In 2019 there’s the presentation of the second generation of the CLA Class and its sportier versions: the A45 and the brand new A35. The dimensions of this vehicle are 4.68 x 1.83 meters. The rounded and pleasing design that distinguished the previous generation remains, and many components, including most of the available engines, come from the A-Class and the GLA-Class. The headlights can be equipped in their “MULTIBEAM LED” version, which means that they consume little energy and adapt to ambient light. What impresses the most about this 2nd gen. is the high-level infotainment, which includes the inevitable MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) multimedia system and a very large panoramic display. The details are well done: the air vents, for example, have an attractive and sportive look thanks to their metallic rounded design. The RGB LEDs inside the car can be adjusted with many colors and intensities. Finally, there is the “VOICETRONIC” system, which is to all intents and purposes a vocal assistant. The prices of this car are not low, but they remain in line with those of the competition. The second generation CLA is sold in Coupe (C118) and Shooting Brake (X118) versions.
