Mercedes CLA & CLA 45 AMG teased in official spy photos [video]

Both models will feature 4MATIC all-wheel drive

Mercedes has released the first official spy photos of the CLA and CLA 45 AMG.

Set to debut at the Detroit Auto Show early next year, the four-door coupe has sleek styling that is heavily influenced by the Concept Style Coupe. Both models have a similar appearance but the AMG variant is distinguished by unique bumpers, a revised exhaust system and five-spoke alloy wheels.

Engine options will carryover from the A-Class, but the CLA 45 AMG will feature a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 354 HP (260 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. It will be connected to a 7G-DCT transmission and a 4MATIC all-wheel drive system with a "Torque on Demand" rear axle.

Mercedes also confirmed the CLA 250 - which features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 211 HP (155 kW) - will be available with all-wheel drive.

This car seems GREAT ! but there are few drawbacks... 1) Where is the special grill from the concept car? 2) The wheel is a bit too small not proportional to its body somehow. 3) Where is the magnificent headlights?Gosh I want to see that in CLA! 4) and I WANT V8 Version for this one... Mercedes AMG is nothing without its V8. it too quite perhaps? 5) And all-wheel drive for this really? I don't think that gonna be fun to drive either... gonna miss those drifting stuff T_T Still, as overall design it quite good...no doubt about it...Let see how it drives soon hehe

Big fan of this car but disappointed they have put the regular a class headlights on it when the concept sleek versions still looked like the a class but better...made it look more worth while Of the extra money

Seems like the spy pics of the diamond grille CLA really wasn't the 45 AMG after all. The exhausts here are totally different, more like the A45, and the breaks also seem to be bigger. Super nice either way! =D
