Mercedes has revealed the facelifted CLA in both its standard sedan and Shoot Brake avatars. The car is the latest of the company’s small offerings to receive a facelift. Cosmetically, the CLA gets a new grille design with diamond design inserts, reprofiled front bumper with a silver, black or chrome highlight and a revised rear bumper with the exhausts now integrated into the unit.
Inside, the changes are much in line with that on the facelifted A-class, with the revised switch gear and instrument cluster, new upholstery and reworked trim inserts around the cabin. As part of the update, the CLA offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as part add-on options. This allows selected functions to be operated via the steering wheel or head unit controls.
Also available is a new Universal Telephony option that includes a universal smartphone cradle and two charging cables with lightning or micro USB connectors. The CLA also gets the option of LED headlamps, hands-free opening function for the boot and a choice of alloy wheel designs. The line-up now features the new CLA 220 4-Matic all-wheel-drive sedan and the new CLA 180 Shooting Brake which uses a Renault-sourced 120bhp 1.6-litre petrol engine.
