It was officially revealed at the North American International Auto Show in 2013, and it was designed to be the most aerodynamic model production model of the time. The CLA has always been the most affordable Mercedes-Benz model without sacrificing any features.

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA

The 2014 CLA was a truly sporty compact with a 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder with 208 horsepower or an AMG engine with 355 horsepower. Its main goal was to offer a smaller and more affordable alternative to the C-Class, and it definitely succeeded in this goal.

Even though it was very new, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA saw numerous changes, including replacing the standard sport suspension with a comfort suspension and making the sport one optional. Keyless ignition and dual-zone automatic climate control were added to the list of standard features, and full keyless access became an option. A bigger 7-inch touchscreen became standard with an 8-inch as an option. The Mercedes-Benz standard frontal collision warning was also upgraded to improve early brake support in a potential collision.

2016 Mercedes-Benz CLA

For the 2016 model year, Mercedes-Benz renamed the adjustable drive modes as Dynamic Select and added newly available suspension dampers to boost performance without hurting ride comfort. There were also new extendable thigh cushions for front seats and an available black-themed styling package. The AMG CLA45 got a revised transmission and extra power. It also got an available AMG Dynamic Plus package for an adaptive suspension, higher top-speed limiter, and limited-slip front differential.
