Since its debut in 2014, the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class hasn’t seen many changes. For 2020, the Mercedes-Benz CLA has been completely overhauled. Featuring an all-new coupe design, sensual crafted elements and a slew of interior technology, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA is set to delight drivers around the world. With an exterior that adds unprecedented beauty to the class, the interior of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA may, in fact, be the centerpiece. Step inside, and you’ll find plenty of interior technology and a layout that is decidedly focused on maximizing every bit of enjoyment per mile that passes beneath its stretched and composed form.
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA is slightly larger than the first-generation model while serving as a more expressive alternative to the new A-Class Sedan. In fact, the new CLA is longer, narrower, and lower than its predecessor, faros that helps it be more aerodynamic than ever before. The main differentiator over the traditional A-Class Sedan is the rapidly-sloping, fastback-style roof.
As with the 2019 A-Class, part of the 2020 CLA’s charm is how it brings features and technologies more typically associated with Mercedes’ more expensive models, like the S-Class, to a more affordable price point. Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC adaptive cruise control, for instance, is an option, and can tap into navigation data to proactively adjust the car’s speed when corners and turning circles approach. New camera and radar systems can monitor more than 1,600 feet in front of the CLA, and there’s now Active Lane Change Assist.
On the outside, it looks like a shrunken C-Class, which makes it not only better looking than the Audi A3 sedan it will compete with but far better looking than the old CLA-Class. That old car looks like it’s melting, especially from directly behind it. This new one looks far better and is far more cohesive of a design. It’s still just a touch odd when looking at it in profile, but it’s a significant improvement over the dumpy look CLA and it looks rather handsome.
