2014 Mercedes Benz CLA

Mercedes Benz have been always an exclusive auto maker for the rich, but have some changes for that rule. Cheap and unique is a concept we all love, and Hyundai/KIA have pushed it even further. However, it is the big companies answer to such market. Mercedes is not selling E-Class alternative for half the price, and you should have guessed so. The main reason for Mercedes is to increase their sales numbers. The CLA is an alternative for a fully loaded Camry/Accord/Altime. It exceeds these cars in term of refinement, quality, appeal, and most important design.

The key selling point would be the looks and tech features. Performance is above average considering price, fuel economy, and everyday usability. That is due to a very low drag coefficient of 0.23 Cd. This is less than electric cars such as Tesla Model S (.24 Cd) and Toyota Prius (.25 Cd). This enables the CLA to achieve better 0-60 times, 1/4 mile, fuel economy, and stability. Below are some Tech features:

  • mbrace2 in-vehicle technology suite with available Internet access
  • Full Bluetooth connectivity for music streaming and hands-free calling
  • Available iPod/MP3 Media Interface, harman/kardon surround-sound system, SiriusXM Satellite Radio with Traffic and Weather, and navigation with voice control
  • COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST
  • ATTENTION ASSIST
  • Available Driver Assistance Package featuring DISTRONIC adaptive cruise control, Blind Spot Assist and Lane Keeping Assist
