It’s always nice when you can have the best of both worlds, which is exactly what the Mercedes-Benz CLA 4-door coupe offers. It’s got the power, handling and sleek and sporty design of a coupe with the passenger space, cargo capacity and safety features of a sedan. The Mercedes-Benz CLA has received exterior enhancements including new front and rear bumpers, LED high performance headlamps and new light-alloy wheel designs. It’s been upgraded on the inside, as well, with new seat covers and trim parts, chrome-plated controls and a hands-free access system with the ability to integrate smartphones into the control system. Further upgrades have been made to the Mercedes-Benz advanced safety systems. These include driver assistance features such as active brake assist, ATTENTION ASSIST®, blind spot detection, lane keeping assist and the optional Distance Pilot DISTRONIC® cruise control, which can adapt to the traffic around you.
Popping the hood of the Mercedes-Benz CLA reveals something truly breathtaking to behold. Its 2.0-liter Turbo Inline-4 engine turns less fuel into more torque by utilizing a direct injection system with rapid-multispark ignition. This provides you with 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft. of torque. And the Mercedes-Benz CLA’s ECO-START®/Stop feature automatically pauses the engine at red lights to save on fuel while the Dynamic Select feature allows you to pick a mode to suit your driving style.
The Mercedes-Benz CLA’s power may make you fret about what you’ll be spending to keep the gas tank topped-off, but that’s not something you have to worry about. Remember when we told you that you could have the best of both worlds? Well, we meant it. Not only are you getting all that power, you’re getting it without having to break the bank at the pump. That’s because the CLA gets 26 miles per gallon in the city and 38 miles per gallon on the highway.
Some of the Mercedes-Benz CLA’s interior enhancements have already been listed, but that only scratches the surface of its luxuriousness. Its wing-like dash holds an 8-inch slimline touchscreen with capabilities such as Bluetooth® wireless audio streaming, HD radio and the available COMAND® navigation system. Additional optional features include the Logic 7® surround sound system and the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration systems.
