Visit a Tucson Mercedes-Benz dealer to preview the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class. According to Mercedes-Benz, this compact 4-door coupe carries the exterior styling from the Concept Style Coupe concept vehicle.
Under the hood, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class is equipped with a turbocharged, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine generating 208 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. An Eco Stop/Start system comes standard, shutting off the engine while the vehicle is idling in traffic or at an intersection. A 7-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission is also standard, which feeds power to the front wheels.

What really makes the CLA stand out is how it strays away from the formal look of other Mercedes-Benz cars. Featuring a combination of curved surface details and frameless doors, the CLA250 is equipped with standard LED running lights and 17-inch aluminum wheels with run-flat tires.

Inside, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class offers seating for four passengers. A standard 5.8-inch display screen sits atop round air vents, and the CLA250 comes standard with Bluetooth connectivity, Mbrace 2 smartphone integration and telematics service, and Anthracite cabin trim.

According to Mercedes-Benz, the new 2014 CLA250 will be offered with a variety of option packages and a handful of separate options. An optional Sport package includes 18-inch AMG-sourced aluminum wheels, perforated front brake discs, sport body styling kit, and accent stripes on the front seats. A Driver Assistance package adds Distronic adaptive cruise control, Blind Spot Assist system, and a Lane Keeping Assist system. The Premium package includes a premium surround-sound audio system with an iPod interface and satellite radio, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, auto-dimming rearview mirrors, compass, and a universal garage door opener. The Multi-Media package adds a 7-inch display screen, voice-recognition technology, navigation system, reversing camera, 10 GB music hard drive, CD/DVD changer, and SD card slot.

As far as safety, the new Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class is equipped with standard Collision Prevention, a radar-based braking system that provides visual and audible warnings of potential collisions to the driver, primes the Brake Assist system to initiate full power braking when the driver steps on the pedal, and, if a collision cannot be avoided, automatically brakes the car and makes best use of available space to minimize impact force. Assist Attention Assist technology, which is designed to recognize when a driver might be drowsy or distracted is also standard.
