Chances are, you have already heard about the CLA-Class. And chances are, it sounded unbelievable. But take one look at this beauty of a beast, and the word on the street begins to make sense. From its impeccable performance, to its aerodynamics and its groundbreaking design philosophy, you realize almost instantly that this car is unlike any other. Just like the rumours around it.
One look at the CLA-Class, and you’ll realize it’s something that redefines the standards of style, design and luxury, not just for Mercedes-Benz but the category as a whole. It’s targeted at individuals who are making headlines during the day and avoiding the paparazzi at night. They are the most talked about, the most sought after. The CLA-Class is a machine with an attitude, and shares its street credentials with the one behind the wheel as well.
The interior also exerts a powerful fascination. Thanks to the integral look sports seats which are standard in both the front and the rear. The design of the air nozzles recalls the form of a jet engine.
Radical change requires energy. In the CLA-Class, highly concentrated engine technology extracts maximum power from the line-up of four-cylinder units. A standard-fit 7-speed dual clutch transmission delivers this output straight to the road.
On experiencing it’s powerful 135 KW power and 300 Nm torque output coming from its 2-liter petrol engine or the 100 KW and 300 Nm from the 2.2-liter diesel engine, 7-Speed Dual-Clutch Automatic Transmission and a design with the lowest coefficient drag in the segment, you’ll realize almost instantly that this is a car that’s truly unlike any other, and convincingly so when you get to a 100 km/h from a standstill in just 7.8 seconds.
Following its first appearance at the 2014 Auto Expo, the CLA-Class launches tomorrow in India, and word has it that there’s only one thing that travels faster than it. Its reputation.
