The sporty, expressive design of the CLA and CLA Shooting Brake has been honed further in a facelift involving new bumpers, a diamond radiator grille in black as standard and new light-alloy wheels. The interior also benefits from numerous enhancements, among them new seat covers and trim parts, as well as chrome-plated controls. LED High Performance headlamps, Hands-Free Access and further possibilities for integrating smartphones into the control system are all options that serve to enhance safety and comfort.
The Mercedes-AMG CLA45 4MATIC Coupé and Shooting Brake models now feature even more dynamic styling and a further upgraded interior. With a peak performance of 381bhp and maximum torque of 475Nm, they are among the most powerful vehicles in their segment.
In undertaking the facelift modifications, the Mercedes-Benz designers have subtly honed the distinctive look of the CLA and CLA Shooting Brake. All models now have a diamond radiator grille in black as standard, plus a new front bumper with a silver, black or chrome trim strip. The rear bumper is optionally available with a panel incorporating a trim strip in chrome or black (Night package) between the tailpipes. The tailpipe trim panels themselves are now integrated flush into the bumper. This adds visual width to the vehicle and ensures a superior high-quality appearance thanks to even and narrow gaps where the panels join.
There is a new paintwork shade, cavansite blue metallic. The range of available wheels has also been significantly extended. There is now a choice of five 18-inch light-alloy wheels, including one in a new five-twin-spoke design in conjunction with the AMG Line. This is available in two colours (painted black or titanium grey, with a high-sheen finish).
Both the CLA and the CLA Shooting Brake already previously included the latest generation of assistance and safety systems that are, in some cases, only now gradually being introduced in the other model series.
The interior benefits from features such as new seat covers and trim parts, as well as chrome-plated controls. The highlight, available as an option, is a much slimmer-looking free-standing 8-inch media display with a new-style glass cover. The new-style dials and red needles in the instrument cluster make it easier to read the instruments.
New trim elements in sail-look finish, matt black ash wood (in conjunction with Exclusive package), black Dinamica microfibre (optional in conjunction with AMG Line) or aluminium with honeycomb grain, serve to liven up the interior.
Both the CLA and the CLA Shooting Brake are optionally fitted with LED High Performance headlamps. Their colour temperature is closer to that of daylight than xenon headlamps. This is more restful to the eyes and therefore provides relief to the driver at night.
