4-cylinder diesel engines

The CLA has that special something – both in its looks and in its nature. The direct-injection 4-cylinder diesel engines deliver adequate power reserves and efficient propulsion. They boast a hefty torque and an immediate response, even in the lower engine speed range.

At the same time the diesel engines are modest when it comes to fuel consumption, are low on emissions and impress with their significantly improved quiet-running characteristics and their reduced vibrations.

Customers can choose from the CLA 180 CDI, CLA 200 CDI and CLA 220 CDI models.

State-of-the-art technology: The fourth-generation common-rail diesel technology boasts an injection pressure that has been increased to 2000 bar, optimised combustion chambers and - depending on the engine variant - precision solenoid valve injectors. Improved ignition pressure and a turbocharger with a variable nozzle turbine ensure a high torque in every engine speed range.

Clean technology: measures such as tyres with low rolling resistance, intelligently controlled ancillaries and optimised aerodynamics all help to sustainably increase the vehicle's efficiency. The CLA 220 CDI already meets the requirements of the Euro 6 emissions class.

Easy on the environment: The standard ECO start/stop function ensures that the engine is temporarily switched off if the vehicle is stationary, thereby saving fuel. In addition, the ECO display in the instrument cluster provides information about how efficient the driver's driving style is, prompting them to modify their behaviour and thereby reducing fuel consumption.
