2016 Mercedes-Benz CLA250
The name Mercedes-Benz is synonymous with luxury performance, and the 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 Coupe is an inspired vehicle that lives up to that legacy. With a racing-inspired transmission and turbo charged engine, the CLA 250 is sure to please discerning drivers, and is available now at Mercedes-Benz of Temecula.

Efficient Use of Power

A racing heart beats under the hood of the new CLA 250, with 208 hp waiting to propel you around every curve. The 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine in the CLA 250 delivers more power from less fuel while the high-pressure Direct Injection and rapid-multispark ignition fine-tune themselves in mere milliseconds. The twin-scroll turbo boosts response while 258 lb-ft of torque make quick work of acceleration. Even with all of that power, the CLA 250 still gets an impressive 26 mpg city and 38 mpg highway. Additionally, the ECO Start/Stop system further reduces emissions and fuel consumption by automatically shutting off the engine at stoplights and other idle conditions. Once you lift your foot off of the brake, the engine restarts instantly for immediate acceleration so you can take command of the road once more.

Smooth Shifting

The engine of the CLA 250 is beautifully complimented by the racing-inspired 7-speed dual clutch transmission, which combines the refinement of an automatic and the quick response of a manual. With dual clutches capable of gear changes quicker than possible with a traditional manual gearbox and three overdrive ratios for improved mileage at highway speeds, the transmission of the CLA 250 shifts nimbly for a smooth experience. ECO, Sport, and Manual modes allow you to choose from the efficiency of a fully automatic transmission, an intensified response, or the excitement of shifting on the fly via steering-wheel mounted paddles strategically positioned behind the upper steering-wheel spokes for complete control of your driving experience.

Responsive Handling

The front-wheel drive system of the CLA 250 is an ideal match for its sporty demeanor. Electromechanical power steering provides a quick response around corners and easy maneuvering at lower speeds while delivering straight-line stability. The Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) is precisely calibrated and works with the Electronic Traction System (ETS®) to enhance tire grip during acceleration. The compact powertrain design of the CLA 250 leaves more room for the cabin and trunk while maintaining the CLA’s sleek profile.
