The coupé, excitingly reinterpreted.

The CLA Coupé displays the classic coupé proportions: a high, taut beltline, flat window areas and a long bonnet.

Forward thrust, state-of-the art, sporty.
The unusually striking lines together with the surfaces curved both inwards and outwards give the CLA Coupé its avantgarde, sporty character. Typical for a coupé are its windows: frameless or framed in chrome or high-sheen black (depending on equipment), they bestow upon the vehicle a special air of elegance and class. The roofline sweeps gently into the rear end, where the bumper with integral tailpipe trim elements and the striking spoiler lip provide an irresistible finale. Literally a highlight: the characteristic shape of the rear lights, optionally in full LED.
In keeping with its innovative design, the CLA is also available in designo magno polar silver matt paintwork or in other innovative paintwork.

Nothing is more attractive than character.

Imposing designs and distinctive lines lend the front its sporty, dominant character. Beneath it the succinctly styled front bumper, the diamond radiator grille and the bonnet with two powerdomes.

The interior design.
The racy contours of the vehicle body are present in the car's interior. This exclusive value appeal is underscored by high-quality materials and first-class workmanship – both on the outside of the vehicle and on the inside. Every single seam, every shade of colour and every trim element – in a word, every detail, demonstrates again the high-value sporty character of the CLA.

The focal point of the cockpit is the free-standing 8-inch media display (available as an option with various design and equipment lines) with an innovative smartphone look. Many of the controls and edgings are in silver chrome with a metallic surface and delight with their high-class touch and feel. The extensive use of aluminium, wood or carbon fibre trim underlines the CLA's commitment to premium quality.

VIP seats as standard.

The standard-fit sports seats underscore the sporty character of the interior. They offer very good lateral support, a pleasant seat climate and a high degree of safety.

Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive.

Energising comfort and exemplary safety.

Be it at rush hour, during a long drive at night or on an unfamiliar route – your CLA Coupé noticeably takes the strain, particularly in stressful situations. This is based on a concept that all our vehicles embody and which makes every journey in a Mercedes unique: Intelligent Drive. Because the time you spend behind the wheel is your time. Time for relaxation. Time to replenish your energy. So that, first and foremost, you reach your destination safely, but are also always relaxed when you get there.

Find out more about the Intelligent Drive technologies in the CLA Coupé.

ACTIVE BRAKE ASSIST

This innovative driver assistance system automatically helps drivers to keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front and takes the strain off them on long journeys and in stop-and-go traffic.

In stop-and-go traffic, Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC applies the brakes automatically – if necessary, until the vehicle comes to a complete stop. If the system registers that heavier braking is required, an intermittent warning tone is sounded and a warning symbol lights up in the instrument cluster.

ATTENTION ASSIST – The Alertness Assistant.

Based on the driver's steering behaviour the system detects typical signs of fatigue and severe inattentiveness and issues visual and audible warnings of impending microsleep.

DYNAMIC SELECT – Driving pleasure is an attitude.

With DYNAMIC SELECT the vehicle characteristics of your CLA Coupé can be adjusted at the touch of a button – comfortable, sporty, efficient or completely individual.

Parameters such as engine, transmission and steering characteristics are modified in accordance with the drive mode chosen.

The exterior design of the Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 Coupé.

The facelift adds further emphasis to its dynamic look. The AMG radiator grille with a twin louvre and the characteristic AMG front apron in an A-wing design shape the distinctive front.

The front splitter insert plus high-gloss black flics improve the flow of cooling air. The new 19-inch cross-spoke light-alloy wheels impress from the side. The aerodynamically optimised tail end rounds off the expressive overall impression. It's clear from the outset: you're always out in front in a compact racer from AMG.

The interior design of the Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 Coupé.

Anyone settling into the AMG performance seats with their stronger contouring and integrated head restraints is met with high-quality materials and sporty elegance.

The seating surface and armrest offer even better lateral support and emphasise the sporty look of the interior. And the now-standard AMG E-SELECT lever and the optionally available AMG performance steering wheel complete the dynamic-looking interior. All that remains now: fasten seat belts and full power ahead.

The drive system of the Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 Coupé.

When it comes to setting standards you'll always find AMG in the fast lane. The best example of this is the 2.0-litre unit in the Mercedes-AMG CLA 45. Generating 280 kW, it impresses both with its output and its efficiency.

The NEDC consumption is just 6.9 l/100 km. A technical masterpiece, then, hand-made according to the "One Man – One Engine" principle. In other words: true passion for racing that you can feel all the time. Or hear – in the unmistakable sound signature of the AMG sports exhaust system.

Driving dynamics in the Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 Coupé.

The next step for driving dynamics? The AMG DYNAMIC PLUS package in the Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 Coupé. It includes the manually controlled AMG front axle locking differential. For optimum traction in all driving situations.

The AMG performance steering wheel, the AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with adaptive damping control plus the "Race" drive program are part of the package. It lives up to its name: "Race" is configured for maximum driving dynamics and is ideal for hunting best times. On the race track. Not on the way to the baker's.

Optimum operability in the Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 Coupé.

Perfect handling calls for optimum operability. The AMG DRIVE UNIT takes care of that. It is the central command centre for the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission and the DYNAMIC SELECT drive programs.

The AMG high-performance braking system delivers excellent deceleration and precise metering. The AMG Aerodynamics package with large front splitters plus additional flics on the front apron increase the downforce. So that you can allow the AMG light-alloy wheels unbridled freedom.

Technologies in the Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 Coupé.

What do AMG drivers and AMG engineers have in common? They are petrol heads. This is proven by the world's most powerful series-production 4-cylinder turbocharged engine delivering 280 kW (381 hp).

A twin-scroll turbocharger ensures immediate response and maximum agility with up to 475 Nm of torque. Thanks to AMG Performance 4MATIC the potential is optimally distributed to all four wheels. The optional AMG DYNAMIC PLUS package with a manually controlled front axle locking differential increases traction even further.
