Video: Mercedes CLA starts at USD 29,900


Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

And we have another video on the highly anticipated Mercedes CLA. This seems to be the commercial for the United States market.

However, what is important to us, is the price tag that pops towards the end of the video and we’re certainly liking the numbers which we see.

‘Starting at $29,900’ is all you need to know. We think that price would be for the base petrol which happens to be the CLA 180 churning out 122bhp of power. That price equates to about INR 15.92 lakhs.

While we’re certainly not expecting Mercedes India to price the CLA at that price point (when it arrives here by early 2014), we can certainly speculate the price of the baby sedan in India.

However that speculation is largely based on how Mercedes plans on getting the CLA here. Would it be completely imported (like the B Class) with local assembly starting later on in its life cycle? Or would the CLA roll out of the Chakan plant from Day 1?

With the A Class to be launched at about INR 18-20 lakhs this summer, and the B Class already launched at about INR 21.5 lakhs last year, we wouldn’t be surprised if the CLA costs us anywhere between INR 20-25 lakhs for the base petrol engine.

The Mercedes CLA would be the third offering sitting on the MFA (Mercedes Front Wheel Architecture) platform in India and would be the most affordable sedan from the Stuttgart based manufacturer.
