Mercedes has rolled out a CLA Edition 1, which would only be available for 12 months. Among the exclusive equipment features of this model, which can be powered by any of the engine versions, the NEON ART interior with leather upholstery and black DINAMICA microfibre with yellow contrasting topstitching is worthy of mention.
With air conditioning, 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel with 12 function buttons, steering column adjustable in height and longitudinal direction, green-tinted heat-insulating glass, Audio 20 CD radio with dual tuner, colour display and MP3- WMA- AAC-capable CD drive, six speakers as well as Aux-in socket and USB interface in the centre armrest for external audio and video devices, even the standard equipment of the new CLA-Class is particularly generous. A colour display between the two large dials in the instrument cluster is likewise standard ex-factory for the CLA.
In addition, numerous driving assistance systems offer support for the driver. Standard-fit features for the coupé include ATTENTION ASSIST drowsiness detection and radar-based COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST with adaptive Brake Assist, which now helps to protect the CLA from collisions from a speed of only 7 km/h (previously: over 30 km/h).
With the equipment lines “Urban” and “AMG Line”, three design packages and optional extras, it is possible to individualise the coupé further. The “Urban” equipment line can be combined with all the engine variants, except the CLA 180 BlueEFFICIENCY Edition. Its dynamic impression comes courtesy of the sports seats with their upholstery in ARTICO man-made leather/Corumba fabric. Seats, armrests, multifunction steering wheel and gearshift lever are in nappa leather. The 3-spoke leather steering wheel features perforations in the grip area. The seating comfort package, the multifunction switch on the centre console and the 12-V power outlet in the vehicle rear are all part of the standard equipment scope.
The “Urban” design and equipment line rolls on 5-spoke 18-inch himalaya-grey light-alloy wheels.
“AMG Line” is the name of the second equipment line, available for all the versions of the vehicle with the exception of the CLA 180 BlueEFFICIENCY Edition. Here the emphasis is on the colour red: in the contrasting topstitching on the sports seats (upholstered in ARTICO man-made leather/DINAMICA microfibre), the multifunction sports steering wheel in nappa leather with flattened lower section, and the armrests. Matching these appointments, the stainless steel sports pedals with rubber studs. This line features trim elements in light-tone longitudinal-grain aluminium.
And the exterior is quite as sporty with the “AMG Line” features a twin-pipe exhaust system with rectangular-section tailpipes in polished stainless steel, a diamond-pattern radiator grille with silver pins, 5-twin-spoke AMG 18-inch titanium-grey high-sheen light-alloy wheels, AMG bodystyling, front and rear aprons, side sill panels. If the customer chooses the “AMG Line”, he or she will also receive a CLA-Class with sports suspension and lowered vehicle body, perforated front brake discs and front brake callipers with “Mercedes-Benz” lettering.
Three design packages, “Exclusive”, “AMG Exclusive” and “Night package” offer further individualisation possibilities. The “Exclusive” package which can be chosen in addition to one of the two design and equipment lines, with its extremely select, high-level interpretation of this vehicle segment does all honour to its name, with sports seats upholstered in leather, dashboard and door centre panels in ARTICO man-made leather and trim elements in trapezium-grain aluminium.
The “AMG Exclusive package”, which is only available in conjunction with the “AMG Line”, features heated front sports seats with black RED CUT leather upholstery with red contrasting stitching as well as 4-way lumbar support, dashboard in ARTICO man-made leather with red contrasting topstitching and air vents with silver-chrome surrounds and crosses, aluminium trim elements with light-tone longitudinal-grain, cover over the stowage compartment in the centre console, closing system with infra-red receiver in driver’s door and convenience closing feature.
