FAST FACTS

1. The most 4-cylinder car you can buy, the CLA 45 AMG makes 355 and 332 lb-ft of torque.

2. 0-60 just 4.6 seconds.

3. CLA models at $29,900 with the CLA 45 AMG at $47,450.

The styling apes the fast-back look Mercedes-Benz claims it with the larger CLS, but now more attainable to the masses by smaller. The design isn’t a copy panel-for-panel left to in the dryer, but is most of the way there. The shares themes with the E-Class and new S-Class, and in a busy lot, there’s a distinct of mistaken identity. The back its own game with wider, squared-off hips.

Driving the political power center of DC – ‘Benz’ chosen launch – and seeing roads crammed six-figure machines, the CLA could be counted on to turn heads. was more than one highway in surrounding states and an appreciative on a Maryland interstate.

That arched roofline is easy on the but doesn’t make the CLA easy to get The car from which it’s – the CLS – is based on the larger E-Class, still leaves plenty of for passengers. Not so the compact CLA… It is tighter, especially if you or your are over six-feet tall.

UNIQUE AMG LOOK

The rest of the is stylish and modern, including the eyeball vents, center and gauge cluster. Materials are decent, especially given the price the CLA will demand. A few bits revealed themselves the drive through the twisty in Virginia: the lower part of the where it meets with the can creak when leaned on enthusiastic cornering. Overall, it’s a minor issue.

Two of CLA are coming: the CLA 250 and the hoon-friendly 45 AMG. The uses a new 2.0-liter turbocharged found in products sold providing 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of Mercedes-Benz says it’ll hit 60 mph rest comfortably under seconds with a seven-speed automatic.

The 45 AMG is an entirely different Visually, it has bulkier fenders, a chin spoiler, bigger air and more up front, a trunk-lid deeper faux air extractors and big pipes out back, along unique 19-inch wheels.

Cabin changes over the 250 include seats with more lateral support, expensive trim pieces, and its lever sprouts from the console rather than on the column – a traditional Mercedes it looks awkward in the modern

WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL

Although the basic 2.0-liter engine is the same between the nearly everything has been and enlarged to handle the radically output. Power is 355 horsepower and 332 of torque, which are humongous over the CLA 250, and like the famous V8s and V12s, the four-banger is by one technician at AMGs German HQ.

The dual-clutch remains, although significantly beefed up. Where the 45 AMG the most on its plebeian sibling is the of standard 4MATIC all-wheel Although normally biased the front in regular driving to fuel, the instant that is detected – or you put your foot – and power automatically routes to the axle, up to a max 50:50 split.

Mercedes people claim the is the most powerful four-banger anywhere, and they’re not kidding. The Impreza STI is only 305, similarly-powered machines from BMW and use larger five- and six-cylinder The gains in acceleration are intense – the CLA 45 AMG to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds, which is performance-car territory. Thankfully, are bigger, wider wheels sticky tires, larger with beefier calipers, and a livelier suspension tune to it in check.

Like other AMG there’s also an optional Driver’s Package with tighter springs and dampers, wheels with performance red-painted brake calipers and a 167-mph top speed.

7-SPEEDS, TWO

The seven-speed dual-clutch automatic clean shifts, and the transmission can be manually via paddle-shifters behind the wheel, or using the console-mounted Even in sport mode, the aren’t quite as quick and as those in Volkswagen and Audi (which is disappointing), but it’s nonetheless.

Shift times can be faster by selecting S or M – for manual – but in C, the gets into seventh quickly and the engine start/stop is which keeps it from premium. Although official for the 45 AMG aren’t available yet, be somewhat worse than the CLA 26 MPG city and 38 highway.

WILD, YET REFINED

Like other models touched by in-house tuning shop, the CLA 45 is an monster. With such boost pressures from the turbocharger, you’d think the lag would be horrendous, but full comes to play very in the rev range.

The car devours roads a hungry wolverine: crouched aggressive and ticked off. And the small steroidal rodent, nominally more powerful know to stay the hell out of its

Plus, it sounds spectacular exhaust pipes that pop and immediately convey just how of a performance machine this is.

The 45 AMG some of the 250’s civility in how it drives and how it looks, but won’t your kidneys with damping, and like most cars excels at the long-distance cruise. Even the ‘small’ CLA can you into believing you’re 10 or 20 mph slower than you are, in speed-ticket-heaven like the DC region can get

However, even in-town, its footprint gives you confidence in situations, including nipping ugly commuting battles and parking, helped by the standard camera.

MOST AFFORDABLE AMG


pricing starts at $29,900 for the CLA 250 all the usual convenience features, the 45 AMG is a big jump to $47,450, but does plenty already going for it, the ability to perform just as in wet, grimy and slippery as it does in the dry. That’s AMG cars have never well, being firmly in sending power to two wheels but with 4MATIC-equipped muscle-sedans in E 63 AMG S and S 63 here’s hoping that more of the norm. Just sure those in Northern budget for some expensive tires…

The CLA is playing in a field by since both BMW and Audi are their small coupe, and hatch offerings. There be a new 2 Series coupe and hopefully a 1 hatch or sedan; the new A3 will be a sedan. However, none of are coming online in the next of years, so ‘Benz played its just right – much how it did with the CLS.

Currently, the Audi S4 is the closest going, although it is larger, powerful, slower and a few thousand more expensive to start.

THE

Unless you’re consistently with four people – in case the C-Class makes sense – then the CLA 45 AMG gets a thumbs up from here. the usual gripes from the no one will filibuster the CLA’s here, nor its appeal as a sports Oops! Coupe.
