New Mercedes-Benz CLA Class Officially Unveiled

Adjust Comment Print

Inside, the all-new CLA-Class shares the same interior design as the other new compact A-Class siblings. The all-new CLA-Class shares the same wheelbase as the all-new A-Class sedan and hatchback.

The Mercedes-Benz CLA is back, despite MB's new A-Class sort of filling the entry-level four-door gap in the lineup. Based on the new A Class, the fundamental spec list is not a revolution. The new CLA has also been honed in the wind tunnel to have a drag coefficient of 0.23, very close to the previous car's 0.22 Cd, despite a larger frontal area. Finally, it now has a wide array of wheel designs that range from 16-inches to 19-inches.

The new CLA's body is almost 2 inches wider and longer than its predecessor, though the rear-seat leg room is almost identical to the outgoing model, which was already cramped. Boot capacity, interestingly, is down ten litres to 460. It uses a four-cylinder petrol engine to produce 225 hp and 350 Nm of torque.

The CLA was revealed in Sin City in Edition 1 launch spec (with all its associated stylistic bits and bobs), and the vehicle is fitted with the firm's 2-litre turbopetrol engine, rated at 165kW and 350Nm and mated to a 7G-DCT dual-clutch gearbox.

More engine options as well as an all-wheel drive configuration will be available once the all-new CLA-Class officially goes on sale. MBUX debuted at CES 2018 and we have since seen it used on the Mercedes-Benz A Class and B Class models since and it is Mercedes-Benz flagship development.

It works the same in the new Mercedes-Benz CLA Class as it does in the A Class.

We were impressed by the refinement, chassis, powertrain, and tech found in the new A-class, and the second-gen CLA looks to improve further on all of the A's strong points.

Mercedes says the system recognizes natural-language commands, such as selecting music or navigating home, and it can also be controlled through controls on the steering wheel, a touchpad, or the infotainment touch screen.

On the outlook for the new year, Schwenk said, "2019 is going to be an important year for Mercedes-Benz India, as we reach the milestone of "25 years of Mercedes-Benz in India".

It also no longer gets confused by auto occupants conversing, Mercedes claims. The MBUX system connects to the internet via a built-in cellular connection (data sold separately) to offer search-related answers to questions like "Hey Mercedes: Who won the college football national championship last night?" or "Hey Mercedes: Are there any Indian restaurants near me?" The information from the watch is fed back to the vehicle.
