2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class Buyer's Guide

Much like the CLA-Class is doing among the smaller premium sedans, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class is setting the bar in one of the newer crossover categories, jumping out to an early sales lead amongst the growing crop of subcompact premium entries. Of course, the similarities don’t end there, as the nimble GLA250 also plots a sharp new course for crossover design, thanks to sports-car-like proportions and some cleverly contoured sheet metal. Also a further bonus, the chiseled good looks of the GLA-Class were created with a keen eye on aerodynamics, helping serve up both a quiet, refined cabin and quite impressive EPA grades. But beyond its city-friendly setup, the GLA-Class also bolsters its crossover credibility by introducing the brand’s next-generation 4Matic all-wheel-drive technology, enhanced by fully variable torque distribution.

What makes it move?

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class takes an unapologetically next-gen approach to powertrains, with a standard 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbo that’s mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. To be clear, that starter setup is in a front-wheel-drive configuration—although MB’s 4Matic AWD is an option—and additionally combines outputs of 208 hp and 258 lb.-ft. of torque with stellar EPA ratings of up to 26 mpg city/38 mpg highway/30 mpg combined; with the 4Matic system deployed, that line comes to 24 mpg city/33 mpg highway/27 mpg combined.

Why buy the 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class?

The brand’s self-styled “style rebel” does indeed provide an unforgettable exterior, complete with LED-enhanced lighting and diamond-patterned grille, but 2015 CLA-Class also combines that beautiful form with the kind of advanced functionality that drivers demand from any Mercedes product. That includes, for example, a standard “mbrace” connectivity system that relies on cloud-based technology for smartphone integration and access to multiple Mercedes concierge services.

For drivers who want premium performance in a more athletic package, the CLA45 AMG boasts the most powerful four-cylinder production engine in the world: a 2.0-liter turbocharged unit that can unleash 355 hp and 332 lb.-ft. of torque. Unsurprisingly, that output is matched to a similarly impressive “Performance 4MATIC” system for a 0-60 time of 4.4 seconds and an electronically limited terminal velocity of 155 mph.
