Introducing the new CLA-Class

Combining head-turning coupé styling with the practicality of a compact saloon, the CLA-Class represents a landmark in automotive design, carving out a new niche all its own. Exterior design is simply breathtaking, from the distinctive diamond grille to the sporty twin tailpipes. There’s substance behind the style too, with the sweeping roofline and sculpted surfaces enabling remarkable aerodynamic performance. The drag coefficient of just 0.23 is the lowest on any production car. This not only enhances the CLA’s impeccable road manners but also contributes to its outstanding performance. A choice of two engines, one petrol and one diesel, includes the CLA 220 CDI, which can return up to 62.8 mpg* combined. In addition, drivers can opt for Sport or AMG Sport model lines, the latter featuring muscular AMG bodystyling and lowered sports suspension. Both offer generous standard equipment, ranging from sports seats to advanced safety technologies such as Collision Prevention Assist.

With its surging lines and energetic, expressive surfaces, the new CLA captures your attention and doesn’t let go. But its breathtaking looks don’t just set the pulse racing – they also give the CLA the lowest drag coefficient of any production car in the world. So it can slice through the air with minimum resistance and maximum efficiency. This unrivalled aerodynamic performance is complemented by dramatic styling cues across the vehicle. From the signature diamond grille and almost predatory headlamps, to the 18” alloy wheels, and the sports exhaust with twin squared tail pipes, the new CLA is impossible to ignore – and even harder to resist.

Slide behind the wheel of the new CLA and it’s instantly apparent - this is a vehicle that defies convention. Whether it’s the tablet display or the jet turbine-style air vents, the cabin is home to an array of distinctive design elements that underscore the car’s unique character. Motorsport is a clear source of inspiration, with sports seats as standard and striking details such as the twin-tube instrument cluster. The AMG Sport model goes further still with a sports steering wheel with flattened lower section and sports pedals with rubber studs. Materials and finishes are exceptional throughout, with a choice of Artico/cloth and black Artico/Dinamica microfibre upholsteries and premium quality trim elements such as nappa leather and aluminium.

In good hands

For your peace of mind, the CLA combines a robust chassis design with an array of safety measures such as airbags and sophisticated restraint systems. In addition, it features a raft of advanced technologies to help you stay out of harm’s way. Collision Prevention Assist, for example, is a radar-based system that helps you maintain a safe distance to vehicles or obstacles ahead. Adaptive Brake Assist ensures the most precise possible braking response in any conditions. And Attention Assist warns you if you’re showing signs of fatigue at the wheel. Also standard, Active Bonnet enhances pedestrian safety in the event of an impact, while optional equipment includes the Lane Tracking Package and Pre-Safe anticipatory safety system.
