German auto giant Mercedes-Benz has teamed up with Garmin to create a smartwatch that can feed important health data back to your vehicle in order to provide you with a calmer, more enjoyable experience. It was never as stylish as it set out to be, though, and instead of being a Mercedes that happened to be cheap, it was more like a cheap auto that happened to have a Mercedes badge.
After countless spy photos and a myriad of teasers, the all-new Mercedes-Benz CLA has officially been revealed to the world.
New CLA gets similar design cues as new CLS, making it more attractive than before. The smoother body helps the CLA to look more expensive than it really is, and the aerodynamics have been improved. Mercedes also notes that handling should be further improved over the old CLA-Class thanks to a lower center of gravity and front and rear tracks that are wider by 2.5 and 2.2 inches respectively.
The new CLA's body is almost 2 inches wider and longer than its predecessor, though the rear-seat leg room is almost identical to the outgoing model, which was already cramped. This version makes 221 horsepower, a 13-horse increase over the predecessor, and 33 more than in the A-Class. However, Mercedes-Benz promises there will be a "broad range" of diesel and petrol engines available featuring manual or dual-clutch transmissions and all-wheel drive at a later stage.
Current indications are that the new CLA will arrive in South Africa either in late 2019 or early 2020. The growth was primarily driven by Long Wheelbase E-Class sedan, which continued to remain the single highest selling model for the brand in January-December 2018 period.
The company will introduce in over 10 new products, including an array of products from the performance brand AMG, this year.
Inside, the all-new CLA-Class shares the same interior design as the other new compact A-Class siblings. Its aesthetics have been updated to resemble the rest of the coupe models in the Mercedes-Benz lineup but the biggest update comes in terms of the onboard technology. Mercedes-Benz have also developed a system by which MBUX only responds to the last person to have said "Hey Mercedes".
Other available in-car features and amenties in the 2020 CLA include: heads-up display, LED ambient lighting, heated seats with massage function, and a plethora of active safety assist systems (emergency stop assist, lange change assist, brake assist, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control with active distance assist). The MBUX uses artificial intelligence to customize the driver's experience and can adapt to the user, Mercedes says.
