  • The Mercedes Benz CLC/CLA has been caught with lesser disguise
  • It's currently undergoing hot-weather testing
  • The CLA/CLC is based on the A-Class (MFA) platform
  • Expect a wide range of petrol and diesel mills, including a stonking turbocharged AMG unit
  • SLS-AMG themed interior is no surprise
  • Base price should be around 25,000 Pounds

Worried that the CLA /CLC will not be fast enough?

Worry no more!

Mercedes is working on a CLA that has the potential to wet your pants. And then dry them with optional heated-seats.

2013 Mercedes Benz CLC - The new entry-level Merc set for NY debut-mercedescla45amgprototype.jpg

Here are some note-worthy points:
  • The CLA 45 AMG will be powered by a 2-liter turbocharged 4-pot mill that's capable of churning out a mind-boggling 330 horses! That's not far off from the S4's figures.
  • Incidentally and not surprisingly, this is the same engine that does / will do duty in the A-45 AMG.
  • All that power will be harnessed by a competent all-wheel-drive system and a good 'box.
  • Fortunately, camouflage cannot hide the larger brakes, bumper intakes and those dual-exhausts.

Dubai is always one of the summer testing destination for Mercedes because of the available Daimler facility in Jebel Ali. I have seen the CLA and S-class being tested on Emirates road. Could not take pictures as I was driving alone.

Update :-

First official images of the Mercedes-Benz CLA have been leaked, ahead of its January public debut in Detroit.

Based on the new A-Class, the CLA is about 4.60 meters (181.1 inches) long and will be offered at first with three gasoline engines and a diesel: CLA 180 with 122 HP (90 kW), CLA 200 with 156 HP (115 kW), CLA 250 with 211 HP (155 kW) and the more frugal CLA 220 CDI with 170 HP (125 kW). In September next year, Mercedes-Benz will reveal the range-topping A45 AMG which is rumored to offer 335 HP (246 kW).

There will also be a newly developed 4MATIC all wheel drive system for MFA Mercs which will make its debut in the CLA.

Some more pics of the 2013 Mercedes Benz CLC/CLA but this time the pics are NOT SPYSHOTS but of 1:18 Diecast model which gives away the Mercedes CLA Class almost entirely.

Enjoy!!
