The next generation Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class will be in Australia in October.

Pricing and specifications for the latest Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class have been confirmed with the new model to be offered from $49,900.

That’s the price of the entry-level CLA 200, a variant that boasts a 1.6L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 115kW and 250Nm.

The CLA 250 Sport gets some AMG tweaks including diamond grille and 18” alloys and utilises a 155kW and 350Nm 2.0L 4-cylinder direct injection turbocharged engine. Pricing for the CLA 250 Sport starts at $63,400.

And finally, topping out the range is the CLA 45 AMG with 265kW and 450Nm delivered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine mated to the performance oriented 4MATIC All-Wheel Drive system.

Mercedes-Benz says the CLA 45 AMG accelerates from 0 – 100km/h in just 4.6 seconds.

Managing Director of Mercedes-Benz Cars Australia/Pacific Horst Von Sanden says the new CLA-Class should be popular with buyers.

“The new CLA-Class seamlessly transfers the expressive avant-garde coupé design into series production.”

“It redefines aerodynamic efficiency and emphasises the desire to provide our customers with cutting-edge technology and safety equipment.”

The new CLA-Class will be on sale in Australia in October.
