Mercedes-Benz India has divulged that the 2017 Mercedes CLA (facelift) will launch for sale on November 30. It carries over most of the changes from the facelifted A Class, which was launched nearly a year ago.
The new CLA features revised LED headlamps with sleeker LED DRL strips, re-designed front bumper, updated LED taillight clusters, and new exhaust tips. The Euro-spec CLA has a new color added to the existing palette: Cavansite Blue Metallic (Lunar Blue in the United States).
Inside, it gets a revised 8-inch freestanding COMAND infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, new interior color options, new matte black ash wood and aluminum with a honeycomb grain trim, slightly updated instrument cluster and more chrome embellishments.
Engine lineup is likely to be retained. The CLA 200 petrol variant a 2.0-litre petrol that churns out 183 HP and 300 Nm, while the CLA 200d packs a 2.0-litre diesel that develops 136 hp and 300 Nm of torque. Both engines are mated to a 7-speed DCT unit that sends power to the front wheels.
