As I've said before Mercedes badging used to make sense. A 450SEL used to mean 4.5Liter displacement S for Super class or Sport E for Einspritzer or fuel injected and L for Long. Now it's arbitrary. CLA class A class B class C class E class and S class. The alpha-numeric can mean anything. The rules are loosely defined. I've heard they're changing it again as well.

The 180 and 200 use the same engine, 1.6l Turbo.
But what you will find is that the 180 is slightly de tuned to reduce the hp/kw.
That is why you will see on some of the piggy back ECU you can buy for the CLA, the one for the 180 and for the 200 will bring the hp/kw up to the same number.

There is also a difference in front axle and back axle. It says so on the MB dutch website where you can see all the differences.
