  • 2020 Mercedes Benz CLA 250 Edition 1

German auto major Mercedes-Benz Wednesday reported 1.4 per cent increase in its sales in India with a record 15,538 units in 2018, retaining its leadership position in the luxury segment for the fourth year in a row. It was never as stylish as it set out to be, though, and instead of being a Mercedes that happened to be cheap, it was more like a cheap vehicle that happened to have a Mercedes badge.

The new Mercedes-Benz CLA Class has been revealed in Las Vegas this evening.

The emotive compact four-door coupe now resembles the larger CLS-Class, and the distinctive head lamp design which features 18 individually controllable LEDs separates it further from the new A-Class (W177). The smoother body helps the CLA to look more expensive than it really is, and the aerodynamics have been improved.

The new Mercedes-Benz CLA Class measures 48 mm longer, 53 mm wider and features improved interior space over the outgoing model. The new CLA250 will use a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (like its predecessor) to drive its front wheels, or optionally, all four wheels. This makes the all-new sedan longer by 48mm, wider by 53mm but shorter by 2mm in height.

In its design, the new CLA has echoes of the A-class and other recent new Mercedes but gets an elongated bonnet featuring a sharply raked nose, uniquely designed flat headlights and a prominent "powerdome" on the bonnet. The all-new CLA-Class shares the same wheelbase as the all-new A-Class sedan and hatchback.


The company will introduce in over 10 new products, including an array of products from the performance brand AMG, this year. First released in the new A-Class, it replaces the previous COMAND system and comes with a variety of wireless connectivity features, and touchscreen / hand gesture functions.

When it arrives in the US, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 will be equipped as standard with the automaker's MBUX infotainment system that offers personal assistant features, similar to home smart speaker or smartphone functions.

The rest of the interior is almost identical to the A-class, with a funky dashboard design, two standard 7.0-inch screens (10.3-inch units are optional), and a more playful use of materials than in other Benz models. "Instead it only responds to the commands of the person who last said 'Hey Mercedes" to activate the system".

Mercedes-Benz will offer an option for the adaptive suspension system, allowing drivers the choice between comfort or a more uncompromising sporty setting.

Mercedes Benz India will start 2019 by launching the V-Class on January 24!
