Get ready to drive around Mississippi in the sporty and stylish 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA. Before you can get behind the wheel, however, you need to figure out which CLA model will best meet your needs. There are three variations to choose from, although two are incredibly similar to each other. Take a closer look to discover what sets the CLA models apart.
Mercedez-Benz Engines and Powertrains
The CLA250 runs on a 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet. The CLA250 has an identical powertrain but with all-wheel drive, bringing efficiency down from 26 city/38 highway to 23/32. The AMG CLA45 is the most powerful with its own turbocharged 2-liter engine, 375 horsepower, and 350 pound-feet, but it further reduces highway fuel economy to 30 mpg*. This extra power is due to the handcrafted nature of this unique AMG engine. The CLA250 can go from 0 to 60 mph in 6.9 seconds while the CLA250 4MATIC reduces this time to 6.8 seconds and the AMG CLA45 only takes 4.1 seconds. The powertrains are the main differences between the various trim levels on the CLA.
CLA Interior Features
No matter which 2017 CLA trim you choose, you will get a leather steering wheel and the option of leather seats and genuine wood on the instrument panel. All models also have front power memory and power-folding functionality for the second row. While the CLA250 has power lumbar support for the driver, the other trims have it for both seats. Regardless of trim, you will also enjoy a telescoping steering wheel, tinted glass, COMAND and eight speakers. All trims offer navigation, a rear electronic parking aid featuring a camera, and a panoramic sunroof.
Exterior Features of the CLA
Every 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA comes with heated exterior mirrors featuring integrated turn signals and memory for their power adjustment, a rear window defogger, halogen headlights, rain sensing wipers, and perimeter lighting.
