2019 Mercedes AMG C43 Cabriolet
2019 Mercedes AMG C43 Cabriolet – Exterior and Interior Walkaround – 2018 LA Auto Show.
The new Mercedes CLA will make its first official appearance at the next CES in Las Vegas, not the most traditional Detroit show. Released next spring, the four-door coupe is expected to draw heavily on the CLS.
Nothing is better in the world of car shows. After Volvo snubbing the Mondial de Paris and choosing the Salon Nautique to present to France its new S60, it is the turn of Mercedes to thumb a nose to the traditional appointments. And for good reason, if the German brand has decided not to travel to the Detroit show, it should not be far to reveal its CLA.
It is indeed the CES of Las Vegas, a show dedicated to new technologies that will have the honor of welcoming this brand new generation of four-door coupe. Opening just a few days before Detroit, it will welcome this unprecedented version, which is renewed after six years of career. No doubt because Mercedes wants to play the card of technology, especially since the launch of its new Class A and MBUX system with advanced voice recognition. Logic therefore to choose an appointment prized by enthusiasts but also large tech companies, to position themselves in this niche and leave the traditional lounges to others.
For the moment, information is scarce on this new generation, whose style should, however, draw heavily on the CLS, while distinguishing itself from the all-new sedan A class, which it could have cannibalized. So we should find in front two tapered optics, while the ribs on the hood will be preserved, making a very subtle homage to the mythical 300 SL. It will however wait a little longer to know the final style of this CLA, although Mercedes has just unveiled a first teaser, revealing the roof, flanks and trunk. Nothing, however, has been said about the engines, but hybrid or electric versions should probably be planned.
See you on January 8 to discover this new Mercedes CLA in its entirety. Subsequently declined shooting brake version, it should probably take the cabin of the new Class A with its dual screen and embedded technologies. The official launch is expected for next spring, prices likely to be announced…
