The classy German luxury automobile manufacturer Mercedes-Benz has launched their special Mercedes CLA Urban Sport edition cars – the CLA 200 and CLA 200 d Urban Sport targeting young buyers in India.
While India eyes for the new C-Class Merc, sportier and classier, Mercedes-Benz’s newly launched CLA 200 and CLA 200 d Urban Sport special edition cars caught the attention of auto-enthusiasts. The Mercedes CLA Urban Sport edition features both entry-level sedan CLAs in petrol and diesel variants, targeting the youth of India. The sleek and sporty petrol-powered version is priced at Rs 35.99 lakh, whereas the CLA 200 d Urban Sport diesel variant is priced at Rs 36.99 lakh. Both the cars are the updated version of the CLA – packed with visual and feature upgrades, while remaining unaltered mechanically.
With additions like a new Cosmos Black body colour, a black treatment for the grille, and carbon styling on the air-dam and rear spoiler – the Urban Sports get a cosmetic upgrade. Other than that, the new cars get a bunch of fancy feature updates like the THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control that separates the driver zone and the passenger zone for air-conditioning flow and controls; and to better take care of passengers, there are extra rear AC vents. Then there are the “sport” badged floor mats and luminous door slits – and that is pretty-much it about the updates and changes in the new car.
Mechanically, the Urban Sport remains identical to the CLA with 2.0-litre petrol and 2.2-litre diesel engines that are muted with 7-speed automatic transmission and can hit a speed of 100 kmph in 7.1 seconds for petrol and 9 seconds for the diesel variant. Also, the CLA 200 is powered by a 1,991cc 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that produces 184hp and punches out 300 Nm of torque. And the CLA 200d is powered by 2,143cc 4-cylinder diesel engine that produces 136hp and churns out 300Nm of torque – keeping the CLA class to be instrumental in conveying Mercedes-Benz’s new design language.
