The CLA sits on new 17-inch, 5-spoke alloy wheels while at the rear the facelifted car features LED tail lamps which have undergone a slight design change as well.
Inside, the new CLA is fitted with a new 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display which is available with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay along with Garmin's MAP Pilot GPS system. The driver and front passenger seats are available with memory function as well.
