CLA-Class shows why a low-carbon future won't be void of high-performance cars

CLA-Class shows why a low-carbon future won't be void of high-performance cars-cla_engine_award.jpg

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class and 2015 GLA-Class have won the 2014 International Engine of the Year award in the New Engine category. In this story, originally written by Denis Flierl for TorqueNews.com the author discusses why a low-carbon future won't be void of high-performance cars based on Mercedes CLA-Class example.

The 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that’s under the hood of the 2014 Mercedes CLA45 AMG and upcoming 2015 GLA45 AMG is a big winner. The handcrafted AMG 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine has been awarded the best new engine by Engine Technology International magazine.

This highly coveted 2014 International Engine of the Year award was given to Mercedes-Benz and won by a landslide over engines from BMW, Peugeot and Porsche. The M133 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder Mercedes engine is handcrafted by AMG, the performance division who pumped out the powerplant for Mercedes and comes in the 2014 A45 AMG, 2014 CLA45 AMG and the upcoming 2015 GLA45 AMG.

High-performance and low emissions

These cars are winning over a new generation of performance enthusiasts who have never purchased a Mercedes vehicle before. The engine won plaudits from the judges at Engine Technology International magazine for not only delivering in terms of high performance, but also for its low emissions output. Dutch journalist Natan Tazelaar said, “If this is what being environmentally conscience is all about, then there is no reason for complaining. All the noise speed and excitement you could ask for, without the need for a big thirsty lump of metal under the bonnet.”

Changes for MY 2015 (In the US)

Jul 02, 2014 - 9:38 AM - by Sue Esponte
I know none of you reeeeeeeally care about this since nobody's even thinking about MY15 BUT MB recently released some news on the changes to the CLA for the next model year. So, who's interested?!

*

The CLA receives a multitude of additional options and standard features for MY15. Highlights include:

§ Introduction of new R24 17-inch standard wheel (not pictured)

§ Introduction of KEYLESS-GO as part of P1 Premium Package

§ 218 Rearview Camera now a stand-alone option (in addition to being part of 320 Multimedia Package)

§ 810 harman/kardon sound system now a stand-alone option (in addition to being part of the P1 Premium Package)

§ H79 Aluminum trim now a stand-alone option (in addition to being a no-cost component of the 321 and 421 Sport Packages)

§ Introduction of 877 Ambient Lighting (12 colors) as stand-alone option as well as part of 318 Interior Package

§ Introduction of 646 Edition 1 wheel as stand-alone option (not pictured)

§ Rear armrest including cup holders now standard

§ Power passenger seat with memory turns into a fully manual seat, driver seat remains powered with memory

§ Introduction of new headunit (NTG5*1) with standard iPod interface, Pre-Wiring for Garmin® MAP PILOT, and a display screen upgraded from 5.8-inches to 7-inches

§ Introduction of new steering wheel design

Some neat updates. Personally, the only ones that kind of frustrate me as late comers are the rear arm rest and the push button start, both of which should have been available for MY14.

Special thanks, as always, to member JPMBenz for sharing this information with the Site!

Enjoy!

-Eric

P.S. Deliveries of MY15 cars are estimated to being in mid-December 2014.

*Edited: Because pictures make posts better. Oh, and that's a picture of a 2014 model with aftermarket accessories and modifications so it has nothing to do with 2015. lol

How one lucky winner takes the wheel of 2014 Mercedes CLA-Class

How one lucky winner takes the wheel of 2014 Mercedes CLA-Class-cla_winner.jpg

Mercedes-Benz gave away a new 2015 CLA-Class to one lucky winner. How did she win it?

Original source: Mercedes - Torque News

There was one lucky winner that Mercedes-Benz gave free use of a new 2014 CLA-Class four-door coupe to. How did she win it? Mercedes launched the eagerly anticipated CLA-Class around the globe and gave five of Instagram's all-star photographers a ride in the CLA to promote what they called “Take the Wheel” event.

What was the “Take the Wheel” event?

