2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe – Exterior
EVERY LINE WILL SEDUCE YOU. EVEN THE BOTTOM LINE.
With a show-car shape and seductive details, the CLA’s style is irresistible. Its profile is sleek like a coupe, yet it offers room for five and the innovation that defines a Mercedes-Benz. From its diamond-block grille to its LED taillamps, there may be no car on the road offering such eye-catching style at such an eye-opening price.
SLICES THROUGH THE WIND. CARVES THROUGH THE CORNERS.
Simply put, the CLA is designed to capture admiring eyes, not get caught by the passing air. It’s one of the most aerodynamic cars on the road, wind-tunnel-tuned to enhance not just efficiency but roadholding, stability and even poor-weather visibility. Available AMG® Line options add wheels and lower bodywork to hug the road even tighter.
THE AMG® LINE. FROM ITS RACING SOUL, TO YOUR RACING HEART.
Like every Mercedes-Benz, the CLA 250 has racing in its blood. The AMG® Line pumps up your own driving pulse with functional and visual enhancements to its brakes, exhaust, chassis and styling. And to make sure your rapidly-beating hearts meet as one, its cockpit embraces you in exclusively sporty fitments with red-hot details.
LARGER FRONT SPLITTER
The aerodynamic AMG® lower bodywork slices through the wind with a larger splitter underscoring the front air dam. It’s finished in Gloss Black.
18-INCH AMG® 10-SPOKE WHEELS
With a design inspired by the AMG® GT sports car, the ultrathin V-shaped spokes of the 18-inch AMG® wheels offer exceptional strength while displaying the massive brakes. The spokes and thin perimeter are machine-polished, set off by silver-grey inlays.
GLOSS BLACK REAR SPOILER
A Gloss Black rear spoiler adds sporty punctuation to the car’s sleek shape. It’s also functional, with a wind-tunnel-developed shape designed to enhance aerodynamic downforce when traveling at higher speeds.
2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe – Interior
INTERIOR INNOVATION OVERVIEW
A cabin that’s a step ahead. And a cut above. The true value of the CLA is how it delivers the luxury leadership and advanced innovation that earn the Star in its grille. From its winglike dash, big yet sleek 8-inch screen and high-back power front sport seats, to its available Panorama roof and multimedia systems, the CLA cabin sets you apart from the crowd. And ahead of it, too.
SPORT FRONT SEATS WITH ADJUSTABLE CUSHION LENGTH
Both front seats feature sport contours with deep side bolsters. A comfort-enhancing feature lets you extend the front of the seat cushion for added thigh support. All four outboard seats feature racing-inspired integrated head restraints.
14-way power front seats with memory
Intuitive, seat-shaped controls help you find your ideal driving position with 14-way power adjustment, including 4-way power lumbar support. A memory system for each seat seat recalls three stored positions for the seat, plus the power side mirrors for the driver. Both front seats also feature adjustable cushion length, for optimal thigh support and added comfort.
THE WORLD IS YOUR PLAYGROUND. IT’S ALSO YOUR PLAYLIST.
From a standard 8-inch color screen, Bluetooth®1 wireless audio streaming and HD Radio™ stations to the available COMAND® navigation, the CLA can make getting anywhere easier and going there more fun. And with options like 450 watts of harman/kardon® Logic 7®2 surround sound, plus Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto, you won’t miss a beat

SPLIT-FOLDING REAR SEATS
Individually folding rear seatbacks allow you to expand the cargo capacity of your CLA while still carrying a rear passenger. The release handles are in the trunk, so they’re conveniently located where you’ll need them, and can be kept out of reach simply by valet-locking the trunk. The folding center armrest includes dual cup holders.
With 13.1 cubic feet of space, the trunk of a CLA provides ample room for your groceries, golf clubs or luggage.
4-WAY POWER LUMBAR SUPPORT FOR DRIVER
For long-term comfort and lower-back support, the driver’s seat offers a lumbar support that precisely adjusts in/out and up/down.
2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe – Performance
Turns torque into traction. Turns corners into action. Quick to respond, light in weight, and remarkably efficient, variable-torque 4MATIC® all-wheel drive can take the CLA 250 to higher levels of agility and all-season confidence. As the grip changes at each wheel, 4MATIC® can instantly and variably send up to 50 percent of the engine’s power output to the rear wheels, on demand.
GOES GREEN AT RED LIGHTS. GETS RED-BLOODED AT GREEN LIGHTS.
