Providing the best look yet at the baby CLS, our photographers have snapped these spy photos of the upcoming Mercedes CLA.
First referred to as the CLC, the coupe-styled sedan is actually based on the new A-Class architecture that will find its way to North America. With a Mercedes hatchback an odd proposition for our shores, expect the CLA to make up the bulk of sales, especially with the dramatic styling thatís becoming more clear in the photos.
Expected to be available in both front and all-wheel drive versions, the CLA is likely to come standard with the new 201 hp turbocharged 1.8-liter found in the current C-Class. Transmission choices could include a 6-speed manual (a rarity for Mercedes) as well as the brandís new 7-speed dual clutch automatic.
Thereís also the strong likelihood of a CLA 25 AMG model making over 300 hp.
