  • 2020 Mercedes Benz CLA 250 Edition 1

The CLA is the latest model to be revealed among Mercedes' all-new compact vehicle family, joining the A-Class hatch that is already on sale in Australia and the sedan and high-roofed B-Class hatch due to land in showrooms before the middle of the year.

"With the first CLA we created a totally new segment with a four-door coupe and celebrated a huge success by selling some 750,000 CLA and CLA Shooting Brakes", adds Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing & Sales. "Coupled with new operating systems, it sets new benchmarks for the entire class".

There's a new version of the MBUX - the Mercedes-Benz User Experience - set-up as the A-Class, incorporating the "Hey Mercedes" voice-controlled assistant, but additional local content has been added in, making the auto more relevant in a local context.

The width has grown significantly to 1,830 millimetres, over 50 millimetres more than the predecessor.

Inside, the new CLA-Class is a dead-ringer for the A-Class on which it's based.

The CLA features the maker's new "Hey Mercedes" digital assistant. While the A-Class only gets multilink rear suspension on the all-wheel-drive model (the front-drive models with wheels smaller than 19 inches are saddled with a torsion-beam design), all CLA-Class models will have multilink rear suspension.

Had they eased up after their fifth goal, or played a weakened side, they would have been accused of patronising the Brewers. I'm proud of the respect we showed to the opponent'.

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 updated MBUX Interior Assist also features interface through non-contact hand gestures. The system is able to distinguish between gesture commands from the driver and front passenger and functions both in sunlight and in complete darkness. But it is physically larger than before with a more spacious cabin that brings even more features from the ground-breaking MBUX connectivity system, plus the latest in semi-autonomous safety and improvements in efficiency through wind-cheating aerodynamics and economical powertrains.

Mercedes Benz will sport a 2.0-litre four cylinder petrol engine which can produce 225 bhp of power and 350 Nm of torque which is mated with a 7G DCT dual clutch transmission.

The second-generation Mercedes-Benz CLA has finally revealed itself to the world, looking more like a "CLS junior" than ever.

Come May however, the engine range for the all-new CLA will broaden to include several gas-powered turbo fours and diesel-powered mills.
