Why We Are So Excited about the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA

Mercedes-Benz has a long history of creating some of the finest luxury vehicles on the market. While fans always look forward to whatever Mercedes has to offer, there’s no denying that they’ve really outdone themselves with the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA.

New, Sleeker Look

Mercedes always creates great looking vehicles, but the CLA might just be the best yet. Basically, they have created a new “mini” look for the CLS that scaled its sleek style to a smaller body. This creates a sportier vehicle with better top speed and fuel efficiency. It also comes with new frameless windows and emphasized shoulder lines. This gives it a tougher, more aggressive look that combines well with the sloping nose.

All New Increased Power!

Don’t let the smaller size fool you; the 2014 CLS sports a 2.0 L V4 turbocharged engine capable of 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. It also comes with a seven-speed automatic transmission with a dual-clutch option for easier control and a top speed of 149 mph!

Easier Control

Such power needs a proper harness, and the CLS accommodates. It has strut front suspension and a four-link rear design built right onto its subframe. It comes with all-season 17-inch tires while the Sport trim will come with 18-inch tires. Need to stop quick? The perforated front disc brakes will make that a snap. The all-wheel drive option operated by an electrohydraulic, multiplate clutch will help to evenly distribute power between the front and rear wheels to give you the kind of control you’ve always dreamed of.

Great New Technological Advances

The CLS has a series of infotainment and safety technological advances that help secure it firmly within the upper echelon of luxury vehicles. These include a radar-based collision prevention system, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitors, lane assistance, and parking sensors. Infotainment options include Bluetooth, smartphone connectivity, mbrace 2, 5.8 inch control screen, DVD changer, navigation system, voice commands, iPod interface, satellite radio, surround sound, and much more.

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA will be released later in 2013. Check back here regularly for any new information about the CLS as it’s released.
