Mercedes-Benz CLA Highlights
After the Mercedes-Benz C-Class having become more expensive, the manufacturer had decided to bring out a compact sedan (read: Mercedes-Benz CLA) priced as far more accessible to buyers in our market. While rivaling German automakers have luxury hatchbacks on offer, Mercedes have decided that, apart from the A and B-Class, the CLA will cater to those looking for an entry-level sedan. It is also based on the A-Class hatchback. When launched back in 2015, its stunning design, sporty dynamics, latest technology and of course, affordability, had a lot of buyers intrigued. However, in 2017, for a slight bump in on-road pricing, Mercedes-Benz CLA received mild styling tweaks and more features.
From the outside, the CLA immediately looks inspired by the larger CLS' coupe-like roofline. The sloping roof is absolutely spot-on. From up-front, you'll see revised LED headlamps in the shape of a leaf, a mildly reshaped front bumper with a chrome finish on the lower half. The bonnet has a few sharp lines on it, while the side profile consists of the same 17-inch alloy wheel design as before and flowing creases converging towards each other on the doors. At the rear, it looks curvaceous, and the tail lamps have been re-profiled as well.
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA variants are as follows: 200 CDI Style, 200 CGI Sport, 200 CDI Sport and AMG 45. Features include cruise control, 8.0 touchscreen for the COMAND media system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, USB, Aux and Bluetooth, automatic headlamps, a panoramic sunroof, rear camera, navigation and a Harman-Kardon music system. On the safety front, it is equipped with ABS, 6 airbags, hill-start assist, adaptive braking, ESP and Merc's Attention Assist system.
The instrument cluster has been re-designed along with a few tweaks done to the trim. There's also Merc's driving-mode system – Drive Select, which is available. It includes the addition of fresh interface that allows you to toggle engine and steering response between 'Comfort' and 'Sport'. The quality of the soft-touch plastic around is really good and feels well put-together. On the dashboard, the turbine-like AC vents look neat and classy; so do the buttons and that instrument binnacle. At the front, the seats are electrically adjustable and feel very supportive. Both seats come with adjustable thigh support. Space at the rear is best for two occupants, and the seats feel quite comfortable. Headroom could've been better, but legroom is just about sufficient. Boot space, at 470 litres, is not that bad at all.
Engine Specifications & Performance
The CLA is powered by a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder turbo-petrol engine that produces 181bhp and 300Nm of torque, and a 2.2-litre diesel engine that makes 134bhp and 300Nm of torque. Paired to both engines is a 7-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission. We drove the one with the petrol engine. The engine feels pretty responsive, and it manages to pick up pace rather effortlessly. There is hardly any turbo lag as well, and the shifts are rather smooth. In Sport mode, the needle on the speedometer climbs quickly. You can also tug at the paddles, in case you're eager to get a bit more involved. Refinement levels are good, but the engine does snarl when pushed really hard. Engine modes like Comfort, Sport and Eco adjust transmission and engine response. Ride quality is impressive, and the car feels agile around corners. It takes bumps in its stride as well. The Mercedes-Benz CLA new model is stable at high speeds, and the steering does feel a bit weighty, which is welcome.
The Mercedes-Benz CLA's ARAI-certified fuel efficiency figure is rated at 17.9kmpl for the diesel model, and 15.04kmpl for the petrol model.
