This vehicle seamlessly continues the success story of Mercedes-AMG®’s sporty compact cars, while setting completely new and raised standards.

Exterior Design:

  • The new Mercedes-AMG® CLA 45 is demonstrating its high competence in development, once again! The Mercedes-AMG® CLA 45 is is even more distinctive than its predecessors. The exterior exudes sheer driving pleasure, even while at a halt. For the first time, the compact class AMG® models also feature the AMG®-specific radiator grille, as an indicator that it is truly a part of the AMG®-Performance family.  The new Mercedes-AMG® CLA 45 also features deeply contoured headlamps, enhanced hood, wider front fenders, flared wheel arches, and an array of other breathtaking features.

Interior Design:

  • With its sporty looks and the MBUX infotainment system, the high-quality interior creates a close and personal connection between the driver and the vehicle. The driver and the front passenger are seated in contoured seats that give firm support. The standard upholstery of the vehicle is a combination of black MB-Tex and DINAMICA microfiber, which is timeless and highlights the typical AMG® features, with double topstitching in red. The color scheme is also mimicked by the red designo® seat belts and the dashboard trim in black DINAMICA microfiber, accented with a red border. The chromed air vents are also upgraded with a red ring. As an alternative, you can choose for the upholstery to come in MB-Tex in neva grey/black with mid-grey double topstitching and light-longitudinal-grain aluminum trim.
  • The center console, in a high-gloss black, is equipped with a touchpad as standard. In combination with the optional leather package, it also features a silver chrome console trim.
  • The sport AMG® ambiance is also greatly enhanced by the sports pedal set, which is brushed stainless steel with rubber studs, black floor mats with AMG® lettering, etc.

MBUX Infotainment System:

  • The combination of sporty design and sophisticated details is also featured in the MBUX infotainment system with its innovative operating and display concept. MBUX creates a tight-knit connection between the vehicle, driver, and passengers.
  • Visually, the two displays, under one shared glass cover, blend into a widescreen cockpit with maximum-resolution 3D resolution.
  • The customer can choose between three AMG® display styles: “Classic”, “Sport”, and “Supersport”, for the instrument cluster.
  • Via the AMG® menu, the driver can call upon various different displays:
    • Gear display – with yellow “M” symbol in manual mode
    • Warm-up menu – engine and transmission oil temperature
    • Set-up menu – AMG® DYNAMIC SELECT settings
    • G-Meter – longitudinal and lateral acceleration forces
    • Race-timer – stopwatch, lap, and sector times
    • Engine data – output and torque, engine oil and transmission oil temperature
  • The touchscreen multimedia display also emphasizes the dynamic character with individual AMG® displays such as visualization of the driving programs, AMG® TRACK PACE and telemetry data.
  • The voice control that is activated with the words “Hey Mercedes” is also on-board in the new Mercedes-AMG® CLA 45. Thanks to Mercedes’ artificial intelligence, MBUX recognizes and comprehends nearly any sentence from the fields of infotainment and vehicle operation, even if conveyed in an indirect manner.
