Besides the Premium and Sport packages, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA will also get the Sport Package Plus in the United States. Offered for $3,900 the new Sport Package Plus is available for the CLA250 or the CLA250 4MATIC. According to the ordering guide, the Sport Package Plus comes with AMG bodystyling consisting of a new front gumper, side sills and a new rear bumper, as well as a new set of 18-inch AMG wheels wrapped in 235/40 R18 tires.

Moreover, the package includes a new sport suspension, diamond grille with silver pins, red painted brake calipers, AMG specific front axle/suspension, linear sports steering, red stripes front and rear, the ‘Sport’ badge on the fenders as well as on the floormats and a sportier setup of ‘S’ mode.

Furthermore, the package offers a sportier exhaust system, black MB-Tex/Dinamica seats with red contrast stitching, a sport steering wheel, aluminum trim, red seatbelts, black roofliner and stainless steel paddles.

For those who don’t know, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 starts at $29,990 in the United States, excluding the $925 destination charges. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 4MATIC has a starting price of $31,999, excluding the $925 destination charges.

The CLA250 model is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that generates 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. This engine can push the CLA250 from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.9 seconds, while returning an estimated 26/38 mpg city/highway.

Its astoundingly athletic dimensions and robustly dynamic design style, with its back-and-forth between convex and concave shapes give this four-doored coupé a unique appearance.

The automobile's remarkable features include the bonnet with the front fixed with power domes and diamond radiator grate. The light components and LEDs behind the headlamp’s covering glass have been configured in a way as to produce the distinctive flare effect for the daytime running lights and indicator lights. These light traits define the vehicle's vibrant look and moulds an all-new Mercedes front.

Many details point to, on a design level, that the CLA signifies further developments of the contemporary Mercedes-Benz CLS. Three pronounced outlines provide a framework to the car when viewed from profile: the front structure’s edge above the wings continues to the rear in a distinctive dropping outline. Another leaner outline crosses the shoulder’s muscle over the rear axle, while the third feature outline reaches a voluminous curve from the front wheel to the back. Altogether, these outlines provide depth and vibrancy to the side silhouette.

The rear, emphasising its width, exudes strength and power, featuring a connection between curving shapes and lines. The subtly leaning roof shape and the prominent, signature curves of the rear window give the CLA with a coupé-like character from the back as well.
