Mercedes-Benz presents the revised CLA for 2024


The Mercedes-Benz CLA is a relatively young vehicle in the compact luxury segment. The second generation of the CLA was presented in 2020, but things are moving fast in the luxury segment. Mercedes isn’t quite ready to give the CLA another complete redesign just yet, but the automaker is giving the CLA a mid-cycle refresh for the 2024 model year – likely to keep up revised BMW 2 series.

Some of the changes are minor, but the CLA gets a new mild hybrid system and Mercedes’ latest infotainment system to go with it other brand vehicles. The available AMG model also gets an upgrade for extra performance.

Under the hood, the CLA 250 is now a hybrid with a new 48-volt system. The mild hybrid powertrain consists of a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that still has 221 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The 48-volt hybrid system brings an additional 13 hp in the lower speed range. When braking and accelerating, the starter generator recovers energy that supplies the 12-volt vehicle electrical system and the 48-volt system with power.

Speaking of engines, Mercedes is updating the AMG models available for the CLA. The AMG CLA 45 is replaced by the CLA 45 S. That might seem like a small change, but the S badge version comes with a more powerful engine. The hand-built 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is rated at 416 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. These represent increases of 34 horsepower and 15 pound-feet of torque. Mercedes claims the AMG CLA 45 S can sprint to 60 mph in 4 seconds and has a limited top speed of 155 mph.

For people who think the AMG CLA 45 is too powerful or too expensive, the AMG CLA 35 still sticks with it. It gets a slight boost in performance from the new belt-driven starter-generator found on the base CLA 250. While performance remains the same at 302 hp and 295 pound-feet of torque, the AMG CLA 35 benefits from the same 13 hp boost at low rpm as the non-AMG models.

Beyond the mild hybrid system, the CLA range gets larger screens. The luxury sedan now comes with a 10.25-inch touchscreen and a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster. Both have the latest MBUX infotainment system.

Externally, Mercedes updated the design of the 2024 CLA, although the changes are difficult to see. The front end features a new grille and a redesigned front bumper. Mercedes installed its “LED High Performance” lights on the front end of the CLA, and LED taillights and a new rear diffuser are also used as standard at the rear. Two new shades of blue and three new wheel designs are now available for 2024.

Pricing for the 2024 Mercedes-Benz CLA isn’t available yet, but the automaker confirmed the model will hit dealerships later this year.
