2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

, Automotive Editor - December 15, 2017

Model Preview

The Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class received a mid-life refresh for 2017 but remained largely unchanged for 2018. We expect much of the same when the 2019 CLA-Class hits showrooms. If you’re hoping for a complete redesign, you may have to wait until the 2020 model year.

Visually, we expect the 2019 CLA-Class to be virtually identical to the current model. While some buyers may be impatiently awaiting a new design, the latest refresh has successfully been able to satisfy most buyers. For those who prefer something a little hatchback-ier, we expect the A-Class hatchback to hit U.S. shores soon.

We also expect the CLA-Class’ powertrain options to remain the same in 2019. This would mean its CLA250 variant will continue to come standard with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.

Those seeking more performance can opt for the AMG CLA 45, which we expect to feature a 2.0-liter engine with 375 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission should continue handling shifting duties in both versions of the CLA-Class.

The CLA-Class has yet to undergo safety testing by the IIHS, so the jury’s still out on how safe it really is. What we do know is that the 2018 model comes standard with a slew of airbags, forward collision warning with automatic braking, a drowsy-driver warning, and more. We expect this to all remain the same when the 2019 CLA-Class arrives.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official release date for the 2019 CLA-Class, but stay tuned for updates on this.

Pricing is not available for the 2019 CLA-Class yet, but as a carryover, we expect it to remain similar to the current model, which ranges from $33,695 to $51,395 (destination fees included).

Competition for the 2019 CLA-Class will include the Audi A3 and the BMW 3-Series.
