The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA performance makes it a great option for San Diego drivers wanting a small but sporty coupe. Compared to the Audi A3, the CLA Coupe is equipped with a stronger base engine. Additionally, it’s available as an AMG® model (AMG® CLA 45) and with optional package upgrades for a more athletic look and feel. Explore the new CLA Coupe‘s performance specs and features below!

CLA Engine & Transmission

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe is powered by a 2.0L turbo inline-4 engine. Thanks to its twin-scroll turbo, it produces up to 208-hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Standard ECO-START® helps conserve fuel by turning the engine off during idling, and DYNAMIC SELECT® includes an ECO mode (as well as Comfort and Sport) that favors fuel-efficiency. Couple those features with the quick-shifting standard 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and you have a sporty coupe with silky-smooth handling.

For more power, you can move from the CLA 250 to the AMG® CLA 45. It’s powered by a handcrafted AMG® 2.0L turbo inline-4 engine that produces 375 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, it comes standard with an AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® DCT 7-speed dual-clutch automatic, AMG® Performance 4MATIC® all-wheel drive, and AMG® Sport Suspension.
