We often gaze into the night sky and ponder the distance of the stars. They’re so far away, so out of reach, but what if there was a three-pointed star that you could park in your own backyard? Luxury vehicles are often thought of as a distant dream for drivers, but unlike the stars in the sky, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe won’t burn you if you can get your hands on one. As it turns out, it’s easier for Miami FL drivers to get behind the wheel than many of them may think, and the new model is already available here at Mercedes-Benz of Cutler Bay.
Though the 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA is listed as a coupe, this has more to do with the sloping style of its design, as it still offers the convenience of four doors. The coupe appearance simply provides an attractive profile that lends itself perfectly to the lineup.
|2.0-liter Turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine||8-inch color screen||Diamond-block grille|

Relatively new to the lineup, the Mercedes-Benz CLA was first introduced during the 2014 and last refreshed for 2017. That being the case, it’s hard to improve upon a model that already offers so much to luxury car shoppers on a budget. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA comes in three options: CLA 250 Coupe, CLA 250 4MATIC® Coupe and AMG® CLA 45 Coupe. The base model CLA 250 comes with the 208 horsepower engine, and the middle trim adds the 4MATIC® all-wheel drive system, which boasts improved handling in all weather.
The AMG® CLA 45 provides a steep increase to performance, with a handcrafted 2.0-liter inline-4 turbo that offers up an astounding 375 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, earning a manufacturer-tested 4.1 second 0-60 acceleration.
Performance, luxury and an attractive design all make the 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe a worthwhile entry into the Mercedes-Benz lineup. Find out if it’s the right choice for you when you stop by Mercedes-Benz of Cutler Bay for a test drive.
