Engine and Drive

From the generalized point of view, the CLA’s 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine may not sound all that exciting. It has a basic 208 horsepower, and its 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission powers either the front or all four wheels. However, one should keep in mind that the real magic is in the engine’s torque, as it possesses a powerful 258 lb-ft at 1,250 rpm to 4,000 rpm. This secret supercar provides smooth and strong acceleration no matter the gear you happen to be in. Moreover, fuel economy provides to be quite satisfactory, as front-wheel-drive models get about 36 mph on the highway. 

The front-wheel-drive has a very good handle on it and though it’s better to opt for all-wheel-drive, it may only appear to be a small difference. However, transitioning to Sport mode really takes it up a notch, as you’ll see that the 2018 CLA zooms off, mainly on account of good quantity of low-end torque and its 7-speed automatic. The steering is pleasant and provides a great response. The AWD makes for a better moderator overall and also adds all-weather functionality. 


The design on the body of the 2010 Mercedes CLA is nothing short of brilliant, especially with its strong and sleek shape, as well as impressive grille detailing, creating a magical experience for the driver and another Mercedes classic. 

The standard 250 trim has a sporty look to it, more so due to its optional choices for a larger wheel. However, the 45 pressed forward with a more intense and even more contoured appearance. The front air intakes are expanded, however, the ornate mesh grille is swapped out for straightforward silver blades. Additionally, the lower-rear ducts make the CLA’s “Turbo” feature known.

Interior and Features

Infotainment features include Bluetooth, a USB input, HD audio, all managed by the command dial on the center console.
