2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA250
Came into spotlight in 2014 model year, it’s based on a front-wheel-steer platform overlapped with the GLA crossover and the Europe market A-class hatchback car. Beside a Metris van, the Mercedes-Benz CLA250 sedan car is the most cheap route to rock a brand-new Mercedes-Benz.
The CLA’s shape impersonators that of the large, twice-as-expensive CLS, both are sedan cars in the four-door coupe mold that Mercedes began with the genuine CLS. Although there’s an evil AMG CLA45 deviation with 375 horsepower, the regular CLA250 uses a retiring, 208-hp model of its 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four joined to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with either front or 4MATIC all-wheel steer as in our experiment automobile. With a commencing value of only $33,325, the CLA puts a groomed body behind a seven-inch-wide star prominently attached to a chromium-studded opening.
We haven’t experimented a CLA yet and neither of those preceding 2015 vehicles was as lavishly optioned as this instance. At $50,250, our 2017 CLA250 4MATIC analyzed so many containers that it nearly equaled the CLA45’s base figures. A well-equipped C300 4MATIC would be more absorbing at this value and a base E300 is only a pair superb more. But model representation is communal. Preference reigns at Mercedes-Benz and the CLA is the commencing component.
Insignificant changes abound for the 2017 model year. At the front, the bumper adds a distinguishing part in black, silver or chromium. LED headlights, as on our automobile, are elective ($850) and include revised LED taillamps. Trapezoidal gas exhaust ends now meet even to the breed bumper. The wheel designs and the Lunar Blue all-metal colorant on our automobile also are brand-new.
