It’s that time of the year when our bank accounts cry for mercy. Naturally, it’s a busy time for automakers as they hustle to get our attention on their vehicles. This time round, it’s Mercedes-Benz’s turn, and they want you to notice their CLA.
The German car giant has announced the launch of the ‘Urban Sport’ variant of their slick-looking CLA-class sedan. The petrol-powered version is priced at Rs 35.99 lakh whereas the diesel variant is priced at Rs 36.99 lakh (ex-showroom). Compared to the Sport variant, that’s a difference of Rs 1.45 lakh and Rs 1.97 lakh respectively.
What’s new? Not much, really. It starts off with a new ‘Cosmos Black’ paint scheme, a carbon-finish spoiler and a ‘Sport’ badge on the outside. Every other detail of the vehicle is identical to the top-spec variant of the CLA otherwise. Step inside, and you will be greeted with dual-zone climate control (a feature that was available on the pre-facelift model), and ‘Sport’ branded mats and door sills.
...aaaand that’s it. Expectedly, there are no mechanical changes at all. The baby Merc gets the familiar 2.0-litre petrol and 2.2-litre diesel engines that develop 184PS/300Nm and 136PS/300Nm respectively. The petrol hits 100kmph in just 7.1 seconds whereas the diesel takes a leisurely 9 seconds.
2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan
Mercedes-Benz’s small sedan has been quite popular in India since it gives most an affordable entry point into the world of the three-pointed star. On a global level though, Mercedes has served up the A-Class sedan, which we believe will eventually take the CLA’s place in the Indian market. The next-gen CLA (reportedly in the works) is likely to move a notch higher in terms of size and price.Recommended Variant : CLA 200 CDI
