New Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class – Sleek as they come
February 4, 2013
The new Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class stands out as an unmistakable style rebel. With its breathtakingly sporty proportions and powerful, dynamic design – this progressive new model brings the avant-garde Concept Style Coupé to life.
With a record drag coefficient of 0.23 Cd, the CLA-Class is the world’s most aerodynamic production car. Boasting a range of optimised features including aerodynamic wing mirrors, serrated spoilers on the wheel arches and extensive underbody panelling, the new CLA-Class is as sleek as they come.
Tautly drawn surfaces define the exterior, while prominent lines and muscular edges add depth and dynamism to the side profile. Bold design elements include the frameless doors, the bonnet embedded in the front end with powerdomes and the diamond-look grille.
Inside, sports styling and high-grade materials feature throughout. From the “cool effect” silver galvanised trim, to the black piano-lacquer finish on the freestanding display screen – this striking interior is set to impress.
High-torque turbocharged engines deliver maximum driving enjoyment, while optional sports suspension and 4MATIC, the newly developed all-wheel drive system, both offer enhanced driving dynamics.
Efficiency is impressive too with fuel-saving ECO start/stop as standard, plus all petrol-engine variants and the top diesel variant already meeting the stringent Euro 6 emission standards taking effect in 2014.
The new CLA-Class comes with advanced assistance systems as standard, including the radar-based COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST and ATTENTION ASSIST for detecting driver fatigue.
Topping off this impressive package is the latest multimedia technology, including COMAND online with full iPhone integration for seamless operation – even while driving. Further highlights include Siri voice control and Glympse real-time location sharing for the ultimate in mobile communications.
Five lines and packages are available to individualise the CLA-Class. Prices start at £24,693 for the CLA-Class 180.
