375-hp AMG CLA45
2015-CLA-CLASS-CLA45-AMG-015-CCF-D.jpg

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

The most powerful 4-cylinder in production is ever stronger for 2016, with a class-leading 375 handcrafted horsepower and 26.1 psi of maximum turbo boost. Just in case the sharpened suspension, massive brakes, iconic wheels, performance 4MATIC®, 3-stage ESP® and snarling exhaust don't drive the point home in, say, 4.1 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
Mercedes-Benz youtube

Turns torque into traction. Turns corners into action.

Quick to respond, light in weight, and remarkably efficient, 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 safety innovations include radar-based COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS with autonomous braking, and ATTENTION ASSIST® to help sense a drowsy driver. Available Blind Spot and Lane Keeping Assists help make highway driving easier and safer. And optional DISTRONIC PLUS® cruise control automatically adapts to the flow of traffic.

COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST 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. Autonomous braking operates at speeds up to approximately 65 mph.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.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. After braking the car for stopped traffic ahead, system resumes automatically only if traffic pauses for less than 3 seconds.
