Mercedes-Benz CLA250 sedan revealed: More power from the baby 'Benz

The new CLA is the fifth Mercedes-Benz to be based on the new MFA2 platform, also found in the A-Class hatch and saloon, long-wheelbase A-Class and new B-Class. When the new CLA goes on sale globally, it will be offered with both diesel and petrol engines, with both manual and dual clutch transmissions and all-wheel drive as well.

A decoupled multi-link rear axle will be offered, with active adaptive damping available as an option. The largest tyre and wheel combination available will be 225/40 R19 wrapped over 19-inch wheels. The rear of the auto features narrow tail-lights created to make the vehicle appear even wider.

This new Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe is expected to make its way to India within the 2019-20 financial year, possibly after the launch of the Mercedes A-Class sedan in 2019. According to Mercedes-Benz, in making this new CLA, a near complete rethink has resulted in moving the cabin slightly backwards, growing the length, and lowering of the bonnet line has resulted in a more harmonious, rather cheekier and sleeker looking vehicle than its predecessor. Whether you prefer the CLS or the CLA, one thing is undeniable: The new CLA looks far better than the bulbous, stubby outgoing CLA. However, boot space capacity is slightly down with 460 litres on offer compared with 470 litres in the previous model.

The CLA has the youngest average customers of all Mercedes models, so the firm has focused on a high-tech theme for the interior. The all-new CLA-Class shares the same wheelbase as the all-new A-Class sedan and hatchback.

The result, announced early on Thursday, means the first electoral transfer of power in 59 years of independence in the DRC. The delay in announcing results has led some Congolese to suspect possible manipulation in favor of the ruling party.

The optional Interior Assistant feature adds gesture controls, allowing the infotainment center to be operated by an occupant's motions alone, rather than by interaction with a control. The cabin lighting is all gesture-controlled, which is quite nifty.

The range engine range has not been disclosed by Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe, but discloses it will include most of the engines from A-Class. Automatic emergency braking, active lane control, and blind-spot monitors will be spend-up extras, but Mercedes says that the CLA-Class will be able to drive itself "semi-autonomously in certain situations", though it didn't say for how long or what those situations may be.

In Europe, Mercedes sold 933,697 passenger cars, 2.3% fewer than in 2017.

Starting with the most obvious change, the new CLA gets a radical new look.
