Mercedes Planning More CLA to Best VW GTI Performance

Feb 20, 2013

We had the to sit down with some of the from Mercedes-Benz USA, who us a little insight into the brand behind the three-pointed is planning for our market.

Starting the brand’s newest model – the – we have good news for of the fetching four-door coupe: will offer a limited-run 1 special variant in the U.S. We reported that it would be a affair, but Americans will get all of the upgrades as the European Edition 1, the eye-searing interior trim and exterior color palette. 750 have been allotted for the (the most of any region), and be available for the CLA250 with or 4Matic all-wheel drive. hasn’t been announced for the 1, but the base CLA250 will at $30,805 including destination it goes on sale at the end of the year.

The special-edition car will use the same turbo-four as other CLA models, is good for 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and is to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Mercedes wouldn’t disclose economy figures for the CLA, told us to expect better than the current C250 that car is rated at 22/31 mpg However, the CLA250 is expected to be than the C250 – the older makes the 0-to-60-mph run in 7.1 seconds, the CLA is estimated to do it in 6.5 to 6.7 seconds. That make the CLA250 ever-so-slightly fuel efficient and faster to 60 mph the venerable Volkswagen GTI, with

200 hp, is rated at 21/31 mpg and does the to 60 mph in 6.8 seconds. Speaking of speed, European specifications for the hotter AMG rate its 2.0-liter turbo-four at 360 hp and 332 That car will make its debut at the New York auto at the end of March.

Diesels and Four-Cylinders

Could be a diesel in the cards for the CLA? says that while it is it’s not currently in the cards. It is to keep the model mix simple and reconsider additional models on what buyers demand. who want an oil-burner can choose the existing offerings in the GL-, and S-Classes, but will also get to a new four-cylinder turbo-diesel in either the BlueTec or E250 BlueTec. In of those models, Mercedes is to make the diesel a more-affordable the E250 will be the price for the E-Class family and the GLK250 be priced between the GLK350 drive and 4Matic models. 2014 E-Class pricing been released yet, the GLK diesel to start somewhere $38,000 to $40,000.

For now, the turbo-diesel will be the four-cylinder available in the E-Class. don’t think Mercedes be following suit with 528i and Audi’s A6 2.0T – we lead to believe that a gas cylinder would make its way the next-generation (W213) E-Class due for the model year. In the meantime, looking to downsize their will have to turn to the E550 replacement next which will use a twin-turbocharged

Also on the compact end of the Mercedes-Benz with the introduction of its new Electric Smart is hoping to shift its to one-third electric, two-thirds ForTwos. However, despite saying otherwise, Smart not show its next-generation car at the upcoming show or any time soon.
