Cars of the Mercedes-Benz CLA family – sedan (which the manufacturer itself calls Coupe for some reason) and station wagon (with its own name Shooting Brake) – received planned updates in the middle of the life cycle. The changes are barely noticeable from the outside: a new front bumper, LED headlights are included in all configurations, the filling of the lights has changed and new options for wheel rims have been added.
But the changes are inside. For example, an updated list of available versions and a range of modifications by engines. Mercedes-Benz CLA cars are offered with gasoline engines of 1.33 or 2.0 liters with a capacity of 136-224 hp, which now have a starter generator with an operating voltage of 48 V – it adds up to 14 hp. when starting the movement. 2-liter turbodiesels with a capacity of 116-190 “horses” are an alternative. And the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 e hybrid can now use the battery capacity more efficiently, which is why the electric range has increased – up to a maximum of 82 km (previously it was 79 km). Depending on the engine, the Mercedes-Benz CLA model can have front or all-wheel drive, as well as a 7- or 8-speed automated manual transmission.
Similar implementation updates for AMG cars, which are now offered in two versions: Mercedes-AMG CLA 35 and Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 S. In both cases, the appearance has been slightly changed, the starter generator for the 35th version and the Street Style Edition package have been added: additional spoilers, stickers, body decor.
Also, a central 10.25-inch touch screen is now offered for all versions of the Mercedes-Benz CLA, previously a smaller display was standard. But the digital instrument panel can be different – either 7-inch or 10.25-inch. In addition, the MBUX system has been updated, a small niche for small items is installed on the center console, and a new AMG steering wheel with double spokes is also used. By the way, the AMG versions also get their own seats.
The start of sales of the updated Mercedes-Benz CLA car is expected in the spring. The price will be announced additionally, closer to the date of the start of sales.
