Although Mercedes-Benz sells smaller cars in other markets, the smallest model in the US has traditionally been the C-Class. That changes with the introduction of the new CLA-Class sedan. The CLA-Class is compact four-door vehicle with seating for five passengers. Unlike other Mercedes-Benz models sold in the US, the CLA is front-wheel-drive with a transversely mounted engine. The front-wheel-drive CLA250 and all-wheel-drive CLA250 4MATIC are powered by a 208-bhp turbocharged four-cylinder engine coupled with a seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission.
The CLA-Class is a new sedan based on the A-Class. Unlike other Mercedes-Benz models sold in the US, the CLA is front-wheel-drive with a transversely mounted engine. In comparison to the C-Class, the CLA-Class is very similar in size with a slightly shorter wheelbase. Power is provided by a 208-bhp, 2.0l turbocharged four-cylinder engine. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is standard. Two models are offered, the front-wheel-drive CLA250 and the CLA250 4MATIC with all-wheel-drive.
