2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA Changes and Release Date
Ever since the Mercedes-Benz CLA hit our showroom floor in 2013, it has been one of our hottest selling cars. And why wouldn’t it be? This vehicle has the luxury that you would expect from a Mercedes-Benz, with the spacious interior of a compact sedan. Except this isn’t a sedan; it’s a four-door coupe that is as powerful and aerodynamic as any vehicle on the road today. But we have hyped the vehicle up enough, let’s take a look at why you should be excited for the 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA changes and release date.
Refreshed Exterior Leaves a Lasting Impression
Mercedes-Benz has always been about designing vehicles that passersby will remember long after they have seen one. That lasting impression may last even longer after you see the 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA. The coupe’s overall stature still resembles the previous model, but it did receive a facelift to its front and rear bumpers. For the CLA250, the new front bumper will have a silver, black or chrome strip running across it. This look is optional on the rear bumper as well, with chrome or black available. There will still be six wheel choices to choose from on the Mercedes-Benz CLA250, and a new metallic paint will be available, Lunar Blue.
Neater Interior Provides a More Relaxing Ride
Moving to the inside of the vehicle, we see there are several other significant 2017 Mercedes-CLA changes. A slimmer, freestanding 8-inch media display is equipped to provide a quick and easy interactive experience. Many of the vehicle’s trim parts have been updated, and new seat covers give the vehicle a much more elegant feel. More meticulous changes include new dials and needles which make it much easier to read the media cluster.
Updates to the 2017 Mercedes-AMG CLA45
A performance variant returns once again, in the form of the 2017 Mercedes-AMG CLA45. It has received several upgrades as well. The biggest changes were made in order to make the vehicle even more aerodynamic. It does this by incorporating more AMG design language which includes giving the front bumper a new A-wing design, a lip spoiler on the trunk, and a redesigned rear diffuser.
Inside, there were several trim upgrades, but the biggest addition may be the new AMG DINAMICA Interior package which will net you the DINAMICA trim elements, and a DINAMICA AMG Performance steering wheel.
Just as Quick and Powerful as Ever
Both the 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 and 2017 Mercedes-AMG CLA45 will continue to provide a driving experience unlike any other. Below is a quick breakdown of the two vehicle’s power outputs:
|2.0-liter I4 Turbo||Engine||2.0-liter I4 Turbo|
|208 hp, 258 lb-ft of torque||Performance||375 hp, 350 lb-ft of torque|
|6.9 seconds||0-60||4.1 seconds|
