All-new Mercedes-Benz CLA to debut in January 2019, excited?


Mercedes-Benz will be debuting its all-new Mercedes-Benz CLA at the coming 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas happening from 8 to 11 January next month. The second-generation four-door coupe is the second spin-off from the new W177 A-Class hatchback’s platform after the A-Class sedan.

Without giving away too many details, the three-pointed star promises that the new CLA will be the “most emotional vehicle of its class” just like its predecessor when it first debut in 2013. Unlike the more practical A-Class sedan, the CLA represents a more dynamic alternative with a sloping roofline and sleek body lines.

Updated MBUX to be featured on the new CLA

The company is also ready to introduce an improved version of the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system with newly added functions in understanding operation requests, augmented reality for navigation and can better comprehend indirect voice commands.

Expect the CLA to feature all the powertrain options available on the new A-Class including the 1.33-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol with 163 hp and 250 Nm of torque. The CLA will be front-wheel driven by default while the 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system will be available as an option.
