The new A-Class has already proven that the cachet and pleasure of driving a Mercedes is within reach – and now the new CLA-Class takes this ethos a stage further.
(PRWEB) May 31, 2013
The world’s sleekest production car – the new Mercedes CLA – is coming to Jacksons Mercedes-Benz of Poole, Salisbury and Dorchester.
Mercedes’ new CLA-Class is a brand new model for the range – a compact coupé-styled sports saloon that offers speed and aggressive styling in an astoundingly affordable package.
Its contradictions are utterly compelling; a front wheel drive four-door saloon with the presence of a beautiful coupé, a 130mph performance drive for only £24,300.
Or make that 143mph if you choose the £29,355 220CDI version.
Jacksons Group Marketing Manager Michelle East said: “You can be forgiven for thinking that it’s the always the higher budget and AMG models that offer the most exciting drives.
“But the new A-Class has already proven that the cachet and pleasure of driving a Mercedes is within reach – and now the new CLA-Class takes this ethos a stage further.”
Two 16-valve four-cylinder engines are available for the Mercedes-Benz CLA. Both have an EU6 emissions rating:
- CLA180 – a 122hp 1.6-litre petrol engine with a top speed of 130mph, 0-62mph in 9.3 seconds, fuel economy of 37.7mpg (urban) 62.8 (extra-urban) 50.4mpg (combined).
- 220CDI – a 170hp 2.2-litre diesel – top speed 143mph; 0-62mph in 8.2 seconds; 42.8mpg (urban) 74.3mpg (extra-urban) 62.8mpg (combined).
The CLA180 comes with a six-speed manual transmission; the 220CDI has a 7G-DCT seven-speed automatic transmission.
Both models come equipped with the following equipment:
- Audio 20 (SE models) with six-disc CD changer and Media Interface, radio with dual tuner, colour display with 5.8-inch tablet-style screen, MP3/WMA/AAC-compatible CD player, USB port (including CD cover display), telephone keypad and Bluetooth interface with hands-free function and music transfer.
