New Mercedes CLA raises the bar of automobile market
With its sporty proportions and a powerful, dynamic design idiom characterized 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 tail-lamps, there may be no car on the road offering such eye-catching style at such a competitive price range. Distinctive in looks and upgraded throughout the interior, Mercedes-Benz designers have intelligently honed both style and substance.
The new generation CLA is one of the most aerodynamic cars, wind-tunnel-tuned to enhance not just efficiency but road holding, 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. And it does.
From a standard new eight-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. On the face of it, the ‘Avant-garde meets Driving Performance’ is the motto for the Mercedes-AMG model CLA45 4MATIC. The AMG CLA45’s handcrafted engine pours out 375hp and 26.1psi of maximum turbo boost, the most of any four-cylinder engine in production.
It holds the road with torque-vectoring AMG Performance 4MATIC, 18-inch AMG wheels (painted in titanium grey with high-sheen completing the sporty exterior), and an available two-stage adaptive suspension. And with a 4.1-second 0-60 time, it holds its own in any crowd.
The Mercedes-AMG CLA45 4MATIC is a thoroughbred sports car, complete with its top-of-the-range 381hp four-cylinder petrol engine. Plenty of athletic features support this powerful set-up: from the AMG Sport suspension and transmission to the performance-orientated 4MATIC all wheel drive system.
For dynamic looks, the CLA45 4MATIC model has its unique AMG body styling with high-gloss black details on the front apron splitter, side sill panels and rear apron. The sporty, expressive design of the CLA is refined further in a facelift involving new bumpers.
LED high performance headlamps (GCC standard, optional for Levant) provide color 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.
