The new CLA Coupe.

Play by your rules

Everything that makes you special.

The design lets you shine. The performance quickens your progress. The interface speaks your language.

One feature evident when viewed from the side in particular is the front end with the elongated bonnet slanting slightly but dynamically forward. Particularly resplendent when viewed from the front: the diamond radiator grille sparkles elegantly with its filigree design. Not a face like any other, but the face in the crowd.

Feel hugged. The smooth transitions between dashboard, centre console and door trims create the pleasant wrap-around design. This is just as unique in this category as the selection of trim elements and the ambient lighting with up to 64 colours, which shows off everything in its best light.

The Widescreen Cockpit consists of two HD displays beneath a continuous glass surface. The right media display is a touchscreen that shows all infotainment contents and vehicle settings. On the left is a classic instrument cluster. But it is classic in name only. It is fully individualisable thanks to a range of display styles.

This is what freedom feels and looks like. The doors are frameless, making them appear inimitably light and elegant. Not many cars have them, but all legendary coup├ęs do.

If we had to name a design feature that best characterised the new CLA, it would be the muscular shoulders stretching from the front wheels to the sculpted rear end.
