Loading becomes easier with the HANDS-FREE ACCESS option. This system allows the trunk lid or tailgate to be opened without any physical contact; all it takes is a motion of the foot in the area of the rear bumper.
In addition to their distinctive visual appeal, the LED High Performance headlamps boost night-time driving safety thanks to broad light distribution, a daylight-simulating colour temperature and low energy consumption.
The reversing camera with dynamic guidelines on the Media Display facilitates parking and manoeuvring. It is switched on automatically when the driver selects reverse gear, and shows the driver the area behind the vehicle with dynamic guide lines on the head unit display.
The CLA features Active Brake Assist as standard. This system gives the driver a visual warning about an insufficient distance to vehicles in front. If the distance continues to decrease, an acoustic warning is additionally sounded. If the driver brakes, the Adaptive Brake Assist can build up precisely the braking power required to prevent a collision. If there is no reaction from the driver, in the event of an impending rear-end collision Active Brake Assist can perform autonomous braking in order to prevent a collision or lessen its consequences.
