Mercedes-Benz is strengthening its US presence with the introduction of second generation Mercedes-Benz CLA. The new Coupe boasts all of the virtues of the new-generation compact-car family with the latest Mercedes-Benz design language and the revolutionary MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience).

The new Mercedes-Benz CLA will also receive additional standard equipment features compared to its predecessor. Arriving in U.S. dealerships by late 2019, the 2020 CLA 250 will start from $36,650 and the CLA 250 4MATIC from $38,650.

The new CLA has grown in size compared to its predecessor, and its updated design underlines the sporty coupe character with its stretched form, while the redesigned interior showcases a dashboard with a free-standing widescreen display and touchscreen. Ambient lighting and newly designed air vents in turbine-look accentuate the modern interior.
