2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA
The United States has been one of the largest markets to get behind the wheel of the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class and the German luxury automaker is ready to keep the model’s popularity rolling. For the 2017 model year, the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class will see cosmetic changes, more equipment, and a more comfortable interior.
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class sees an updated exterior for the model year. A new front bumper and updated design appears at the top of the list of changes, while an exhaust that’s flush with the bumper makes the bottom.
Inside, the new Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class includes a slimmer eight-inch touchscreen, new seat covers, and chrome trim. The CLA 45 AMG® model boasts red stitching and the available AMG® Dinamica Interior package adds microfiber suede upholstery.
New equipment includes safety features like Active Brake Assist and a rearview camera. Full LED headlights come as an option on the CLA 250 while the AMG® model includes LED lights as a standard feature. Hands-Free Access comes as a part of the Premium Package and gives drivers easier access to their vehicle.
There’s no change in powertrains for the 2017 model year. The standard CLA 250 features the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that pumps out 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The more powerful CLA 45 AMG® packs a turbocharged four-cylinder engine as well, and is capable of producing 375 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque.
