MULGRAVE, AUSTRALIA – July 11, 2013: Mercedes-Benz Australia/Pacific has announced pricing and specifications for the new CLA-Class, the world’s most aerodynamic production vehicle. With three exciting new variants for the Australian market, the CLA-Class embodies the role of the trendsetter, offering innovative styling and dynamic driving capabilities to leave a lasting impression.

“The new CLA-Class seamlessly transfers the expressive avant-garde coupé design into series production” said Horst Von Sanden, Managing Director Mercedes-Benz Cars Australia/Pacific. “The CLA-Class redefines aerodynamic efficiency and emphasises the desire to provide our customers with cutting-edge technology and safety equipment.

With breathtakingly sporty proportions and powerfully dynamic design idiom, the Mercedes-Benz CLA establishes a new vehicle segment.

A host of exceptional features come standard on the CLA-Class including 18” Wheels, THERMOTRONIC, Becker® MAP PILOT Navigation, and a reversing camera.
