-Hot CLA with over 300bhp
-4MATIC and seven-speed DCT
-New York Auto Show reveal
Mercedes-Benz has released a teaser image for the upcoming CLA 35AMG 4MATIC ahead of its probable debut at the 2019 New York Auto Show. As is the case with the previous formula, it’s expected to be a tuned CLA sedan with over 300bhp, dual clutch gearbox and 4MATIC AWD system. This isn’t the full fat AMG model in the range and it is expected to sit under the upcoming CLA45AMG which will be even more powerful.
While the teaser only reveals the badge, we can pretty much tell you that the CLA35 will get the AMG body kit, interior trim and wheels as a part of the deal. The engine will be a Affalterbach-tuned four-cylinder 2.0-litre unit and this same engine is expected to come to the CLA45 in a higher state of tune. We, in India, are likely to get only the CLA45AMG when it is launched later this year, but the way Mercedes has been expanding its line-up, it is hard to predict what will happen just yet.
