Mercedes-Benz CLA revealed

Mercedes-Benz CLA revealed”

United States launch scheduled for May this year.

The interior, meanwhile, features a front end that has essentially been lifted nearly wholesale from the A-Class, complete with a wide, free-standing flatscreen display panel and turbine-style air vents. An increase in cess on luxury cars that came into effect after the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax was a major spoiler for Mercedes, as this was coupled with a five per cent hike in customs duty on completely knocked down kits to 15 per cent.

The new CLA Coupe is now equipped with the latest generation of Merc's MBUX AI system that allows occupants to "interact" with the vehicle. No, don't get me wrong, it will still slot below the C-Class. The dated dashboard has now been replaced by the MBUX dual-screen setup which made its debut in the all-new A-Class.

The new Mercedes-Benz CLA has finally been revealed, with the Stuttgart-based automaker claiming the second-generation model has the "potential to become a modern design icon". It's bigger in nearly every dimension and the engine is the same turbo-four, but the new vehicle, dropping in late 2019, will now come with MBUX, Mercedes' new infotainment system. This time around, this system packs in a lot of cool features like voice commands and interior assist that activates screens and control surfaces according to the hand's proximity. Gesturing towards the rear-view mirror can also control the reading light. If you've looked at the big CLS, you've pretty much seen the CLA. It will furthermore be offered with the option of Multibeam LED headlamps. Buyers will also have the choice to opt for alloy wheels ranging from 16in to 19in. At the Las Vegas show, Mercedes presented the CLA 250, which has a gasoline engine producing 225 hp together with a 7-gear dual-clutch transmission. Driving dynamics of Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe has been significantly improved as the front and rear tracks are wider with 63mm at the front and 53mm at rear with lower center of gravity.

Active adaptive damping has been added as an option, and Mercedes' engineers have adapted the ESP system for better cornering and handling.

Like the A-Class hatch, the CLA can be equipped with a comprehensive suite of active safety features to match the latest S-Class limousine with automated emergency braking and lane keeping assistance as standard on every model, while adaptive cruise control that is linked to Global Positioning System sat nav data and has semi-autonomous functionality in heavy traffic, as well as multi beam LED headlights, will also available.
