Likely to be powered by a 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder expected to deliver as much as 330bhp and good for a sub-5.0- second dash to a 100kph from nought, the CLA will feature an all-wheel drive system with an AMG seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. It will also have all the usual trappings including a custom sports suspension setup and an electromechanical AMG speed-sensitive steering. With sales set to begin some time next year, it could well have its official debut at the Geneva motor show in March.
