2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 Overview

New/Notable

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 is an entry-level compact 4-door sedan with a selection of available packages. It competes with the Audi A3 and the Acura ILX. This year, it receives revised front-end styling options and new standard interior and safety equipment.

Two trims are available: the base CLA 250 and the high-performance AMG CLA 45.

Exterior
The sleek exterior of the CLA 250 features a wide-mouth front end, sharp headlights, and Mercedes’ signature diamond-block grille. Standard features include power/heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators and 17-inch alloy wheels. The available Sport Package has a new AMG front bumper that appears more aggressive and aerodynamic than the previous offering. The Night Package comes with gloss black accents and 18-inch AMG multi-spoke wheels in addition to the Sport Package. Panoramic moonroof, LED headlights and taillights, an illuminated star emblem, and a rear spoiler are also available.

Under the Hood
The CLA 250 has a 208-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. It comes standard with a front-wheel drive (FWD) configuration, but all-wheel drive (AWD) is also available. Fuel economy for the CLA 250 with FWD has an EPA-estimated 26/38 mpg city/highway; and 24/33 mpg with the AWD configuration. The AMG CLA 45 has boosted performance to 375-hp, but fuel economy diminishes to 23/31 mpg.

Interior
Inside, the 5-seat CLA 250 has a premium two-tone interior with a great selection of color and material options. It comes standard with dual-zone automatic climate control, power driver’s seat with memory feature, split folding backseat, and an updated infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen. An integrated navigation system, wood trim, leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a Harmon Kardon premium audio system are also available.

Safety

The CLA 250 offers several impressive standard safety features, including a backup camera, an Attention Assist driver-drowsiness monitor, forward collision warning with automatic braking, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. A blindspot monitoring system, lane keep assist, and adaptive cruise control are also available. The AMG CLA 45 has high-performance brakes, adaptive sport suspension, and a sport exhaust system.
