The CLA is set to establish a new segment, with world-leading aerodynamics and avant-garde coupe design.
As a new four-door coupe it follows the idea of the CLS, whose design concept has spawned more than its fair share of imitators since its debut in 2003. With its frameless doors, the coupe adopts the design of the Concept Style Coupe into series production. The newcomer features a radar-based braking system as standard which is able to warn the driver of an obstacle from a speed of 4 mph and to initiate precision braking when the driver steps on the brake pedal. The new CLA will be available for ordering from March 2013 and will be delivered to retailers in June 2013.
