With looks that get looks and bold, black accents, the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35 coupe asserts itself with a distinctive grille, lower bodywork and 18-inch AMG wheels. Canada’s top luxury website will take you through the best vehicle features and underscore what we love most about this true luxury car.
A grey, Toronto day is instantly brightened as the “Sun Yellow” AMG CLA 35 4MATIC pulls up to greet you. A true feeling of luxury takes over as you slide into the driver’s seat and take the wheel.
The standard AMG performance steering wheel features touch control buttons, shift paddles and nappa leather trim. It’s a treasure to find everything within reach of your fingertips with both hands on the wheel.
Grippy, DINAMICA microsuede side grips give a more surefooted feel in your hands. The wheel narrows at the side grips for added performance control. That’s a unique feeling the moment you take the wheel.
With the AMG driver’s package the AMG performance steering wheel with AMG Drive Unit buttons connects you to the handling of AMG Ride Control. This model has an upgraded track package so you really notice a difference in brakes, steering and drive performance. We tested the brakes. Despite all the power behind a track-tuned CLA 35, it can certainly still stop on a dime.
While embracing curves, Mercedes-Benz is always sure to offer the pinnacle when it comes to cabin technology. Hand gestures activating features, wireless smartphone charging and the widely recognized responsive centre console touch pads create a most comfortable drive.
A wide array of driver technologies boost the experience
All the technological features you come to expect from Mercedes-Benz are there. But the fine touches are most definitely in the luxurious details. One feature is the leather wrapped centre console that opens on one side for the passenger without disturbing the driver who may be resting their elbow on the other side. Custom climate control and programmable driver settings put individual comforts first.
Racer-red stitching is featured throughout the interior. A standard dual 10.25 inch digital display includes a central multimedia touchscreen and reconfigurable instruments with AMG-exclusive design, readouts and menus. Head-Up Display (HUD) projects key driving information and SIRIUS XM details closer to the natural line of sight in the windshield.
It’s a 4-door pillarless coupe with surprisingly ample space in the trunk. While we’re talking about what’s at the back, there’s a feature that we fell in love with. The Mercedes-Benz symbol on the trunk flips open when the vehicle is in park or reverse to reveal a hidden rear camera. In the old days that was exactly where you might use a key to open the trunk. The feature is super futuristic to see in action.
0-100 km/h in 4.9 seconds
The 302 HP AMG CLA 35 exudes passion and panache. The engine consists of AMG-enhanced 2.0L inline-4 turbo. 295 lb-ft torque and propels you from 0-100km/hr in 4.9 seconds. The “Sun Yellow” Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35 may be the brightest winning superstar at the track. But when it comes to performance it’s also most enviable.
Off the track, back in the city AMG CLA 35 impresses around the clock. As night falls, the spectacular AMG-Night package steps into the spotlight. It showcases customizable ambient interior lighting and exciting features like projecting the Mercedes Benz insignia on the ground in white light at the driver and passenger doors.
Overall, Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35 handles, performs and parks effortlessly, absolutely living up to the idea that it’s impossible to overlook!
