Pros

Efficient usage of space, beautiful styling, economical pricing, good performance, optional all-wheel drive


Model Highlights

The first thing people notice about the CLA is its styling. Mercedes-Benz classifies the car as a 4-door coupe, much like its older sibling the CLS. The comparison is apt, as the CLA borrows much of its design language from its bigger brother. However the base price of a CLA is less than half that of a CLS making the CLA quite a bargain from a styling standpoint.

The CLA utilizes a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine making 208 hp and a very healthy 258 foot-pounds of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard with Mercedes-Benz' 4Matic all-wheel drive system as an option. The only transmission choice is a 7-speed dual-clutch unit, providing the efficiency of a manual with the functionality of an automatic. Performance is sprightly with good acceleration, while fuel economy is also respectable thanks to one of the most aerodynamic bodies ever sold in the U.S.

For its first year on the market, the CLA is available in only one trim level, the CLA250. Standard equipment includes 14-way power adjustable front seats, an 8-speaker CD/MP3/Radio sound system, an auto dimming rearview mirror, rain sensing wipers, heated mirrors, a 5.8-inch color screen, Bluetooth and an integrated garage door opener.

Options are plentiful on the CLA 250 and include items like a panoramic sunroof, HID headlights, a navigation system, heated front seats, PARKTRONIC parking assist and a blind spot assist system. Equipment packages include a sports package with unique exterior details and upgraded brakes, an interior package with leather seating surfaces, a premium package with an uprated stereo and a multimedia package featuring a larger screen and a six disc CD changer.

With the CLA being a bit smaller than typical Mercedes-Benz models, safety was a point of emphasis for the company. Optional safety equipment includes Distronic plus, a radar based cruise control system that can automatically apply the brakes if it senses a collision, as well as lane keeping assist and blind spot assist. Standard safety equipment includes anti-lock brakes and traction control as well as stability control and several airbags for both the front and the sides of the car.


Model News

The CLA is a brand new model. Significantly, it is the first car Mercedes-Benz has ever sold in America with front-wheel drive as standard. It competes at a lower price point than is typical for the luxury marque, while still maintaining all of special touches that make a Mercedes-Benz a Mercedes-Benz.


Value Writeup

The CLA is Mercedes-Benz' attempt to compete with the likes of the diminutive Audi A3 and the BMW 1-series. As the price of gasoline continues to rise, compact luxury cars get more and more popular. Buyers will continue to want all of the technology and luxury features of larger cars without the size or fuel consumption. Mercedes-Benz hopes that attractive styling, a low base price, an upscale name and lots luxury know-how, will be enough to convince buyers to take a serious look at the CLA.

Summary
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain model year 2014 CLA 250C vehicles manufactured September 10, 2014, to September 11, 2014, 2014 CLA 250C 4Matic vehicles manufactured September 13, 2014, to September 25, 2014, and 2014 CLA 45 AMG 4Matic vehicles manufactured September 10, 2014, to September 25, 2014. The affected vehicles have fuses that may have been incorrectly installed in the passenger side interior fuse boxes.

Consequence
If the fuses were not properly installed, they may lose electrical contact. In the event of a loss of electrical contact, certain systems may be impacted, including the function of the front passenger seat occupancy recognition system, the passenger side air bag indicator lamp, the instrument cluster and the windshield wipers. Should the function of the front passenger seat occupancy recognition system or the passenger side airbag indicator lamp be affected, the risk of injury for passengers in the event of a crash would be increased. Should the function of the instrument cluster and the windshield wipers be affected, the risk of a crash would be increased.

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the position and orientation of the fuses, and if necessary, replace the fuse box, free of charge. The recall began on August 18, 2015. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372. MBUSA's number for this recall is 2015060007.
