12th product from Mercedes India this year.
Mercedes-Benz India has launched the 2017 Mercedes CLA (facelift) on November 30. It retains the outgoing model’s variant lineup: CLA 200 d Style, CLA 200 Sport, CLA 200 d Sport, and prices range between INR 31.4 – 34.68 Lakhs (ex-showroom Mumbai).
The exterior changes in the new CLA are basically blink-and-you-miss-it. It features redesigned headlamps with LED illumination, LED taillamps, slightly-revised front bumper with chrome garnish, redesigned exhaust tips, as well as the option of a new Cavansite Blue exterior colour option.
Inside, Merc’s smallest sedan gets a larger 8.0-inch freestanding display running the updated COMAND infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, new trim and colour combinations, a redesigned instrument cluster and Mercedes Dynamic Select with options between ECO, Comfort, Sport and Individual.
The CLA 200 petrol variant packs a 2.0-litre 4-cyl turbocharged engine that churns out 183 hp and 300 Nm, while the CLA 200 d is powered a 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine with 136 hp and 300 Nm of torque. Both variants come with a 7-speed DCT unit that sends power to the front wheels.
