Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class

The Mercedes-Benz CLA caters to buyers wanting a stylish German small sedan with hatcback-like proportions but lots of luxury.

Now in its second generation, the CLA has grown significantly for this latest generation, with the aerodynamic sedan now closer in size to the C-Class sedan than the booted A-Class it shares much of its mechanical parts with.

As a larger and more stylish model, the CLA is naturally more expensive than the A-Class, and will set buyers back in the region of $60,000 for an entry-level model.

While it is a bit of a niche vehicle the CLA has rivals from fellow German manufacturers in the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe and Audi A3 sedan.

What does CLA stand for on Mercedes-Benz?
