When you think “coupe,” you think smooth handling and precise maneuverability — and that’s exactly what the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA performance delivers. Available in three trims, the new CLA Coupe offers a level of power, efficiency, and handling for Bloomfield Hills drivers of all stripes. Learn more about the 2019 CLA 250, CLA 250 4MATIC®, and AMG® CLA 45 below, and find out which trim best suits your driving style.

CLA Engines & Fuel Economy

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA is offered in two non-AMG® trims: CLA 250 and CLA 250 4MATIC®. Both are powered by a 2.0L turbo inline-4 engine rated at 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. As of this writing, official mpg ratings haven’t been released by Mercedes-Benz, but according to www.fueleconomy.gov, the 2019 CLA 250 earns 24 mpg city/37 mpg highway and the 2019 CLA 250 4MATIC® earns 24 mpg city/32 mpg highway.

CLA Performance & Handling Features

Whether you’re running errands around Southfield or sailing down the highways, the CLA Coupe offers the performance and handling features you need for a smooth or sporty ride. Here are a few highlights:

  • ECO-START®: This system automatically turns off the engine at stoplights and in other idle situations to conserve fuel. Simply lift your foot off the brake pedal to restart the engine.
  • DYNAMIC SELECT®: Jump from ECO, Comfort, Sport, and Individual (a la carte) modes to get the throttle response, shifting, and steering feedback you want.
  • Dual-Clutch Transmission: Motorsports-inspired, the 7G-DCT 7-speed dual-clutch transmission artfully changes gears and includes three overdrive ratios to increase highway fuel-efficiency.
  • Available 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive: Want a little extra traction on Birmingham roadways? This intelligent system distributes torque to the wheels that need it most and adjusts to changing driving conditions on the fly.

AMG® Performance

If you want a punch of power, consider the 2019 AMG® CLA 45. Under the hood, you’ll find a handcrafted 375-hp AMG® 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder — the most powerful 4-cylinder in production. It produces up to 350 lb-ft of torque and accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds. Of course, that’s not all. The AMG® CLA 45 is equipped with the latest and greatest performance developments from Mercedes-AMG®, which include:

  • AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® DCT 7-speed dual-clutch transmission
  • AMG® DYNAMIC SELECT® (includes ECO, Comfort, Sport, Sport+, and Individual)
