Prices for the forthcoming Mercedes-Benz CLA have appeared on the firm's local website and we can share how much this stylish compact vehicle will cost.
The second-generation Mercedes-Benz CLA will be launching in South Africa in the next month or two and we stumbled across pricing for the compact newcomer. From what we can see on Mercedes-Benz's local website, the new CLA will be made available in South Africa with 2 engines.
This generation of CLA sports new underpinnings similar to those of the A-Class hatchback that was launched in South Africa during 2018. In terms of dimensions, that means the newcomer has grown in length and width, while its wheelbase is slightly longer too.
The engines on offer include the 120 kW/250 Nm 1.3-litre turbopetrol unit from the A-Class to power the entry-level derivative, which is the CLA 200. The 2.0-litre turbodiesel unit arrives in the form of the CLA 220d, with a 140 kW and 400 Nm engine. The CLA 200 makes do with its 7-speed dual-clutch while the diesel CLA 220d gets an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The diesel will be the more fuel efficient of the two engines, with Merc claiming 4.3 - 4.4 L/100 km, while its petrol-powered sibling is said to consume 5.3 - 5.5 L/100 km.
Final specifications will be confirmed when the vehicle is launched in South Africa.
