Mercedes-Benz maintains its lead in Indian luxury vehicle segment

11 January, 2019, 16:31 | Author: Sharon Yates
  • Mercedes-Benz India sales rises 1.4% to 15,538 units in 2018

In terms of size, the new CLA measures 4688mm long, 1830mm wide, 1439mm tall and has a 2729mm wheelbase.

Lexus ranked third, with its sales dropping 2.2 percent to 298,310 units, while Audi filled the fourth spot with sales of 223,323 units, down 1.4 percent on the previous year. Mercedes said this, along with the car's lower centre of gravity, helps to ensure it has improved driving dynamics. The company has also announced their new motto for 2019 - Best Never Rest.

In any case, the second-generation CLA isn't as radical a departure from the norm as it largely follows the same formula as its popular (particularly in the USA) predecessor - retaining its sleek four-door coupe profile thanks to its low and swoopy roofline.

Despite the lead and overall increase in volumes, albeit marginal, Mercedes' financial performance is an indicator of the challenges faced by German automaker. The largest tyre and wheel combination available will be 225/40 R19 wrapped over 19-inch wheels. This means more interior space, and an exterior shape that makes the vehicle look more firmly anchored to the ground. The CLA rides atop the same structure as the A-Class, but offers a swoopier look and more expressive details, such as a more aggressive front bumper and more graceful rear doors that don't end as abruptly as those on the current model. Likewise, shoulder room is also up, although legroom measurements remains virtually the same as it was in the old vehicle.

GIVE the new Mercedes-Benz CLA a wave and it can read your mind and body.

The updated MBUX Interior Assist also features interface through non-contact hand gestures.

After a series of teasers, the Mercedes-Benz CLA was finally unveiled.

"Now we go to the next level with an intelligent interior assistance system for the compact class". Active Lane Change Assist is available too, while enhanced Active Brake Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assist are fitted as standard.

At the trade show presentation in Las Vegas, the CLA on display was the CLA 250 with a four-cylinder petrol engine (165 kW/225 hp, 350 Nm) with 7G-DCT dual-clutch transmission (combined fuel consumption 6.3-6.1 l/100 km, combined Carbon dioxide emissions 143-140 g/km)[2].

There should also be a number of high-performance AMG versions such as a 306 hp CLA 35 and a CLA 45, offered in either base 387 hp trim or a pumped-up 421 hp S variant.
