New Mercedes-Benz CLA in Durham

The Mercedes-Benz CLA in Durham is the Four-Door Coupe That Gives It All

Too often, smaller coupes are full of compromises. Not enough comfort; not enough room for elbows and knees; not enough technology; not enough fun. And all in the name of keeping costs low and attainability high, in an attempt to draw in prospective converts into the luxury market. For the Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe, drivers in Durham, Raleigh, and Chapel Hill don't need to choose between the convenience and pleasure of a small four-door coupe--and getting everything that they want.

The new Mercedes-Benz CLA comes in three unique model offerings: the entry-level Mercedes-Benz CLA 250, the more capable Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 4MATIC, and the high-performance Mercedes-AMG CLA 45. Which will be right for your Morrisville or Hillsborough lifestyle? Explore below to find out.

Dressed to Impress

Although the Mercedes-Benz CLA is the smallest car in the Durham luxury vehicle lineup here--as well as the most affordable in the lineup, with prices starting under $35,000--it takes it commitment to interior comfort and quality seriously, just like any other Mercedes-Benz. It has earned its Star, with an intuitively-designed and smartly-laid-out cabin, with a wide touchscreen for communication and media, and available upgrades like a Panorama roof, sport seats, and advanced navigation and media systems. It's rare luxury at an exceptional value.

Compact and Clever

Like any good sports car, the Mercedes-Benz CLA was designed to move--and to be very moving, too. That’s why Mercedes-Benz engineers utilized advanced aerodynamics testing to build, slice, carve, and craft a beautifully-curved body that's reminiscent of famous coupes of the past, but large enough to offer four-door convenience and practicality in its sleek design. It glides effortlessly through the air whether you're hugging a tight corner or opening it up on the highway--making it a dream to drive just about anywhere.

Three Flavors of Performance

Three configurations--three powertrains. The Mercedes-Benz CLA is remarkable in its ability to be versatile, and its selection of engine options makes it a particularly option for those in Raleigh and Chapel Hill who want more. The base model is equipped with an athletic, responsive 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine for swift power and urban-ready fuel economy; the Mercedes-Benz CLA 4MATIC Coupe adopts the same engine and equips the brand's legendary 4MATIC All-Wheel-Drive system. The top-of-the-line performance model utilizes a handcrafted AMG 2.0L turbo engine to deliver mind-blowing power in a tight, compact package.

Why might this model be a good fit for you? It's surprising starting price makes it ideal for those drivers in Durham or Raleigh who may be dreaming of a luxury car, but who thought they would have to settle for simply a well-equipped economy car--and it's a comfortable fit for city drivers of any type who are simply looking for a fast, fun car to navigate the busy streets of North Carolina.

As with many individual models within the Mercedes-Benz lineup in Hillsborough, the Mercedes-Benz CLA is available with an AMG performance variant. It offers a trim-specific engine, trim-specific drivetrain (torque-vectoring AMG Performance 4MATIC All-Wheel Drive), and a full arsenal of AMG upgrades including sport wheels, a lowered body, and custom interiors.
