Mercedes-Benz CLA is Fun and Compact

The entry-level coupe in the Mercedes-Benz lineup is the CLA, which proves that you don’t have to break the bank to enjoy all the luxuries of a Mercedes-Benz. The CLA has the styling of the larger and more expensive Mercedes-Benz vehicles but in a smaller footprint that will save you money. There is still more than enough customization with the choice of two engines and available 4MATIC® all-wheel drive. While the CLA 250 is perfect for the average driver, those looking for a bit more excitement will appreciate the AMG® CLA 45 with its handcrafted engine, 375 horsepower, and 0-to-60 time of 4.1 seconds.

The Mercedes-Benz CLA invites the eye with styling you will appreciate. It looks sleek and compact, yet you can comfortably fit five passengers. This vehicle looks smooth, and for good reason; it is among the most aerodynamic vehicles on the road thanks to Mercedes-Benz engineering in a wind tunnel that helped with efficiency, stability, visibility, and more. The only way to experience this type of affordable luxury is to come into Mercedes-Benz of Roanoke for a test drive. We are located in Virginia near Salem and the Roanoke Airport.

Get to Know the CLA History

The Mercedes-Benz CLA arrived as a 2014 model year as the new entry-level model in the lineup. This ultra-sleek four-door got some design inspiration from the CLS with its slightly larger four-door coupes. From its arrival, the CLA has embodied the styling and essence of the larger Mercedes-Benz models but in a compact package. The first Concept Style Coupe that would become the CLA in certain markets was shown off throughout 2012 at multiple international shows before the official CLA appeared during the 2013 North American International Auto Show. Virtual models were even later displayed, and customers first got to buy the CLA in September 2013.

The 2014 CLA began its history with a 2-liter turbocharged engine, which is still found on the CLA 250 with its 208 horsepower. While the engine choices have remained the same throughout the CLA’s brief history, the AMG® CLA 45 has gotten more powerful. It has always had the unique bodywork and the high-performance braking, but the powertrain was enhanced for the 2016 model year to get the 375 horsepower you should expect on the most recent model.
