Mercedes-Benz CLA180 Coupe AMG Premium Plus:- When it was first launched in 2013, the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class Coupe was the brand’s first-ever front-wheel drive, four-door model. Unveiled in early 2019, the second generation CLA-Class Coupe’s design was inspired by new design language Mercedes-Benz adopted for the latest CLS-Class Coupe.
Compared to its predecessor, the second-generation CLA-Class Coupe is 48 mm longer, 53 mm wider and 2 mm shorter in height while the wheelbase has increased by 30 mm. Featuring an almost flat underbody, the car’s drag coefficient is just 0.23 and this helps with fuel efficiency
Like the A-Class Hatchback and A-Class Saloon, the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system with its dual 10.25-inch touchscreens and “Hey Mercedes” command is available.
