In violation of the imprisoned embargo, the Australian News Service published photos of the new Mercedes-Benz CLA, the presentation will take place only today at CES.

Not often it happens, by chance or on purpose, but in Australia they decided to declassify one of the most high-profile novelties of January 2019. Concern Daimler carefully lined up a teaser campaign and fueled interest in the new CLA, and now everything did not go according to plan. But this is another story, but now let’s look at the future novelty.

From the outside, the car looks like a modern fastback, but it is built on the basis of the new A-Class. Thanks to the elongated body, sharp LED optics, as well as rear lights, the CLA looks like a small copy of the CLS. The new generation of the car became larger and added 48 mm in length.

 The increased wheelbase allowed engineers to add more space to the rear passengers in the legs, which is not the case with the space above your head. The interior is fully made in the innovative style of A-Class, including the “multimedia” MBUX.

 A feature of the model will be not only the exterior, but also more advanced driver assistants: emergency braking, assistance in maintaining the lane and adaptive cruise control.

The CLA 250 will be shown at CES – under the hood of this version there is a 2.0-liter turbo engine capable of developing up to 220 horsepower. At the time of the start of the motor line will be significantly expanded. Transmission will offer both mechanical and automatic.

Meanwhile, the Mercedes-Benz CLA was first shown on video. Concern Daimler on the eve of the debut of the new model at tomorrow’s opening of the exhibition CES-2019 has released a teaser with a review of the car.
