The CLA is one of the best looking and aerodynamic cars available today with a growing number of fans enjoying what it has to offer. As well as being stylish, the CLA is an economical and practical four-door coupe which is based on the same platform as the Mercedes A Class. The interior does look similar and includes a useful 5.8 inch touchscreen to control various functions such as the radio and even apps from the owner's iPhone.
Among the choice of engines is an excellent 2.1 litre diesel and two petrol versions inCLAuding a powerful 1.6 litre. The 2.1 litre diesel in the CLA 220 CDI is the cheapest to run and will return around 67mpg with CO2 emissions of 109g/km. Choose the CLA 180 petrol engine and the economy will be around 52mpg with emissions of 126g/km. Those are quite impressive economy figures for a car of this size and the market it is aiming for and handling really is impressive as well. There's also an excellent suspension and owners can choose between 'Sports' which will stiffen the suspension to give a more dynamic performance or 'Comfort' which will soften it to deal with the bumpy roads we have in the UK. Comfort will always almost be the default setting.
Owners will also find that the CLA is a comfortable and pleasant ride, insulation is excellent which means there's very little road or tyre noise. There's lots of room on board for adults though tall people may find the legroom and sloping roof leaves something to be desired when sat in the rear seats. The CLA is also very safe to drive and the firm has added a raft of equipment as standard to help make this an impressive offering.
