The new Mercedes-Benz CLA is a unique coupé with outstanding performance. Deliveries for the head-turning new model will commence in April, so get in touch with Ridgeway to book a test drive, or place your order.
Sitting on the same platform as the A-Class, the new CLA looks every bit the high-class coupé. Its design is avant-garde though, with striking grooves and muscular body-lines providing instant presence. A low drag coefficient of 0.23Cd allows a more streamlined drive than ever before. The iconic three-point star is positioned at the centre of the bold front grille, making it abundantly clear that this is a Mercedes-Benz.
For drivers who enjoy a luxury interior the CLA is ideal, as trim surfaces are galvanised in silver, and have undergone a black Piano-lacquer finish. There’s an optional panoramic roof, and a cutting-edge “Siri” Voice Control system lets you issue commands without removing your hands from the steering wheel.
At present three engines are available; a 1.6-litre petrol unit offers great entry-level specifications, whilst the 2.0-litre CLA 250 version outputs 211bhp. Together with a seven-speed DCT gearbox, the CLA 250 can achieve a top speed of 149mph, with a 0-60mph time of 6.7 seconds. For enhanced efficiency the 2.2-litre diesel looks the strongest option, and its output of 170bhp remains impressive.
Plenty of innovative Mercedes-Benz safety systems will feature, including Collision Prevention Assist and Attention Assist. Both systems do exactly what they suggest, with an efficiency that enhances the CLA’s protective potential to an impressive level.
The Mercedes-Benz CLA is currently earning rave reviews at the Geneva Motor Show. With deliveries due to commence in April, Ridgeway Mercedes-Benz is now taking orders, so get in touch to register your interest, or to book a test drive.
