To put it plainly, the 4-door CLA is gorgeous. It was newly redesigned three years ago, so the exterior appearance is still fresh and sleek-looking. The sharp LED headlights sit low on the CLA's snout and are complemented by a diamond grille from Merc. The rear is where the true beauty comes in, but this depends on your preferences, of course. A set of slim wrap-around LED taillights graces the rear and along with two exhaust openings. Both trim levels sit on a set of 18-inch multi-spoke wheels as standard, and items like a panoramic sunroof ship by default. Various exterior styling package can alter its appearance, such as the AMG Line package, with or without the blacked-out Night package. Many optional wheel designs are available in sizes up to 19 inches.
The CLA's dimensions make it larger than the A3 sedan and the 2 Series Gran Coupe. With a length of 184.6 inches, the CLA is longer than the 2 Series Gran Coupe by a good six inches. The Merc has a 107.4-inch wheelbase and a body width of 72 inches - or 78.7 inches including the mirrors. The CLA has a 56.3-inch height. While these remain the same across both derivatives, the curb weight varies according to the drivetrain in question. The base model with front-wheel-drive weighs in at 3,362 pounds. Opting for the AWD version will add just over 120 lbs, taking the figure to 3,483 lbs.

Customizing your CLA is easy, thanks to the extensive range of exterior hues that Mercedes-Benz makes available for it. Polar White, Night Black, and Sun Yellow are the three standard colors, and if you're going to opt for a no-cost color, Sun Yellow is our favorite. A further six metallic shades are available at a cost of $750, though most of them are variants of gray. These include Iridium Silver, Mountain Grey, Mojave Silver, Digital White, Denim Blue, Rose Gold, and Cosmos Black. Those who dare to go bolder can opt for the $1,750 Patagonia Red.
