The CLA 250 goes like it shows. Its 221-hp turbo inline-4 efficiently boosts power, torque and your spirits. And its 4-wheel independent suspension is crisp in corners, composed in the city.
The dual-clutch 7-speed keeps the turbo engine's torque on tap. Automatic shifts are smoother yet quicker. Standard shift paddles put manual control at your fingertips anytime the mood strikes.
DYNAMIC SELECT lets you fine-tune your CLA with the tap of a console paddle. Four modes vary shift points, throttle response, steering feel and more: easygoing ECO, cool-headed Comfort, sharpened Sport, and make-your-own Individual.
Variable-torque 4MATIC® all-wheel drive can send power from the front to the rear wheels of the CLA 250 4MATIC in response to available traction. More than a winter wonder, its lightweight, agile design enhances cornering even on a dry summer day.
An ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations, to save fuel and reduce emissions. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for immediate acceleration response. The ECO Start/Stop system can also be shut off by the driver at any time.
The CLA front-wheel drive system is an ideal match for its nimble handling and efficient packaging. Impeccable calibration of the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and Electronic Traction System (ETS) enhances tire bite under hard acceleration, while equal-length driveshafts virtually eliminate undesirable torque steer.
Lean muscle leads the way forward from the clutter of other cars. Sleek LED headlamps and a twin-power-dome hood sweep back from the sharknose grille, clearing the way for a profile that slices the wind and a Panorama roof that embraces the sky.
Standard 18-inch wheels hug the curves in the road and in the CLA body. AMG Line option sharpens its style with aero-aggressive lower bodywork.
Catches the eye. Clings to the road.
Offering sweeping skyward views to both front- and rear-seat passengers, this giant, fully functional glass sunroof features a large panel that can tilt up for ventilation or slide back for an open-air feeling. A power interior shade lets occupants vary the amount of sunlight entering the cabin, and you can even open and close it using the car's advanced voice control system.
Freestanding digital instrumentation anchors a wraparound cockpit with a central touchscreen and available reconfigurable gauges. Enticing options include 64-color LED ambient lighting, and heated and ventilated front seats.
MBUX is easy to learn because it can learn you. Just say "Hey, Mercedes, it's cold in here" or "I need a coffee," and it can control many cabin features. Among them is the available MB Navigation that can overlay instructions on live video of a turn.
Mercedes me connect makes ownership easy. Access Remote Start or Lock/Unlock, see your vehicle status, or schedule service, all from your phone. And in-car WiFi for up to eight devices is available for a low monthly rate.
In addition to standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto, up to five USB-C ports mean there's a plug for every passenger. Available wireless charging lets you refuel your compatible phone's battery as you drive.
Intuitive, seat-shaped controls help you find your ideal driving position with 8-way power adjustment, including 4-way power lumbar support. A memory system for each front seat recalls three stored seat positions with the touch of a button. The driver-seat memory also includes the power side mirror positions. Both front seats also feature adjustable cushion length, for optimal thigh support and added comfort.
Sport front seats feature deeper side bolsters to offer enhanced lateral support. With Black or Macchiato Beige MB-Tex upholstery, the seats feature adjustable head restraints. With all other upholstery choices, the four outboard seats feature racing-inspired integrated head restraints.
The rear seatbacks fold down in a 40/20/40 split, offering a variety of cargo and passenger configurations. You can also fold the center section independently, to fit longer items like skis between two rear passengers. The release handles are in the trunk, so they're conveniently located where you'll need them, and can be kept out of reach simply by valet-locking the trunk.
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 5 microns from entering the cabin. Five adjustable vents in the dash and a pair of rear-cabin air vents help maintain passenger enjoyment throughout the cabin.
All new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are protected by our New Vehicle Limited Warranty, covering defects in material or workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Along with standard Blind Spot Assist, advanced options can help de-stress driving: Change lanes with a tap of a turn signal. Adaptive cruise can help steer, stop-and-go in traffic, even slow for an offramp. Safety sensors can help protect your hearing before a crash.
Radar-based technology can alert 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 you start to brake, it can automatically provide an appropriate level of braking to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. If you fail to respond, it can also initiate braking automatically at a range of driving speeds. The system can also detect and react to crossing pedestrians at typical city speeds.
If an air bag deploys, your car can automatically initiate a call to Mercedes-Benz Emergency Services, transmitting your GPS-determined location and helpful vehicle information on your behalf. Trained experts are on call 24/7 to help summon local emergency responders to your location. You can also press the SOS button in the vehicle anytime you need emergency assistance, or see someone else who does. This vital service is provided for as long as you own the vehicle, no matter who's driving.
The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST® continuously monitors up to 70 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. With enhanced sensitivity, the system can also help detect drivers who begin their trip drowsy, and offer more useful information to drivers along their journey via a dashboard display.
