Design

A dream within reach
2017-CLA-CLASS-PAGE-011-CCF-D.jpg

Style to make you look. Substance that you'll like.

With a show-car shape and seductive new 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. Carves through the corners.

Simply put, the CLA is designed to capture admiring eyes, not get caught by the passing air. It's one of the most aerodynamic cars on the road, wind-tunnel-tuned to enhance not just efficiency but roadholding, stability and even poor-weather visibility. Freshly redesigned lower bodywork hones its shape to an even sharper edge.

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 the Star in its grille. From its winglike dash, larger 8-inch slimline screen and high-back power front sport seats, to its available Panorama 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

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 advanced Direct Injection and rapid-multispark ignition. ECO Start/Stop automatically pauses the engine at red lights to save fuel. DYNAMIC SELECT lets you dial in a mode to fit your driving mood.

Dual-clutch 7-speed
2017-CLA-CLASS-PAGE-009-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. 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
2017-CLA-CLASS-PAGE-011-CCF-D.jpg

The most powerful four. Thoroughly bred to perform.

The AMG CLA45's handcrafted engine pours out 375 hp and 26.1 psi of maximum turbo boost, the most of any 4-cylinder engine in production. It holds the road with torque-vectoring AMG Performance 4MATIC®, 18-inch AMG® wheels, and an available 2-stage adaptive suspension. And with a 4.1-second 0-60 time, it holds its own in any crowd.

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
2017-CLA-CLASS-PAGE-007-CCF-D.jpg

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
2017-CLA-CLASS-PAGE-006-CCF-D.jpg

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

Standard radar-based Active Brake Assist with autonomous braking can help reduce collisions with traffic ahead. ATTENTION ASSIST® to help sense a drowsy driver. Available Blind Spot and Lane Keeping Assists help make highway driving easier and safer. And optional Distance Pilot DISTRONIC® cruise control can slow, stop and go with the flow.

Active Brake 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. See Operator's Manual for system's operating speeds and additional information and warnings.

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.Distance Pilot DISTRONIC adaptive cruise control is no substitute for active driving involvement. It does not adapt cruising speed in response to stationary objects, nor does it predict the curvature and lane layout of the road ahead 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 system's alerts before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake maintenance, and tire and road conditions.
