Mercedes retools second-generation CLA with sportier design

Mercedes-Benz India sales rises 1.4% to 15,538 units in 2018

German auto giant Mercedes-Benz has teamed up with Garmin to create a smartwatch that can feed important health data back to your vehicle in order to provide you with a calmer, more enjoyable experience.

Mercedes-Benz has said that the second-generation CLA coupé, revealed at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas, will offer the sportiest driving dynamics of its new wave of compact cars.

On Tuesday, the group that owns Mercedes-Benz published its numbers for past year.

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA has finally been unveiled at CES 2019 and it's no longer the entry-level Mercedes sedan it once was.

When it arrives in the US, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 will be equipped as standard with the automaker's MBUX infotainment system that offers personal assistant features, similar to home smart speaker or smartphone functions.

A pair of 10.25-inch screens can also be choosen at an extra cost.

Meghan Markle roles REVEALED: What are Meghan's first royal patronages?
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex began renting the Cotswold's property before their wedding in May last year on a two-year lease. The Queen has passed on two patronages to the Duchess of Sussex as she seeks to step back from royal duties.

Mercedes claims the MBUX system has improved natural voice recognition and can comprehend more complex situations than before, while owners that wear a Garmin vivoactive 3 Smart Watch (which was revealed alongside the CLA at CES) can share personal details with the auto - such as heart rate - to link with the Energizing Coach function that can alter the mood of the cabin by manipulating the air conditioning, seat heating, ventilation and massage, music and ambient lighting. The new CLA is bigger too, measuring 4688mm long (+48mm), 1830mm wide (+53mm) and 1439mm tall (-2mm). It makes 221 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, up slightly from the last model's 208-hp turbo-4.

By the market launch in May, there will be a broad range of diesel and petrol engines available featuring manual or dual-clutch transmissions and 4MATIC all-wheel drive.

The new CLA is larger than the outgoing model and surprisingly, even better looking too!

The new CLA has coupe-like tail lamps and a short bootlid. The vehicle will most likely get the MBUX infotainemnt system with augmented sat-navigation and more.

New CLA gets similar design cues as new CLS, making it more attractive than before.

The CLA borrows semi-autonomous driving technology which is the same found in the S-Class luxury saloon, including autonomous emergency braking, lane-keep assist and radar-guided cruise control. The CLA rides atop the same structure as the A-Class, but offers a swoopier look and more expressive details, such as a more aggressive front bumper and more graceful rear doors that don't end as abruptly as those on the current model.
