For years, the Mercedes-Benz CLA has been a model of trend-setting design. Now, it muscles up with another Mercedes-AMG entry.

The new CLA maintains all the poise of the original, with new levels of agility, power, luxury and intelligence.

The first thing you notice is the vehicle’s stylistic departure from its predecessor: Note the distinctive grille design, the front bumper with flics on the air inlets, the aerodynamic wheels, and the spoiler accent on the trunk. It’s clearly a sporty new take on the classic 4- door coupe. Within, a frameless entryway beckons you into an environment of technological wonder. High-grade materials like MB-TEX and microfiber DINAMICA complement sleek digital displays.

It’s the perfect way to accentuate the new MBUX media system. This intelligent and intuitive new technology from Mercedes-Benz allows you to speak with your vehicle using natural commands, and it learns from you over time to provide a truly bespoke driving experience.

But this is a Mercedes-AMG vehicle, so of course performance is key. Under the hood, you’ll discover the new AMG-enhanced 2.0L inline-4 turbo engine, boasting 302 horsepower. It’s been refined to provide greater efficiency and reduced friction. Driving dynamics have been further upgraded through an AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed transmission that allows for seamless transitions and rapid acceleration.

The Mercedes-AMG CLA 35 accelerates to dealerships near you later this year.
