2021 Mercedes-Benz CLA Review

The Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe looks familiar doesn’t it? That’s because its roots are in the iconic 300 SL Gullwing. With a racing heritage that started with the very first motorsport victory the CLA is ready. Choose from four models starting with the CLA 250 and moving through the AMG CLA 45. When the stoplight turns red your CLA Coupe turns green as its ECO Start/Stop System cuts the engine. But when the light turns green and the engine starts your CLA Coupe sees red—getting you from zero to sixty in as little as four seconds. Inside the cabin performance turns to luxury. The seats were born from long-distance racing so they’re built for long-distance comfort with extendable thigh support and integrated head restraints. And from your CLA Coupe’s Mercedes-Benz User Experience with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto phone integration to its standard and available Driver Assistance Systems you’ll stay connected and protected. Choose from a variety of colors options and Genuine Mercedes-Benz Accessories and build a CLA Coupe that’s all yours. The Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe. Drive a future icon.
The Mercedes-Benz User Experience with Natural Language Understanding puts your CLA Coupe in a new category. Just say “Hey Mercedes ” and your CLA Coupe hangs on your every word. It’ll learn your habits—and it’ll adapt to changes in your daily routine. Need to drop something off on the way to work? Available MB Navigation with Augmented Video shows you the way. Mercedes me connect turns your smartphone into a remote control for your CLA Coupe so you can start it from your living room if you want. The Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe. Bask in the luxury of technology.
The Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe has plenty of technology to help keep you and your passengers safe. Standard and available driver assistance and safety features use cameras and radar sensors to help you stay aware of what’s around you. Active Brake Assist scans the road ahead of you and Blind Spot Assist scans the road to the side. Available PARKTRONIC Active Parking Assist makes parallel parking easy. The available Driver Assistance Package adds Lane Keeping Assist and Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC Cruise Control. The Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe. Because safety is the ultimate luxury.
The Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe is a direct descendant of the car that won the very first motorsports trophy. With up to 382 horsepower available from a turbocharged two-liter inline-four it’s a heritage you can feel every time you press the accelerator. A Mercedes-Benz 7G Dual-Clutch Seven-Speed Automatic Transmission with Paddle Shifters comes on the 250; AMG models get a SPEEDSHIFT Dual-Clutch Transmission. Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC All-Wheel-Drive is available to make your driving experience even better no matter the conditions. The Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe. Racing heritage with real-world performance.
