Diesel Mercedes CLA Not Coming to US
text size: A- A+
According to Car and Driver, who are quoting a source within Mercedes-Benz, fitting an urea-injection system to the CLA and selling the diesel with a higher price tag isn’t seen as a feasible project. Unfortunately, the Mercedes-Benz insider said the same thing about the upcoming GLA model, although the crossover would fit a urea system better thanks to its size.
As a reminder, the CLA 220 CDI delivers 167 HP and enables the vehicle to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 8.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 230 km/h (144 mph). Fuel consumption is rated at 4.5 liters/100 km, which means about 52.3 miles per gallon in the US.
