Gallery: NAIAS 2013: Mercedes Unveils Sleek New CLA Class Compact Sedan...

 
Expect the new CLA Class to hit U.S. showrooms by mid-2013 as a 2014 model and to change the face of compact cars in America.

The CLA Class retains styling cues from Mercedes’ Concept Style Coupe unveiled last year in Beijing, with an interior and front end similar to the brand’s European A Class hatch. The vehicle is just 15 feet long, with space for four inside or an optional fifth. The first models to launch will be crucial to the brand’s success in the growing compact vehicle market and will feature a turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder gas engine with 211 horsepower and a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with over 330 horsepower, plus possibly a 2.1-liter diesel. Expect the new CLA Class to hit U.S. showrooms by mid-2013 as a 2014 model and to change the face of compact cars in America.
