Mercedes-AMG® CLA Coupe
How do you upstage the most powerful car in its class? With more. The AMG® CLA 45 now has 382 handcrafted horsepower, and an even more seductive shape. And it’s joined by a fresh expression of passion, power and panache: The 302-hp AMG® CLA 35.
The digital cockpit of the AMG® CLA coupes is furnished and finished to make you feel at one with the car’s performance prowess. Deeply bolstered seats, crisp displays and ergonomically designed controls support your every driving move, while also letting you and your passengers ride in composed comfort. A selection of styling options amplify the presence each AMG® CLA coupe asserts with its own distinctive grille and lower bodywork. Each model offers no fewer than four 18-inch and 19-inch AMG® wheel choices. Exterior packages can add bold black accents and functional aerodynamic enhancements.* The standard flat-bottom steering wheel features Touch Control Buttons, shift paddles and Nappa leather trim. Three AMG® Performance options let you wrap their contoured rim in Nappa leather, grippy DINAMICA microsuede, or a combination of both. You can also add the AMG® DRIVE UNIT performance controls. Standard dual 10.25-inch digital displays include a central multimedia touchscreen and reconfigurable instruments with AMG®-exclusive design, readouts and menus. An available Head-Up Display projects key driving information closer to your natural line of sight.** Standard power front seats are deeply bolstered, with integrated head restraints inspired by racing seats. Even racier AMG® Performance front seats are available. A range of upholstery colors can be complimented by a choice of aluminum and natural-grain wood trim options.
A Mercedes-AMG® engine only starts with the state of the art. From there, everything from fuel pressure to exhaust routing is developed to quicken, heighten and intensify its response, and yours. Developed for AMG®’s racecars, patented NANOSLIDE® cylinder walls cut friction, raising endurance and power. Two 2.0L turbo engines turn the AMG® CLA family into a double rush. A 302-hp liquid-to-air intercooled twin-scroll turbo rushes the CLA 35 to 60 in 4.8 seconds. A handcrafted 382-hp engine, the most powerful 4-cylinder in a production car, thrusts the CLA 45 to 60 in just 4.0 seconds.‡ Dual-clutch AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® transmissions can change gears more quickly than a human. Both the CLA 35’s 7-speed and CLA 45’s 8-speed offer a range of modes and manual paddle shifts, plus a RACE START function for the 8-speed. Partial ignition cutoff during upshifts and rev-matched downshifts enhance response, feel and sound. AMG® DYNAMIC SELECT lets you alter the shifting, throttle, all-wheel drive and more via a console button. Modes include Comfort, Slippery, Sport+, and make-your-own Individual, plus RACE on the CLA 45. The available AMG® DRIVE UNIT places drive-mode controls with color displays right on the steering wheel. §
Knowing how to send power to the pavement is the core of AMG® performance, and the AMG® CLA coupes are more brilliant than ever. Advanced all-wheel drive teams with agile chassis setups to turn AMG®’s racing experience in to your driving thrills. AMG® High-Performance Braking Systems rein in power and speed with 4-piston fixed front calipers grasping standard 13.8-inch perforated discs. The AMG® Dynamic PLUS Package further endows the CLA 45 with 14.2-inch front discs and red 6-piston calipers.§§ Rigid, lightweight components and sport-tuning add up to handling precision from the double-wishbone front/multilink rear AMG® Sport Suspension. Available AMG® RIDE CONTROL can adapt the damping rate at each wheel in milliseconds. Three modes offer an ideal setup from daily commuting to track-day cornering. Electromechanical clutch packs and constant calculation of driving inputs, speed and g-forces allow AMG® Performance 4MATIC® to quickly send torque to the tires that can use it best. Rear-axle torque-vectoring further sharpens the CLA 45’s AMG® Performance 4MATIC®+.^ With the AMG® Dynamic PLUS Package, a steering wheel with AMG® DRIVE UNIT buttons connects you to the AMG® RIDE CONTROL multimode suspension. Red calipers call out the larger, composite brakes. And AMG® Track Pace lets you record and analyze your track driving skills.

*Lower-aspect-ratio tires and accompanying wheels provide substantially increased treadwear, increased tire noise and reduced ride comfort. Serious wheel and tire damage may occur if the vehicle is operated on rough or damaged road surfaces or upon encountering road debris or obstacles. These tires are not designed for use on snow and ice. Winter tires mounted on appropriately sized and approved wheels are recommended for driving in those conditions. Models equipped with Extended Mobility tires are not provided with a spare wheel. Vehicle is provided with TIREFIT sealant and a portable air pump in lieu of a spare wheel. ‡ Stated rates of acceleration are based upon manufacturer’s track results and may vary depending on model, environmental and road surface conditions, driving style, elevation and vehicle load. § Features are not for use on public roads or where people, animals or obstacles may be within range of the vehicle. Always obey local laws. See Operator’s Manual for additional warnings and information. §§Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake maintenance, and tire and road conditions. See Operator’s Manual for additional information and warnings. ^No system, regardless of how advanced, can overcome the laws of physics or correct careless driving. Please always wear your seat belt. Performance is limited by available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions. Best performance in snow is obtained with winter tires.
