New Mercedes-Benz CLA: second-generation model revealed!

10 January, 2019, 16:39 | Author: Sammy Rose
  • Mercedes Benz’s India car sales in 2018 increased by 1.4% to 15,538 units compared to the previous year when the company sold 15,330 units

It is built on a re-engineered version of the previous car's platform and uses technology from the latest A-class. This is a good thing, because we're unanimous in our opinion that the new A-Class has a vastly improved interior compared with the old CLA. To that end, the new CLA uses the latest iteration of the MBUX infotainment system, a twin 12-inch screen system that debuted on the A-Class at CES a year ago.

The new CLA-Class's interior appears to be lifted right out of the A-Class, with two free-standing, monolithic screens for instrumentation and infotainment. Mercedes-Benz claims that the CLA continues to have the same drag coefficient of 0.23 as before.

Low height matched with a wide, planted stance are necessary for a coupe presence and dimensions of the all-new CLA-Class don't disappoint. It sits lower to the ground by 2 mm, however, it has sacrificed 10 litres of boot capacity, although improvements have been made to the width of the load opening space, meaning you should be able to better utilise the space that the CLA has to offer. Engine outputs are 225 hp and 350 Nm of torque, transmitted to the wheels via a 7G-DCT dual-clutch transmission. The full details about the CLA as released by Mercedes at CES can be found in the document attached below. This unit is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The biggest change is inside though.

The new CLA, which debuted Tuesday at CES, will be launched in May. The centerpiece for the cabin, and indeed the vehicle as a whole, is the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system that was unveiled first in the Mercedes A-Class.

The successor to Mercedes-Benz's first front-drive compact for America, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 and CLA 250 4MATIC, is finally here.

Mercedes says the system recognizes natural-language commands, such as selecting music or navigating home, and it can also be controlled through controls on the steering wheel, a touchpad, or the infotainment touch screen. The system is similar in concept to what other manufacturers, including German rival Audi, have to offer. The famed MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) system has been updated with the capability to answer more complex queries- for example, sports results, calculations, general knowledge, as well as eateries matching the specific demand of the driver. Mercedes-Benz have also developed a system by which MBUX only responds to the last person to have said "Hey Mercedes". The Energising package introduces the Mercedes-Benz vivoactive 3 Smartwatch developed in collaboration with Garmin. The twin power bulges in the hood hark back to the 300SL Gullwing sports vehicle.
