Beneath the twin power domes of the CLA 250 hood beats a powerful heart. A 208-hp turbo inline-4 turns less fuel into more torque with advanced Direct Injection and rapid multi-spark ignition. ECO Start/Stop automatically pauses the engine at red lights to save fuel. DYNAMIC SELECT lets you dial in a mode to fit your driving mood.
Quick to respond, light in weight, and remarkably efficient, variable-torque 4MATIC® all-wheel drive can take the CLA 250 to higher levels of agility and all-season confidence. As the grip changes at each wheel, 4MATIC can instantly and variably send up to 50 percent of the engine's power output to the rear wheels, on demand.
A pair of paddles strategically positioned behind the upper steering-wheel spokes allows you to manually upshift and downshift the 7-speed DCT transmission with just a flick of your fingers.
Engineered to balance quick-witted responsiveness with quiet refinement, the 4-wheel independent suspension features a combination of MacPherson struts and wishbones up front, with a four-link design at the rear.
Both front seats feature sport contours with deep side bolsters. A comfort-enhancing feature lets you extend the front of the seat cushion for added thigh support. All four outboard seats feature racing-inspired integrated head restraints.
Intuitive, seat-shaped controls help you find your ideal driving position with 14-way power adjustment, including 4-way power lumbar support. A memory system for each seat seat recalls three stored positions for the seat, plus the power side mirrors for the driver. Both front seats also feature adjustable cushion length, for optimal thigh support and added comfort.
Separate left and right temperature controls allow the driver and front passenger to enjoy personalized comfort. In addition to fully automatic or manual control of blower speed and airflow distribution, the system includes a dust and pollen filter that helps keep particles as small as 0.0002-inch from entering the cabin. Five adjustable vents in the dash and a pair of rear-cabin air vents help maintain passenger enjoyment throughout the cabins seatback.
Featuring a large 8.0-inch color display and a central controller on the console, the CLA gives you convenient control of audio, video, hands-free calling and optional navigation functions. Many features can also be accessed via the integrated steering-wheel controls. The freestanding display combines a big viewing area with a sleek design, with no need for a bulky visor.

Radar-based technology alerts you if you're approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as the driver starts to brake, Active Brake Assist can automatically provide an appropriate level of braking to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. If you fail to respond, the system can also initiate braking automatically from speeds up to 65 mph.
An advanced system of 8 air bags includes dual two-stage front air bags, front side-impact head/torso air bags, dual front knee air bags, and side curtain air bags for both seating rows.
The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST® continuously monitors different parameters of driving behavior, and can automatically alert the driver with both visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips.
This driver-assistance feature helps you to see directly behind your vehicle when backing up. Shift into Reverse, and a rear-mounted camera displays a live 180-degree view of what's behind the vehicle on the screen atop the dashboard. Active on-screen guidelines indicate the car's projected path as you turn the steering wheel.
