second generation, 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA.
Mercedes-Benz is pulling the canvas off the new four-door coupe CLA later today, but unfortunately for the German brand, Australian blog Caradvice has already decided to release all the official photos online.
The new 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA will slot for the first time next to another four-door car in Mercedes’ compact model family: the A-Class Limousine. However, the CLA is the sportier alternative to that proper four-door sedan. As far as exterior dimensions are concerned, the all-new CLA is slightly larger than its predecessor: 48mm (1.89in) longer, 53mm (2.08in) wider, and 2mm (0.07in) lower.
The interior of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA is virtually identical to that of its other brothers in the compact family, but the exterior shows more affinity with that of bigger cars in the line-up, such as the latest CLS. Particularly at the back, references to the GLC / GLE Coupé and the aforementioned CLS are clearly seen.
The orange details we see on the black example of the new 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA will, of course, only be associated with the First Edition model.
For the world premiere hosted by this year’s CES, Mercedes-Benz decided to present the top-of-the-line CLA 250 variant. This translates to a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine (100% made by Mercedes) good for 224 PS (221 HP) and 349 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. Other engines, including smaller Renault sourced variants and the AMG tuned A 35 will follow. For more info come back later today.
