Mercedes Benz Cla 2019 Price Interior, Exterior Design, and Specs – Fancy a Mercedes-Benz CLS but find it too big and costly? If so, we have great news for you: the German luxury manufacturer is putting the finishing touches on its second-generation CLA four-door coupe. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class is a compact luxury car with finesse. Its low price is justified in its small footprint and interior, but it still looks great. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class is a four-door sedan that’s entry-level luxury, if that’s a thing.
2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA
Like the previous CLA, the styling can be aptly described as a shrunken CLS with A-Class design details. Only a trainspotter will notice the changes in the side window area, with a slightly larger rear quarter window and tapered C-pillar.
More apparent differences are found with teardrop Multibeam LED headlights (which mimic the rear lighting clusters), A-Class-style “predator” grille and smooth sheetmetal surfacing. Gone are the creases of old, with Mercedes-Benz moving to more ‘organic’ styling.
Mercedes-Benz CLA Improved Interior
One area that really let down the outgoing CLA was the relatively cheap (for a product with the Mercedes-Benz star) interior. Whilst not horrible, it never really exuded the same quality that you’d find in a C- or E-Class.
Thankfully, things have improved for 2019, with the CLA adopting the new A-Class’ slick twin-digital displays, an S-Class steering wheel, higher quality materials and an improvement in occupant space thanks to the car being slightly wider and longer than before.
Technophiles will enjoy the MBUX infotainment system’s customization with 64 different ambient lighting options, digital voice assistant and an augmented-reality SatNav that uses a camera to show the road ahead, whilst overlaying directions over the image so you never miss a turn.
2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA Price
With an aging but striking design, the CLA is an eye-catcher from every angle. The reasonable $30,000 starting price doesn’t stay that way for very long, as the CLA rolls out of the factory without much of the luxury kit that buyers will want.
2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA 35 And CLA 45/50 powertrains
Mercedes-AMG is readying a CLA45 (although reports suggest it may actually be named CLA50) with a new turbocharged 2.0-litre pumping out more than 400 hp (300kW).
The top CLA will feature a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and an new all-wheel-drive system, although whether it’ll have drift mode like its larger E63 sibling is yet to be confirmed.
Since Mercedes is currently working on a softer A35 AMG with a 2.0-liter turbo pushing out around 300 horses for the hatchback, we will likely see this variant being offered in the CLA as well, bridging the gap between the CLA250 and the CLA 45/50.
