Performance-Enhancing Features

Direct Injection Turbo-4 Engine

The CLA 250's efficient 4-cylinder engine creates 258 lb-ft of torque at only 1,200 rpm and provides the driver with stop-on-a-dime responsiveness.

4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive

This lightweight Mercedes-Benz system bases the allocation of power on current road conditions, quickly sending power to the rear axle when needed.

7-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission

Offering fuel economy superior to traditional manual and automatic transmissions alike, this 7-speed transmission offers the perfect blend of composure and sportiness.


Customize your ride quality with this feature, where the flip of the switch allows you to choose from a range of driving modes that fine-tune steering, suspension, and other vehicle systems.

Unadulterated Driving Pleasure Awaits You

Even the entry-level Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 promises drivers plenty of exhilaration, with its standard Direct Injection turbo-4 engine that stands poised to release 208 hp, along with 258 lb-ft of torque. Make the jump up to the Mercedes-AMG® CLA 45 4MATIC® Coupe, which touts industry-topping hp/litre, and you’ll see the CLA’s already powerful performance increase to 375 hp from its efficient 2.0L engine. Efficiency is further achieved for the new CLA courtesy of both the standard ECO Start®/Stop feature and the variable-torque 4MATIC® all-wheel drive. The ECO Start®/Stop system can automatically shut off the engine of your CLA when it’s not needed, like when you’re stopped at a traffic light, and then restart the car when you’re ready to go again. The intuitive 4MATIC® all-wheel drive, on the other hand, improves efficiency by only sending power to the rear wheels in more difficult circumstances, then deactivating rear drive when it’s no longer necessary. Finally, enthusiasts can indulge their every driving whim through the endless options for customization made available by the CLA’s 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and DYNAMIC SELECT switch, with the dual-clutch system offering swift, sporty gear-shifting and DYNAMIC SELECT offering drivers their choice from three tailored driving modes.
