First-Class Features of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLA

CLA250-and-CLA45Get behind the wheel of one of the excellent 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLA class models to enjoy top of the class performance while driving around Roanoke, Bedford, and the rest of Virginia. From the engine to the transmission, the CLA-Class was made with performance in mind. This four-door coupe even has a sporty exterior so everyone can tell at a glance what it is capable of.

Turbocharged Engine

The first class performance of the 2016 CLA-Class begins with the new inline 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. It generates 208 horsepower with an increase in torque while decreasing gas consumption thanks to rapid-multi-spark ignition and third-generation direct injection. To save fuel further while enjoying turbocharged power, take advantage of the ECO Start/Stop system, which doesn’t hesitate to flare back to life instantly when you are ready to get moving.

Dual Clutch

The dual-clutch 7-speed transmission is the perfect combination of everything you love about automatic and manual transmissions without having to worry about each transmission’s negatives. It is comfortable enough to be an automatic but fun and efficient just like manual transmissions. The 7-speed DCT has a racing-derived design so you can quickly shift. Get the most out of the driving modes with DYNAMIC SELECT, and use the paddle shifters to stay in control.

CLA45

To truly experience power behind the wheel of the CLA-Class, opt for the 2016 AMG CLA45. This remains the most powerful of all 4-cylinders in production and has gotten more impressive. For 2016, you get 375 handcrafted horsepower, the class-leading figure. There is even a maximum turbo boost of 26.1 psi.

4MATIC

Don’t worry about the weather outside, whether you are in the middle of a winter blizzard or a spring rainstorm, thanks to the CLA-Class and its 4MATIC all-wheel drive system. This Mercedes-Benz AWD system is efficient, lightweight, and highly responsive. The 4MATIC will send as much as 50 percent of your engine’s output to your rear wheels whenever you need it and for as long as you need it, without hesitation so you never lose traction.
