The 2014 Mercedes CLA is set to arrive sometime in late 2013, possibly in September at a dealer near you. The new premium compact four door design will be around the same size as the popular 190 class from the 1980’s. Mercedes is looking forward and can see the need to downsize a luxury car to meet the tighter budgets and current buying demand. The small size and price will truly open up the 2014 Mercedes CLA to a new customer base along with a commitment to build quality and performance in every CLA Mercedes builds.
The new 2014 Mercedes CLA brings a lot to the table in offerings. The exterior is the first thing that grabs your attention. The body lines are sexy and very aggressive. The tall vertical grill and large air intakes give the appearance of an AMG kit and the frameless windows are extremely modern and give this car some serious personality.
The 2014 Mercedes CLA will have plenty of spunk under the hood via a 2.0 liter turbocharged four cylinder engine, producing 208 horsepower and a peak 258 lb-ft of torque at the ready. Shifting will be smooth and crisp with the dual clutch seven speed automatic bringing the 3,300 lb Benz to a top speed of around 150 mph.
For the price the interior is very nice and well laid out. The leather is nice and the seating is comfortable. The Standard safety features that are found on the 2014 Mercedes CLA may not be visible but are very amazing like the new collision prevention that uses radar. The CLA sees obstacles in the road before you can and can apply the proper amount of brake pressure to stop safely. There is a sensor that watches your eyes and will send an alarm through the speakers to wake you up if it detects that you are drowsy.
The all new 2014 Mercedes CLA has much to offer the consumer in style, performance and value. You can have one for under thirty grand, what a value!
