Based on the architecture of the new A-Class hatchback, from launch the CLA will be offered with a choice of three different drivetrains. However the U.S. will only be getting one option, and that comes in the form of the CLA 250, which is powered by a turbocharged 1.8 litre four-cylinder engine producing 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque. A seven-speed automatic transmission and FWD is standard, while a 4Matic AWD system developed with the help of AMG will be optional.
Other markets will have the extra choice of the CLA 180 and the CLA 220 CDI. The CLA 180 is powered by a 1.6 litre four-cylinder producing 122 horsepower and (147 lb-ft) 200 Nm of torque. While the CLA 220 CDI offers 170 horsepower and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque from its 2.2 litre direct-injection diesel engine.
Later more drivetrain options, including an AMG-powered version will become available.
