Changes are not confined to the dermal makeovers alone. The CLA Urban sport gets a THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control with 2 climate zones that offers individual climate comfort for driver and front passenger. Temperature, airflow and air distribution are controlled automatically in this system. There are also rear center vents for faster cooling of the rear end.

The Urban Sport has the same mechanicals underneath, with the 184Hp petrol and 136Hp diesel 4 cylinder (L4) mills still doing the job. 100kmph comes in 7.1 seconds on the petrol and in 9 seconds on the diesel.

Speaking on the launch, Roland Folger, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India said, “The CLA remains a key product in our New Generation Cars portfolio and has created a benchmark for sporty design and performance. The new CLA Urban Sport offers enhanced luxury and comfort and add a sporty appeal that is hard to miss. It is essentially an illustration of dynamic design that seamlessly embodies an intelligent combination of functionality and agility in a modern coupé design. The CLA has been instrumental in conveying Mercedes-Benz’s new design language of sensual purity and has made a place of its own in the hearts and minds of many young patrons and enthusiasts, who tend to arrive in style.”

Mr. Folger added, “The CLA makes for an attractive value proposition for our discerning customers who not only enjoy the driving dynamics but also expect a hassle free ownership experience from Mercedes-Benz. The specially designed service and finance packages make buying and owning the CLA a delightful experience.
