2016 Mercedes-Benz CLA Review

With its sleek eye-catching lines the Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe’s aerodynamic shape was designed from the outset to enhance handling stability and fuel efficiency. It may have coupe-like looks but its spacious cabin has room for 5 as well as a stunning panorama glass roof. Choose from 3 models starting at $32 050 for the CLA250 Coupe the top of the line AMG CLA45 Coupe starts at $49 500. Underneath its sculpted hood you’ll find an engine to match the CLA’s striking good looks. And when the going gets slippery 4MATIC all-wheel drive can take your CLA250 to higher levels of agility and confidence. Those wanting even more performance can step up to the AMG CLA45 and get the most powerful 4-cylinder in production. Inside the CLA is designed to cater to your comfort and convenience. You’ll get hands-free control of audio video and maps on the large 7-inch color display and central controller on the console. Many features can also be accessed via the integrated steering-wheel controls. Customize the look and performance of your CLA by choosing from a number of exterior colors or packages like the Sport Package Plus with its sporty accessories and details. Style AND substance. The Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe is your next dream car.
Golf bags and skis are no problem. Folding rear seatbacks allow you to expand the cargo capacity of your CLA while still comfortably carrying a rear passenger. From standard Bluetooth wireless audio streaming and HD Radio stations to the available COMAND navigation the CLA can bring you endless entertainment and countless ways to make getting anywhere easier. And with 450 watts of available Harman/Kardon LOGIC7 surround sound you’ll be able to pick the soundtrack.
Standard safety innovations include radar-based collision prevention assist plus autonomous braking and attention assist to help drowsy drivers. Available Blind Spot and Lane Keeping Assists help make highway driving easier and safer. And with the cruise control and optional distronic plus the CLA automatically adapts to the flow of traffic. Adaptive braking technology integrates an entire suite of advances in braking for even more safety. It’s all topped off with an advanced system of 8 air bags offering 10-way occupant protection.
You’ll get more power from less fuel with the 208-horsepower 2-liter turbo inline-4cylinder engine in your CLA250. ECO Start/Stop automatically stops the engine at red lights to save fuel and fires back up the instant you're ready to go. The 7-speed transmission combines the quick response of a manual the smoothness of an automatic and better efficiency than either. Selectable ECO Sport and Manual modes let you choose fully automatic efficiency and comfort intense response or shift-for-yourself excitement via the steering wheel-mounted shift paddles.
