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.
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. Comfort tuning balances its sporty handling with a refined ride quality befitting a Mercedes-Benz.
A multimode drive program selector on the console lets you transform the car's character with the touch of a button. Three modes (ECO, Comfort and Sport) alter the throttle response, shift points and steering effort, and ECO Start/Stop. A fourth "Individual" mode allows you to create a mode of your own, even letting you set the transmission for purely manual shifting.
The AMG Line and Night Package both include a chrome diamond-block grille.
Wide, wraparound LED taillamps make sure even drivers behind you can enjoy the view.
The standard power Panorama roof lets you take in the sun and stars wherever you drive.
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, four USB-C ports mean there's a plug within reach of everyone.
A large touchpad controller on the console lets you operate the in-dash central touchscreen while your hand rests comfortably at your side. The touchpad works a lot like your smartphone, including multitouch gestures like swiping through menus and pinching to zoom. The touchpad surface includes dedicated Back, Skip and Home virtual keys, and even recognizes handwriting. Adjacent one-touch hard keys access several frequently used functions.
State-of-the-art USB-C connectors allow plug-and-play enjoyment from your compatible devices as well as fast charging of your phone. With no fewer than four ports in the front and rear of the center console, there's a port within reach of every passenger.

When traveling above approximately 20 mph, radar technology can help sense when a vehicle enters the blind-spot area. Blind Spot Assist can then alert the driver via an illuminated red icon in the appropriate side mirror. An audible warning sounds if the driver activates a turn signal while a vehicle is detected in the blind spot. After parking, Exit Warning Assist can alert the driver or passengers to vehicles, cyclists or pedestrians that could be at risk if the door is opened.
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.
An advanced system of 8 air bags offers 10-way occupant protection. Standard are dual two-stage front air bags, combined thorax/pelvic bags, and knee air bags for the driver and front passenger, plus side curtain air bags for both seating rows. Side-impact air bags are also standard for each outboard rear seating position.
For a better view of what's behind your vehicle when reversing, a high-resolution camera can display a live view on the central in-dash screen. Steering-dependent active guidelines on the screen can help you back into a parking space, and you can select between wide-angle and even wider 180-degree views.
