Is it a 2019 CLA? If so, the ports in the car are all USB C. Traditional USB ports are called USB A, but industry standards are changing and USB C is going to be the way forward, so I guess you could say the new CLA is trying to future proof itself.

You should have got one USB C to USB A adapter with your car which allows you to connect a normal USB cable for charging.

Depending on your region the car might have wireless charging - in the UK for example it's standard on all models.

You can also easily buy one of the adapters or a new cable really cheaply online. For Samsung S8 you need a USB C to USB C charging cable which will work fine in your car :)
