Based on a small, front-wheel-drive platform, the Mercedes-Benz CLA is what the automaker calls a four-door coupe. However, in actuality, it is a sedan, equipped with a fast roofline to take on the appearance of a sportier coupe model. Mercedes brought the CLA to the U.S. market to provide aspirational buyers a lower-priced, but still stylish path to owning one of its cars. The second-generation Mercedes CLA arrived for the 2020 model year, equipped with a more upscale and better-proportioned design modeled after the larger Mercedes CLS. It also has the latest Mercedes safety and infotainment technology, and comes in AMG-tuned performance variants.