The five photographers got behind the wheel of the all-new Mercedes-Benz CLA last summer. What is the Instagram challenge about? Mercedes “Take the Wheel” brought together some of Instagram's most influential photographers who drove the 2014 Mercedes CLA. The one who received the most “likes” would win free use of the new four-door coupe for three years.


The five “influencers” documented and shared their driving experiences in the sporty new CLA in a series of consecutive five-day road trips across the U.S. They posted photos and videos to Instagram during their drives.

Win free use of the new CLA

But anyone could get in on the action. Consumers also got the chance to win free use of the new CLA for three years. By visiting a special website, participants were able to submit their Instagram handles and their feeds and instantly became entry portfolios in the contest. The five photographers select one of the Instagrammers who got to take their very own road trip in the CLA. The winner received free use of the new 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class free for three years.

One lucky winner!

If you want a new 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class stand in line

If you want a new 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class stand in line-cla_availability.jpg

Why is the demand so high for the new 2014 Mercedes CLA-Class? Explains Denis Flierl from TorqueNews.com.

Mercedes-Benz can’t keep up with the demand for the new 2014 CLA-Class and they are flying off dealer lots as quick as they get them in. If you go into a Mercedes-Benz dealer here in Denver, Colorado, you won’t be able to see the new CLA. There is a one-two week wait just to get the new four door coupe into the showroom. Why is the demand so high?

The new 2014 Mercedes CLA-Class comes with great styling and it comes with a plethora of standard features. The 2014 Mercedes CLA250 has an MSRP starting at $29,900 plus $925 destination, and that’s attracting a new buyer into Mercedes showrooms. For that starting price, CLA comes standard with HD Radio, Hands-free Bluetooth interface, sport front seats, 14-way front seats with memory, Split-folding rear seats and ambient interior lighting. Buyers are flocking into Mercedes to get one.

We spoke with Marcus at a local Denver Mercedes-Benz dealer and he told us they are having a hard time meeting customer demand. He also said buyers are trading in their bigger cars and wanting the new CLA compact luxury four-door coupe. They are seeing many new buyers “coming into the brand for the first time.”

Marcus told us they can’t keep up with the demand for the new 2014 CLA-Class. “It’s really a hot car right now and selling quickly when they come in. We are having a hard time keeping them in stock. Once they come come in, they go very quickly. We are about a week out right now before we get the next CLA-Class into the showroom.”

Another interesting fact is that buyers are not wanting the new CLA base model at $29,900. They are ordering the four-door coupe fully loaded with extras and... [Read More]

No cats were harmed during the making of this Mercedes-CLA-Class video!

No cats were harmed during the making of this Mercedes-CLA-Class video!-cla_with_catittude.jpg

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class is set be the subject of a new TV ad launching this weekend in the UK.

Originally published at TorqueNews.com under Mercedes News at http://www.torquenews.com/mercedes-benz

You can rest easy because no cats were harmed during the making of this 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class video. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class is set be the subject of a new judged TV ad launching this weekend in the UK. The aerodynamic all-new Mercedes CLA-Class is a car with “cat-titude” and the ad was shown for the first time “a whisker before 7.30 pm”, during ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent on Saturday. What makes the CLA-Class so slippery?

The Mercedes CLA has the one of the most aerodynamic shapes of any production car on the planet. Mercedes wanted to demonstrate just how aerodynamic the new four-door coupe is with a cat. The new ad introduces a sleepy kitty to the CLA’s swoopy coupe form, with predictable results.

The other star is a placid tabby cat called William, who wasn’t harmed and didn’t use any of his nine lives during the making of the video. William the cat was specially trained for the occasion and docile in nature, having appeared on screen for nearly 10 years. The ad uses camera trickery and old fashioned props, enabling William to slide on a piece of gently moved fabric across the windscreen under the careful supervision of his trainer.

Mercedes gives viewers “paws for thought”, and the result is a simple, light-hearted demonstration of slippery aerodynamics in action. It’s a brilliant piece of marketing regardless if you like cats or not. The agency who supplied William, has 30 years’ experience of working with animals for photography, film and advertising. Their pedigree cats have been specially trained for different types of work, more often... [Read More]
