Model Preview

Mercedes-Benz is set to make significant changes to its lineup structure in the coming years, and the complete redesign of the CLA-Class we’re expecting in 2025 is indicative of that. We’re still awaiting an official release with all the details, but here’s everything we know about the next-generation CLA so far.

Mercedes is slimming down its model lineup and further emphasizing commitments towards luxury and electrification. As a result, the CLA-Class will now be offered as an EV and a mild hybrid. It will also serve as the German automaker’s de facto compact offering, with the A and B Classes found in other markets around the world set to be discontinued.

We haven’t seen what the 2025 CLA-Class will look like, but we do have some interesting insights into its powertrain. According to Autocar, the CLA will ride on the Mercedes Modular Architecture platform. This is noteworthy as the MMA platform can accommodate both gas-powered and all-electric powertrains.

We expect the 221-hp 2.0L mild-hybrid engine found in the current CLA to continue into the next generation, but this is still unconfirmed. We do know that the all-electric CLA will be compatible with an 800-volt system though, and will be able to charge at 350kW systems. The lithium iron phosphate battery is said to be able to go from 10-80% charged in just 30 minutes.

Pricing and release date for the 2025 CLA-Class has yet to be announced, but we expect to see them at dealers sometime next year. We expect an incremental increase over the current CLA’s $40,500 starting price, although the EV model should see a heftier price tag.

The 2025 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class will compete with the Tesla Model 3, BMW i4, Audi A3, and the Polestar 2.
