Turbo Engine Power
The new-generation CLA 250 is equipped with a new, powerful and efficent turbocharged 2.0L inline-4 engine capable of 221hp (+13 hp compared to predecessor) and 258 lb-ft of torque. The CLA engine combines turbocharging with numerous advances to deliver more power from less fuel. 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA performance is not only powerful but fast as well, with the ability to go from a standstill to 60 mph in just 6.3 seconds.
Dual-Clutch Automatic Transmission
Paired with the CLA engine, the racing-inspired 7-speed transmission combines the sporty response of a manual, the smooth refinement of an automatic, and better efficiency than either. Dual clutches offer quicker gear changes than a human can shift a traditional manual gearbox, while three overdrive ratios boost highway efficiency. DYNAMIC SELECT® offers selectable ECO, Sport, and Comfort modes that let you favor fully automatic efficiency and comfort, intensified response, or experience shift-for-yourself excitement via the steering wheel-mounted shift paddles.
The CLA offers the very latest driving assistance systems with cooperative driver support, providing the highest level of active safety in this segment with functions adopted from the S-Class. For the first time, the CLA is able to drive semi-autonomously in certain situations. To do so, it keeps a close eye on the traffic situation. Improved camera and radar systems allow it to see up to 1,640 feet (500 meters) ahead; the CLA also uses map and navigation data to support assistance functions.
The CLA front-wheel drive system is an ideal match for its nimble handling and efficient packaging. Impeccable calibration of the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and Electronic Traction System (ETS) enhances tire bite under hard acceleration, while equal-length driveshafts virtually eliminate undesirable torque steer.
In terms of driving dynamics, the new CLA keeps the promise of its sporty design: a wider track and a lower center of gravity are the two key features that give the CLA the sportiest driving characteristics of our models in the new generation of compact Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
