The USA website says the CLA 250 will get "Sport-tuned suspension".

So which one is that equivalent to on the UK website? The UK gets the following (from UK website):

Comfort suspension (standard on Sport): the new CLA is fitted with optimised McPhersen strut at the front and an all new multi link rear suspension, creating the perfect balance between agility and comfort.

Sports suspension (standard on AMG Sport): It features firmer springing and damping for a sportier feel and 15 mm
Lower at the front and 10 mm lower at the rear than the regular CLA suspension.

What throws me off is that the comfort suspension is standard on their Sport. On their Sport? So maybe that's the one we're getting here in the USA and they're just calling it sport-tuned? Afterall what the Europeans call comfort, many Americans would consider to be firm.

Can anyone set this straight?

The US gets the firmer version of the suspension only. Someone on an earlier report suggested that the US should get the standard comfort suspension, leaving the firmer suspension only for the cars with the Sport Package but that is not the case at lease for 2014. For once, we get the sportier suspension like it or not.