Beneath the twin power domes of the CLA 250 hood beats a powerful heart. A 208-hp turbo inline-4 turns less fuel into more torque with advanced Direct Injection and rapid-multispark ignition. ECO-START®/STOP automatically pauses the engine at red lights to save fuel. DYNAMIC SELECT lets you dial in a mode to fit your driving mood.
SEVEN QUICK SPEEDS. TWIN SHIFT PADDLES.
Fuel-friendly and fun like a manual, with the relaxing comfort of an automatic: The 7-speed DCT transmission gives you both. The racing-derived dual-clutch design makes every shift lightning-quick yet liquid-smooth. DYNAMIC SELECT offers different modes for your driving mood. Shift paddles on the steering wheel put power in your hands.
THE MOST POWERFUL 4-CYLINDER. THOROUGHLY BRED TO PERFORM.
The AMG® CLA 45’s handcrafted engine pours out 375 hp and 26.1 psi of maximum turbo boost, the most of any 4-cylinder engine in production. It holds the road with torque-vectoring AMG® Performance 4MATIC®, 18-inch AMG® wheels, and an available 2-stage adaptive suspension. And with a 4.1-second 0-60 time, it holds its own in any crowd.
An ECO-START®/STOP system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations, to save fuel and reduce emissions. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for immediate acceleration response. The ECO-START®/STOP system can also be shut off by the driver at any time.
A pair of paddles strategically positioned behind the upper steering-wheel spokes allows you to manually upshift and downshift the 7-speed DCT transmission with just a flick of your fingers..
As enticing as it is intriguing, the AMG® E-SELECT gear lever is a sculpture of aluminum and leather. Embossed with the AMG® crest, it offers electronic shifting directly between R, N and D with a gentle nudge. Pressing a dedicated “P” button activates the parking lock.
AMG® SPORT EXHAUST SYSTEM
The AMG® Sport Exhaust System enhances performance while generating an unforgettable sound from the four polished-chrome tailpipes. An electronically controlled internal butterfly valve responds to engine rpm and throttle loads, to serenade acceleration and higher revs with a rewardingly throaty growl, yet offer a pleasingly mellow tone during relaxed, quiet cruising.
2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe – Safety
Watches the driver ahead. And the one behind the wheel. Standard Active Brake Assist uses radar to help you avoid some frontal collisions, and can even initiate braking. ATTENTION ASSIST® can help sense a drowsy driver. Available Blind Spot and Lane Keeping Assists help make highway driving easier and safer. And optional Distance Pilot DISTRONIC® cruise control can slow, stop and go with the flow.
An advanced system of 8 airbags includes dual two-stage front airbags, front side-impact head/torso airbags, dual front knee airbags, and side curtain airbags for both seating rows.
ACTIVE BRAKE ASSIST
Radar-based technology alerts you if you’re approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as the driver starts to brake, Active Brake Assist can automatically provide an appropriate level of braking to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. If you fail to respond, the system can also initiate braking automatically from speeds up to 65 mph.
Shift into Reverse, and a rear-mounted camera displays a live 180-degree view of what’s behind the vehicle on the screen atop the dashboard. Active on-screen guidelines indicate the car’s projected path as you turn the steering wheel.
SEAT BELT TECHNOLOGY
Arguably our most important passive safety feature, all four outboard 3-point seat belts are equipped with Emergency Tensioning Devices (ETDs) and belt force limiters. If a collision exceeds a preset threshold, ETDs instantly remove slack from the seat belts. Belt force limiters allow a slight amount of give in the seat belts, to reduce the peak seat-belt forces on the occupant.
ELECTRONIC STABILITY PROGRAM (ESP®)
This safety breakthrough first introduced by Mercedes-Benz continually monitors your driving inputs and the vehicle’s motion to help keep it going in your intended direction, especially in corners and during evasive maneuvers. If it detects wheelspin, severe understeer (plowing), or oversteer (fishtailing), ESP® can brake individual wheels and reduce engine power to help bring the vehicle under control.
ELECTRIC PARKING BRAKE
The convenient electric parking brake can be set or disengaged at the touch of a button. It also automatically releases when you shift into gear and step on the accelerator. This feature also increases usable console space by eliminating the need for a conventional brake handle.
BLIND SPOT ASSIST
At most driving speeds, radar technology helps sense when a vehicle enters the blind-spot area. An icon illuminates in the appropriate side mirror to alert the driver of a detected vehicle. The system also gives an audible warning if the driver activates a turn signal while a vehicle is detected.
