Blending the sporty appearance of a coupé with the practicality of a compact saloon, the CLA really is in a class of its own. The CLA is completely unique in the medium-sized car market and its specification is as unrivalled as its head-turning appearance. It might have the lowest drag coefficient of any production car – measuring just 0.23 – but the CLA can also seat five in luxurious comfort and has a sizeable boot. What’s more, its level of equipment and driving experience are every bit as impressive as its striking, free-flowing exterior. The CLA is available with a choice of powerful petrol and diesel engines and either a six-speed manual transmission or the 7G-DCT 7-speed automatic, with two sport lines: Sport and AMG Sport.
