Performance Enhancing Features

Direct Injection Turbo-4 Engine

The CLA 250 offers an efficient 4-cylinder engine that 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

The entry-level Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 promises drivers plenty of exhilaration around Guelph, but no matter which version you own, expect these standard and optional features to make every drive exceptional:

  • Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 4MATIC Coupe – This upgraded engine touts industry-topping hp/litre. You’ll see the CLA’s already powerful performance increase to 375 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque and drive more confidently thanks to 4MATIC AWD.
  • ECO Start/Stop Fystem – Automatically shuts 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.
  • 7-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission and DYNAMIC SELECT Switch – The dual-clutch system offers swift, sporty gear-shifting and DYNAMIC SELECT offers drivers their choice from three tailored driving modes.

Feel the Power of the Mercedes-Benz CLA

The CLA performance is astounding, but so is the safety and technology. For all these reasons the Mercedes-Benz model beats competitors like the Audi A3 and the BMW 3-Series; you can even compare the C-Class Coupe vs. CLA Coupe. Pay a point to visit Mercedes-Benz Kitchener-Waterloo at your earliest convenience to truly experience the one-of-a-kind presence and poise of the CLA. We offer the CLA in a variety of colors and trims at our showroom.
