There will also be a manual transmission option, as well as 4Matic all-wheel drive capability for the new CLA. The largest tyre and wheel combination available will be 225/40 R19 wrapped over 19-inch wheels. Mercedes said this, along with the car's lower centre of gravity, helps to ensure it has improved driving dynamics. Expect high-performance AMG CLA 35 and CLA 45 models to come later.

Mercedes didn't say how much the CLA-Class would cost when it goes on sale near the end of this year, but it's likely to be more than current CLA's base price of roughly $34,000. The C-200 is build on the C-Class facelift which was launched in September 20, 2018 with single diesel engine. The rear of the auto features narrow tail-lights created to make the vehicle appear even wider. Yet the CLA Class is an important model for Mercedes-Benz nonetheless.

With an extended wheelbase, there is also more interior space for passengers - but rear boot space has been cut by 10 litres from the previous generation to 460 litres. The dashboard features a centrally mounted touchscreen and no cowl, with a "trench" splitting out the lower section.

In the new Mercedes-Benz CLA Class, the MBUX experience is expanded.

The new CLA-Class's interior appears to be lifted right out of the A-Class, with two free-standing, monolithic screens for instrumentation and infotainment. Gesturing towards the rear-view mirror can also control the reading light. Mercedes is making a big deal that the CLA's MBUX infotainment system, which debuted in the A-class in early 2018, has already been improved.

Like the A-Class hatch, the CLA can be equipped with a comprehensive suite of active safety features to match the latest S-Class limousine with automated emergency braking and lane keeping assistance as standard on every model, while adaptive cruise control that is linked to Global Positioning System sat nav data and has semi-autonomous functionality in heavy traffic, as well as multi beam LED headlights, will also available.

"This is not the only new feature by which the CLA offers a great deal of automotive intelligence".

Starting with the most obvious change, the new CLA gets a radical new look.

While the previous-gen CLA is now on sale in India (priced between Rs 34.38-36.99 lakh, ex-showroom, pan-India), this secxond-gen model is unlikely to launch in our market.

Beyond that, Mercedes-AMG is also expected to reveal the CLA45 and CLA45 S at the Geneva motor show in March.
