AMG CLA 35 and CLA 45

A race that knows no finish line.

In an old mill in 1967, two automotive engineers with a passion for motorsports began turning Mercedes-Benz sedans into winning racecars. Today, as the performance division of Mercedes-Benz, AMG continues to create victory on the track and desire on the streets of the world. Every Mercedes-AMG vehicle is the product of craftsmen, designers and engineers who live to test limits, and for a singular goal: Driving Performance.

2020 Mercedes-AMG C-Sedan Performance

Born to perform, developed to outperform

A Mercedes-AMG engine only starts with the state of the art. From there, everything from fuel pressure to exhaust routing is developed to quicken, heighten and intensify its response, and yours. Developed for AMG's racecars, patented NANOSLIDE® cylinder walls cut friction, raising endurance and power.


The most powerful gets more powerful

Two new 2.0L turbo engines expand the AMG CLA family in scope and power. A 302-hp liquid-to-air intercooled twin-scroll turbo rushes the CLA 35 to 60 in 4.8 seconds. A handcrafted 382-hp engine, the most powerful 4-cylinder in a production car, thrusts the CLA 45 to 60 in just 4.0 seconds. [3]


Quick shifting gets quicker

Dual-clutch AMG SPEEDSHIFT® transmissions can change gears more quickly than a human. Both the CLA 35's 7-speed and CLA 45's 8-speed offer a range of modes and manual paddle shifts, plus a RACE START function for the 8-speed. Partial ignition cutoff during upshifts and rev-matched downshifts enhance response, feel and sound.

Fine-tuning gets finer

AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you alter the shifting, throttle, all-wheel drive and more via a console button. Modes include Comfort, Slippery, Sport+, and make-your-own Individual, plus RACE on the CLA 45. The available AMG DRIVE UNIT places drive-mode controls with color displays right on the steering wheel. [4]


Goes from all-in, to all-out

Knowing how to send power to the pavement is the core of AMG performance, and the AMG CLA coupes are more brilliant than ever. Advanced all-wheel drive teams with agile chassis setups to turn AMG's racing experience in to your driving thrills.

Power unleashed, but never off-leash

AMG High-Performance Braking Systems rein in power and speed with 4-piston fixed front calipers grasping standard 13.8-inch perforated discs. The AMG Dynamic PLUS Package further endows the CLA 45 with 14.2-inch front discs and red 6-piston calipers. [5]

Well-damped moves, undampened spirit

Rigid, lightweight components and sport-tuning add up to handling precision from the double-wishbone front/multilink rear AMG Sport Suspension. Available AMG RIDE CONTROL can adapt the damping rate at each wheel in milliseconds. Three modes offer an ideal setup from daily commuting to track-day cornering.

Variable torque, for more consistent traction

Electromechanical clutch packs and constant calculation of driving inputs, speed and g-forces allow AMG Performance 4MATIC to quickly send torque to the tires that can use it best. Rear-axle torque-vectoring further sharpens the CLA 45's AMG Performance 4MATIC+. [6]

Track-tuned, to track true

With the AMG Dynamic PLUS Package, a steering wheel with AMG DRIVE UNIT buttons connects you to the AMG RIDE CONTROL multimode suspension. Red calipers call out the larger, composite brakes. And AMG Track Pace lets you record and analyze your track driving skills. [6]

A multisensory sense of command

A multisensory sense of command

The digital cockpit of the AMG CLA coupes is furnished and finished to make you feel at one with the car's performance prowess. Deeply bolstered seats, crisp displays and ergonomically designed controls support your every driving move, while also letting you and your passengers ride in composed comfort.

Each model offers no fewer than four 18-inch and 19-inch AMG® wheel choices. Exterior packages can add bold black accents and functional aerodynamic enhancements. [7] [8] [9]

Three AMG Performance options let you wrap their contoured rim in Nappa leather, grippy DINAMICA microsuede, or a combination of both. You can also add the AMG DRIVE UNIT performance controls.

Displays of precision

Standard dual 10.25-inch digital displays include a central multimedia touchscreen and reconfigurable instruments with AMG-exclusive design, readouts and menus. An available Head-Up Display projects key driving information closer to your natural line of sight. [10]
