The new generation CLA

An exceptional style rebel that surpasses all norms and expectations.

With its sporty proportions and a powerful, dynamic design idiom characterised by sensuously rounded contours, the new generation Mercedes-Benz CLA is unmistakable. Its dynamic character is emphasized by its sleek coupe-esque appearance and spacious interior that offers room for five.. From its diamond radiator grille with pins in chrome (black pins for Levant only) to its LED taillamps, there may be no car on the road offering such eye-catching style at such an eye-opening price. Distinctive in looks and upgraded throughout the interior, Mercedes-Benz designers have honed both style and substance.

“With a show-car shape and seductive details, the CLA's style is rebellious with an irresistible aura. It is a car that is edgy, stands out from the mainstream and appeals to modern day customers who put style first. With these attributes, the new generation CLA was practically made for the Middle East,” said Lennart Mueller-Teut, Head of Marketing & Communications at Mercedes-Benz Cars Middle East.

The new generation CLA is one of the most aerodynamic cars with wind-tunnel-tuned to enhance not just efficiency but roadholding, stability and poor-weather visibility. Freshly redesigned lower bodywork refines its shape to an even sharper edge. Simply put, the CLA is designed to capture admiring eyes on the road.

The interior: slimmer display, new trim parts, chrome-plated controls

From a standard new 8-inch screen, Bluetooth® wireless audio streaming and HD Radio™ stations to the available COMAND® navigation, the CLA makes getting anywhere easier, , smoother and more pleasurable.. And with options like 450 watts of harman/kardon LOGIC7® surround sound, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto, you will not miss a beat.

Meticulous attention to detail is also evident from the silver chrome finish of the controls to the fascia and switches in the doors for the electrically adjustable seats, as well as from the chrome surround of the stowage compartment in the centre console.

Latest AMG design idiom: CLA 45 4MATIC

"Avant-garde meets Driving Performance" is the motto for the Mercedes-AMG models CLA 45 4MATIC. 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.

The sporty, expressive design of the CLA is refined further in a facelift involving new bumpers and new light-alloy wheels. LED High Performance headlamps (GCC Standard, optional for Levant) provide colour temperatures that are closer to that of daylight than xenon headlamps, making it more restful on the eyes and providing relief to the driver at night. The LED High Performance headlamps are combined with automatic intensity control tail lights that reduce the dazzling effect for surrounding vehicles
